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

The resort is old, the lifts has an awful smell. The rooms is in serious need of a revamp. The bathroom are a disaster. The staff was helpful and friendly.

Excellent location but the rooms are terrible, towels old, noise levels terrible, the patio doors cant lock, oil smell at night unbearable in room. Very pricey for what you get, left after the second night and booked into Zimbali Resort Hotel at the same nightly rate and much cleaner and better rooms and service. Reception staff of a very low...

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This alleged resort is "outdated" on every level, to say the least.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
