We visit Badplaas for 30years now in camping facilities. And my husband for over 40years now. Super safe for the kids, while the parents relax. My kids grew up next to your swimming pools. Service at take away shop next to Milky Lane has been unfriendly past 2 years but that will not influence our love for Badplaas.

We spend a night camping at Badplaas. It a Tuesday night and the camp site / resort was not very busy, however from about 23h00 to 00h00 vehicles started arriving and although they were booked into huts they drove through the campsite with their lights on bright. There was no need for them to travel to the huts via the... More

After reading most of the reviews here I almost feel that I can sum it up as follows: If you have been to Badplaas before, you enjoy it because you had good memories. Those of us who only recently visited find it lacking a lot in the service department. We had a nice stay and the accommodation was great but... More

I know that there are rules that need to be followed... But what counts for one counts for all!! Being told our music is too loud. And being forced to switch it off completely and then hearing other people going on with even louder music for hours and nothing gets done. Extremely annoyed, will think twice before coming here again!!

My colleague and I was on official SANDF business in the Oshoek border area on 18/01/2015 and I decided that we stay over in a centralized area before leaving for Nelspruit. We were friendly welcomed and quickly helped by reception and I booked in at unit 4. The accommodation was neat and tidy, the patio area semi-private for a nice... More

I often visit Aventura Badplaas for a weekend getaway. The setting is beautiful with plentiful amenities. The chalets have recently been refurbished and slightly better specked. Comparing to other international brands Aventura falls way behind. Staff lack hospitality skills. One does not feel welcome or special at most times. A glaring lack of hospitality and service excellence is noted. Food... More

Before you think of going to Badplaas please phone and ask if there is running water before you are making a booking. Then you must confirm your booking and hopefully they have listen,seems as the staff at reception is not trained as they should have.This is now our 4th visit to the camping site and every time the resort staff...

Was so promising. Beatiful camp site, clean bathrooms and friendly staff but the Dayvisitors are kiling the place. The campsite is also popular among residents from towns such as Secunda and Brakpan. Loud music all day long and a lot of drunk loud youngsters until late at night. Soooo disappointed as we truly enjoyed the setting.

It was a terrible waste off money. Unfriendly people, bad service, terrible food, injuries inflicted by spa personel with treatments.... will never visit again. The chalets were great and if all the resort activities and facilities good have been of the same standard it would have been a great experience. But sadly this was not tje case

We enjoyed four wonderful days at this resort. The one bedroom chalets are neat and equipped with almost everything you would expect from a self catering resort. The indoor hydro is simply awesome. It's great to sit back and relax in the warm water. There's is also a large naturally heated outdoor pool were we spent much of our time.... More
