I only stayed for 5 nights but would have stayed a lot longer if I could. The lodges were very well furnished with a kitchenette and shower room as well as the normal chairs desk etc. Very friendly staff. On the whole a good place to stay.

This was an awesome experience - from the reception to the chalets. The decor in the rooms are out of this world and we felt so special and at home. The rose petal heart on the bed was so romantic. One of the most memorable Mothers Days ever.

Thank you for the accommodation was lovely. The bed was comfortable and the area was secluded and safe. The breakfast was very average though for the price we paid. Overall it was good value for money and I do love Chartwell.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are delighted to hear that you had a memorable experience while staying with us. We regret however that you didn't find something suitable at our extensive breakfast buffet offering fresh fruit salad, yoghurts, cereals & muesli, bread & condiments and juice besides the cooked breakfast we served to order....

Its a pity we were unable to stay overnight as planned due to emergency at home but the hours spent there will be memorable. The honeymoon suite was absolutely lovely. I wish the toilet was sound proof and had a door for privacy. We are definately coming back to finish what we started

As always the service is excellent. I would just recommend that the thatching in the unit we stayed in (number 3) be attended to. It was raining and it was leaking in two places. Further we will stay at Aquanzi again. Thank you.

14 to 16th March at Aquanzi Lodge. It was an overall pleasant stay : but the advertisement is quite misleading because it clearly states FREE breakfast! and FREE parking. We had to pay an additional R1200 for our 2 breakfasts! When I expressed my dismay I was met with a nonchalant remark that breakfast was free only when you book... More

Thank you for visiting Aquanzi Lodge and taking the time to review our establishment. We regret the misunderstanding, but your booking was a room only booking, indicated on Nightsbridge. Breakfast is an optional extra which you booked upon check in at R 75 per person. We do run a special on stays for 3 nights or more. You would have... More

A big thank you for hosting my family and I. Everyone enjoyed the place and we're even along why I didn't organise for two nights. You were very patient with me and my late bookings and changing of rooms. Big ups to Natalie and everyone at Aquanzi.

Overall a pleasant stay. Grounds are immaculate and we loved the floating hippo head in the swimming pool. Decor in the rondavels is mismatched and confusing as far as the overall theme goes. Ornate bedside lamps combined with "AFRICAN". Framed seashells in the bathroom with an ornate mirror- a mismatch of design. Bathroom basin had no plug and everything (Towels)... More

Thank you for the review. We welcome constructive criticism, however find it rather disturbing to have been told upon check that a bad Tripadvisor review will be posted, even before seeing our establishment or chalets. It is a pity you didn’t enjoy your stay as much as other guests did. More

I've always enjoyed the outdoors and love good scenery. This week, I found myself in a tranquil bush veld setting, imitating nothing short of Limpopo’s vistas, but the reality is that I was in Fourways, Gauteng! I'll never forget the sign on the basket in my room, stating "beach towels" and I asked Cindi from Aquanzi- "you mean, pool towels?"... More
