We arrived at La Montagne and were given a room 306. Small but ok for 2 people. However, we happened to get the only room in the facility with a shower curtain. Needless to say, there was water everywhere. The original fridge had been replaced by another too big for the room so that gave a cramped feeling. Time to... More

Whilst holidaying on the dolphin coast of Ballito one comes to admire the views and calmn the ocean brings. The hotel is ideally situated however is in need to an upgrade. The rooms are ok however the cleaning services used is in dire need of being sorted out. Overall the week spent soaking up the sun and enjoying the beach... More

The Hotel is modest and clean. The staff are really friendly and the kids club is great. The pools, service and activities around the pool were great. Our only dissapointment was really the kiddie centre. There were two kiddies rides that worked and nothing really for the older kids. I would recommend the hotel.

It's early evening when we arrive. We are warmly welcomed by the reception and after completing the necessary forms we are equipped with our room key. However we're informed the lift is not working so we will need to carry our cases up two stories. Being energetic this is no problem. The corridors are a little old and its with... More

To be fair, this is not my kind of place. I do not understand why people would want to sit and watch the pool when there is an ocean right across the wall. There is a deck overlooking the ocean sure. Bar service was generally pretty bad. Room was good. WHAT IS WITH THAT BRAAI? there is no real braai,... More

I reserved an apartment for four persons, it was impossible to stay in such a mini tiny room! The "second room" was just so ugly that we were planning going away. Fortunately we discover that the flat next door was free, so we decided to stay at La Montagne, our friends coming from Belgium were happy, the view is marvelous... More

I've been coming to this hotel for 20 years and it's showing its age. Desperately in need of upgrading and renovation. Rooms and facilities in terrible condition. Some facilities not even open. Has been that was since my last visit on 2004 before this one. Looks like they've lost interest. Would stay away.

We were booked into a studio, unit 501. This studio was tiny, no easy chairs. Very small dinning table with two chairs. comfortable queen size bed. Narrow patio overlooking the swimming pool deck. Because of the white walls and the narrow patio it was uncomfortable to sit on the wrought iron chairs (no cushion) as the sun glare was very... More

Contrary to a few reviews below this one, my partner and I really enjoyed our stay at La Montagne. Although it is not the most "romantic" hotel on the south coast, we had everything we needed to enjoy our little couples getaway. Firstly, our room was very clean. The bedding was clean, new-looking and spotless. The rest of the room... More
