It's a small resort with about 30-35 stone chalets situated by a dam. The excess road to the resort is very poor, and the facilities are quite limited: no internet access (only at Reception), coffee machine, washing machine or dishwasher (although you will get maid service every day). I assume the chalets are good during the hot summer but they... More

We come here regularly as a family. There is plenty to do for the kids and a safe environment to relax and unwind. The chalets all have a wonderful view over the lake and are cleaned daily. There are no power boats so apart from a splash of a paddle boat or some geese it is totally peaceful.

Pine Lake Resort was beautiful, but also offered proximity to the panorama drive and access to Kruger National Park. The blend of both made an excellent vacation. Only unexpected drawback was spotty internet service that was only at the reception area.

Pine Lake Resort is well maintained and has a lovely setting by a lake. Our unit had a lot of steps, which wasn't a real problem for us, but if you are handicapped or have arthritis be sure to ask for a handicapped unit. The road coming in is a bit rough, but the municipality has to fix it and... More

Advertised as sleeping 6 but no mention of the fact that the 3rd bedroom was 3 flights of stairs at the top of the cabin and without a loo, or shower or basin. Even if a "kids" bedroom, bad planning. Ok if 1st bedroom downstairs

We went to Nelspruit to be near the Kruger Park and travel around the area. The hotel is close to the airport, about ten minutes away from the town of White River and five minutes from a shopping center whith good restaurants. The house has all any family needs for a good vacation, even a terrace with grill. Our house... More

This resort is very well maintained and offers a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. Our children enjoyed the Mini Golf and rowing the lake tremendously. Well situated to visit other scenic points in the Sabie and Hazyview areas.

After 24 years I continue to be impressed with the excellent standards maintained in terms of hospitality, maintenance and overall control. The dam/lake provides for a most relaxing atmosphere and the gardens are a sight to behold. The location is in close proximity to some worthwhile tourist attractions such as the Kruger Game Reserve.
