This hotel is definitely not as portrayed on the internet. There is no spa facilities. The tennis courts are in a bad condition. The building needs renovations and the rooms smell damp. The breakfast is OK, and the staff are friendly and helpful. This hotel definitely has potential but needs proper management.

I stayed at this hotel beginning of Jan 2015. There is no spa. The pool was green. Our room was smelling of damp and very dusty. Air-con did not work, they then fixed it. Our room phone did not work. Staff is very helpful and sweet. The beach is ±100m away which you have to walk down steps. The beach... More

This review should serve as a warning to all guests, who might think that the Wilderness Beach Hotel actually cares about its guests. Expect a pool with broken/missing tiles; a broken step ladder lying by its side; mould; and one broken umbrella. Any game of tennis is impossible thanks to the broken fence littering the court. The breakfast is just... More

Breakfast menu was the same for all 4 days we were there. Management have no idea what is happening. The room telephone never worked, so you have to walk to reception to... More

I was booked in for 2 nights but checked out after 1! The hotel is looking very run down, the pool bar is non existent as was our shower curtain... We decided not to risk breakfast. One positive is the beds were clean.
