We had a great time at moon glow. The owner are very friendly and were very helpful with a problem which was caused by our travel agency. The rooms are nice and clean. The view from the balcony is great.

Excellent amenities and attention to detail. Great service with warm and friendly feeling of a home away from home. The view of the sunrise during breakfast each day was unbelievable. Thank you Leslie and Gilling!

It was a beautiful place to stay in overlooking the ocean, however, the breakfast was very impersonal, you had to join others at a table that you dont know. maybe have seprate tables for people taht want their own space in the mornings. Also, my partner was freaked out but all the clowns around the house, i didnt really notice... More

I am sorry that you did not have a good quality sleep. We get many compliments throughout our group of lodges and camps for the comfortable beds which are of the same standard as at Moonglow. It is a pity that you did not request a separate table as we would gladly have arranged one for you. So many of... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of our trip and what a wonderful place to recover from our 38 hours in transit! Of course the view is amazing and we were happy to just sit on the balcony and soak it up, but the real pleasure was the warmth and welcome of the hosts. Gillian, thank you so... More

Not the easiest place to find, but if you follow the well placed signs and wind your way up the hill, suddenly you find yourself with a lovely view and a cozy room. I had a room without a balcony, but still a bit of an ocean view. But the big balconies on both floors were available and I enjoyed... More

We spent 2 nights at Moonglow in February 2015 as part of a pre-wedding (not mine) celebration. While most of the other wedding guests opted to stay in Constantia, good friends told us about what a gem Moonglow was. Living in landlocked Pretoria, we chose Moonglow with our friends. Perched up high on a hill overlooking the water, Moonglow's setting... More

Staying a week at the moon glow was just a wonderful experience. The facility, the Host, the location, everything was tip top.
