We booked for 1 night & arrived early on the Saturday morning. Thankfully our room was ready but we were dissappointed. We were charged full rate which includes breakfast & dinner. The room (unit 7) smelt of damp. The bed was comfortable but overall the room is dated & so is the bathroom. Accordingly to the new law, the use... More

This was our second visit to Hulala, and it was great. We left Johannesburg early enough to arrive by about 17:30, and it was a good call. The sun was out and the weather was warm when we arrived. We sat by the pool (the water was very warm) while we waited for dinner. Dinner was great, out on the... More

We really hoped to visit but we have been so greatly disappointed. My husband looked on the Valentines tab on Groupon and he called to book for Valentine's weekend. 'Fortunate a reservationist' at Hulala made a provisional booking for him. She sent confirmation of the booking but the price was not the same as on Groupon. We paid Groupon and... More

What a pleasant stay. We had a great room with a view of the lake. we had a very warm welcome as we checked in. All the staff were polite and helpful. The room was clean and had that holiday feel to it. The food...mind-blowing! You really get what you're paying for!! The lake was the best part, we canoed... More

It is very sad that we had to try and get as far away from the Lodge as possible, for us to enjoy our Wedding Anniversary. Our disappointments ranged from: - No responses to emails - Very incorrect prices given for activities - No bookings made after repeated requests - Rude receptionist - Room that smelt of DAMP and MOULD...

This place is perhaps in one of the most beautiful spots in SA. Amazing service, amazing views and the staff goes above and beyond. Diane (the manager on duty) were able to arrange white water rafting for us as an excursion and a spa day for the rest of our party. The food was amazing, especially breakfast, which is one... More

This lodge is somewhat off the beaten track. It is very peaceful here & you have mokeys roaming around everywhere. The accommodation is ok but the bathroom could be improved greatly. Breakfast is quite good. They also have a very cosy bar area which is great.

OK, so here is the bottom line. We went specifically to take the one hour boat ride on the lake formed by the Da Gama dam. The main reception building has very attractive views and U.S. A lovely place to enjoy a coffee or a wine while waiting for the boat ride. The boat was just a simple pontoon boat... More
