We had a 1 bedroom self catering chalet and it was fine although to adjust the A/C, we had to stand on the bed to reach the unit. Bathroom nice, variable water pressure. Kitchen had enough equipment for the food we brought. There are baboons so be sure to lock the doors and keep the windows closed as advised. Nice... More

We camped here for one night so didn't use all of the facilities, but it was professionally managed and well maintained. The washrooms were very clean. We did go on a couple of hikes and the scenery was spectacular. We could definitely have spent more time.

Location is perfect to relax and unwind. For families it's perfect because ample facilities to keep kids busy. The views of the canyon are sublime. The hiking trails are super awesome but do take heed that you need reasonable level of fitness and experience. The chalet are tad bit small but do have everything you require. Tennis courts are nice... More

Stayed here for three nights and it was a good place to stay for our traveling plans, didn't stay so much at the resort during day time. The food was ok with good service but not extra ordinary, cleaning ok but didn't fill up our coffee for during the stay. Missed WiFi in the rooms, was available at the restaurant.

We stayed for 1 night here, with our rooftop tent. It was fine. The showers and WC for the men were a lot cleaner then for the ladies. The dinner we had in the restaurant was OK as well. The chicken piri piri was nice. The steak was fine, nothing special. The waiter was very nice though. But he couldn't... More

The resort is perfectly situation for great views and hiking. I would recommend staying at least two nights if you wish to do any hiking in the area. The property is very well maintained and the chalets are rustic but very nice. I would recommend one of the chalets on the upper road and at the very end so you... More

We spent only one night here but it was restful, with a beautiful view over the 3 Rondavels. Walked up to get a spectacular view. The food at the restaurant was fine. Room was clean and spacious. Loved the fog which rolled in the next morning.

The service at reception was great, What I liked least is that snake at the entrance of the reception. The linen was not particularly hair free, but the bathrooms was so big and amazing. Enjoyed the walk to the view of the three rondavels.

Thank you for your review, feedback from our Guests is very important to us, it helps us to improve our service offering. There is no need to be afraid of "Monty" the snake at reception, he is perfectly safe behind the glass:) The main reason for the snake collection at the reception is to educate the children visiting our resort....

A little disappointing. The Chalet was dark and you have to keep doors locked because of the Baboons - was woken in the early hours with one trying to open the door! Little things like the knob of a shower door coming off in your hand don't help the general effect of a place run down. There is no lounge... More

We booked through Groupon and had a 3 star chalet.All acceptable except the noise of the other occupants, which management did nothing about.We went there to rest and enjoy nature.Loud music,drunk people in the shop was not part of what we had in mind.Will definitely NOT go there again.
