Very nicely situated, the 3 Rondavels are within walking distance inside the resort. Chalets clean and well maintained. Cheaper chalets have no living, only a table in the open plan kitchen (TV in bedroom). Restaurant on site poor quality, rather do self catering, view from deck stunning, so cocktails recommended ;-) Horse riding, swimming pool, playground with trampoline all well... More

The hotel is situated at the best point of view. The view of the Blyde cannon natural reserve is fantastic. At the view point, we can see the magnificent views of Three rondawels, Blyde cannon, dam, river.

We didn't stay here but visited for the afternoon to do one of the hiking trails and have lunch in the restaurant. The grounds seem well maintained and all the staff we met very very polite and pleasant. We did the tufa waterfall trail which was really beautiful but not maybe as easy a trail as their brochure would lead... More

We arrived on Friday 10 July 2015 at the resort to be very disappointed with the level of accommodation! Check-in is at 15:00 and we arrived at 16:00. We immediately cancelled our booking, and we demanded a full refund – no reply from Forever yet! Reasons: - The 2 bedroom house did not look at all the same as per... More

My husband and I had our first anniversary at this beautiful resort. Lovely and clean and the staff are great. Peaceful, but I would advise to get a chalet away from the laundry area as the staff are a bit noisy. Other than that, beautiful area and a wonderful escape to nature's beauty. What's really a plus is that within... More

Resort very well maintained with modern decor in the chalets. Staff very helpful and courteous. A very pleasant stay with beautiful walks in pristine veld and forest. Restful and re-invigorating. Forever Resorts has upgraded this resort to 5 star quality

The place is clean and immaculate. The fan in the bathroom was noisy and there was a musky smell in the chalet as though it is cleaned with old cleaning cloth. The warnings about the monkeys are well place and did help. Was shocked that the monkeys could open the door is not locked

Immaculate, well equipped serviced self catering unit, with beautiful views. Very quiet and peaceful. Careful there are monkeys and baboons, so keep windows and doors closed, which is not a problem as the unit is fully air conditioned.
