Lovely looking hotel with great views from all the rooms. Fronts on the beach. Parking under roof available. Staff generally very helpful. Aircon in rooms. Daily tea nice touch.Limited number of activities. Games room far from pool and other activities. Had to call 4 times in 7 days about problems with electric barbeque. Food choices did not tempt me.

Resort is nice and clean, linen is good and beds comfortable, it is how ever starting to show its age, I believe they are starting an extensive upgrade program this year. Pools and surrounds are good. Staff was very friendly and helpful apart from on 1st day of stay, where we had a poor food experience. Although restaurants around the... More

This was the second time we stayed at La Montagne for a week, out of season (Nov'14) and again, we enjoyed our stay. La Montagne is as good as it gets re the location of the hotel (or rather resort) as it is situated right on the main beach of Ballito, all rooms having a superb view of the ocean.this... More

This alleged resort is "outdated" on every level, to say the least. Extremely disappointed and would never chose this resort again. The rooms are shabby, the furniture is disgusting and management don't do what they say.

This resort's website is very misleading - the rooms and resort are about 20 years behind what is shown on the website. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit for 5 days and we were very disappointed. The unit itself was very small, the main bedroom was pretty much "the lounge" and the overall unit was in need of a... More

I've stayed several times at La Montagne, and still I'm amazed with the view of the units. Absolutelly oriceless! no matter what kind of weather. Besides anything else is the friendly staff and a very comfortable clean unit.

We recently stayed at a 4 sleeper apartment at the La Montagne,Ballito. Pleasant stay,facilities were average, neatness of the bedrooms and dinning areas were ok but the bath facilities could do with major improvement. Considering its rated 3 star self catering is acceptable but basic neatness by cleaning staff should be maintained. The place had a rustic feel but i... More

We stayed at La Montagne for 3 days. This resort is very well positioned for beach lovers, a stones throw away from the beach with great activities planned for the kids, I would recommend this resort to anyone. The unit we stayed in was clean and well equipped with a spacious balcony overlooking Ballito's long sandy beach. We ate at... More
