Perfect family get away, accommodation basic but good - food and staff excellent. Did lots of walks and exploring. Will miss our morning runs to Breezy point. Roads need more signage. We will definitely be back.

Our only complaint were the double room with interleading hollow core door to another guest, in our case a guest that had a baby!!! (We are in our late 50's) The facility other than that was very relaxing, albeit rustic. A small refrigerator in the rooms would make a huge difference as well.

It's a beautiful place to stay! Very friendly staff. The directions to The Haven is not clearly marked on the roads and we got terribly lost. On booking please supply directions. Please consider fans or airconaircon in the rooms as it is extremely hot. We will definitely be visiting again!

Of the numerous resorts we stayed at this was by far the most basic. The hotel really needs a facelift. The resort is remote and the road markings coming up the coast from Willowvale are non existent.

We had a very nice stay. The hotel has a very good cuisine,it's a paradise for children, the nature reserve is wonderful and so would be the beaches around, if not for the uncivil to of neighbouring communities (seebelow). I have, however, some recommendations: 1. It should be better signaled. A be the ma agent could invest in some signposts... More
