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.

I love this resort for the reason that it is super chilled out. The chalets has been revamped and the place looks great overall. Great views over the mountains. Great braai area. Just be aware of the baboons and monkey. They can get pesky.

We stayed three nights and left one night early for lack of ways to entertain our 6 and 8 year old girls. The chalet was clean and ok in terms of size but with no view of the canyon. This was a shame as the place was virtually deserted and many chalets with great views seemed empty. We took two... More

There have been some negative reviews of the chalets at Blydepoort, but our experience was really pleasant. We originally wanted a six sleeper but these were all booked, so we got two adjoining chalets that proved perfect. They were spotlessly clean and well appointed and spacious. Some of the equipment (toasters and microwaves) were a little tired but perfectly serviceable.... More

As some of stated, the chalets are a little old and tired. They need new furnishings or something to help modernize the inside but basically I was there only long enough to sleep anyway, so overall it was a comfortable base while there to visit the canyon, the pot holes and the surrounding area. I would stay here again.

I love blyde. Calm and relaxed chalets are recently upgraded and is truely top notch. The maintenance guy Thys is always willing to help with extra braais of even fite wood. We also camped at blyde in the past. Ablutions is renovated and very clean. Shop is expensive. Take your own veg and fruit and booze Can recommend!

We camped at the resort in January. The camp sites are average, but a little too on top of each other. The ablution blocks were very good and clean. Do not feed the monkeys... We enjoyed the tufa waterfall hike, but I suggest only going if the weather will definitely be clear; mist covers many views when it's overcast.. The... More

We stayed in a 3 star chalet which was OK, but not quite what we hoped for. There is no lounge area in the 3 star chalets, it has two bedrooms, bathroom and a kitchen with a 4 seater table. The TV is located in the main bedroom. The outside space around the braai area is great with a table... More

This resort is well situated if you are planning to stop over after, or before, visiting the Blyde River canyon. The chalets are good, the one i stayed in, had a fridge, small kitchen, microwave and twin beds with a lovely view of the Three Rondavels. It was standard, no luxury, but well appointed and food in the restaurant was... More
