We stayed at the leisure lodge for 2 days in Jan'15 . Our room was facing the pool area and therefore quite noisy as the door and windows of that room are not that sound proof at all. Room furnishing was a little old fashioned but well-kept. Breakfast was outstanding, if you get the chance, you should eat out on... More

We enjoyed our 4 nights here. Staff welcoming, very helpful with booking excursions and friendly. Meals were exceptionally good although we would have preferred more variety with the evening meal. Wonderful location and views. We also used the lodges canoes and bikes which was fun. Shower leaked but that seems to be a universal problem!

We looked for a nice and fancy place near the shore. All expectations over met! This place rocks. Cool staff, awesome meals, from breakfast to dinner, a stunning location and amazing rooms. Luxurious!

We stayed mostly in 5* hotels, but also stayed in 4 or even 3* hotels/lodges/B+B on our travels. The Leisure Isle Lodge enjoys a great position overlooking the lagoon, which is stunning. However, we feel that it is quite pricey compared to with what we have experienced on our travels through the Cape. The room was okay, but not exceptional,... More

It has been our second stay at the lodge within a year. Again we have been impressed by the high level of hospitality. Very attentive staff, nice location, deluxe suite on the upper floor with fantastic view at the lagoon. The cuisine is excellent as well, don't miss a candlelight diner. The Management will assist you in planning all your... More

We came for business in the area and could not help forget about the work when we were at the lodge. We were welcomed by Chris, who became our porter, waiter, valet, and friend. We stayed in the Penthouse Suite and we were blown away by the details put into each room. We could not help high five each other... More

Stayed for three nights in January 2015 on a Garden Route trip. The Island is stunning, with great paddling opportunities off the beach in the lagoon. Few facilities within walking distance apart from the beach and a small cafe - you need a car. The staff are very friendly and helpful in offering suggestions for how to spend your days,... More
