The scenery is fantastic, the gardens are gorgeous and very well maintained, the attractions for kids are exciting and can keep them busy all day long leaving the parents some time for themselves. The spa is excellent with professional staff and excellent products, even though the cubicles could gain from more effective isolation from the noise enabling customers to relax... More

The resort is clean very manicured and safe. We had a private condo. We strolled the grounds enjoyed the lush tropical foliage. Had some drinks in the bar, The dinning is not that great I recommend getting your own food and grilling in the room

This is a great resort for both young and old. It's also great on the pocket as they have different types of accommodation from camping, chalets and hotel to choose from. Once there, if you are not on the self catering option, there plenty of dining options and every is quite affordable with drink going from as little as R10... More

We are currently in the 6 sleeper Chalets which are amazing, clean and we'll. Equipped. 3 bedrooms with full bathroom and an extra separate toilet. Lovely patio with BBQ. Gardens are well kept. Pools are clean. Do think they need to invest in some shade net over the outdoor pools. Hydro has not changed in 20 yrs this needs an... More

We had a relaxing and revitalising stay with our children in the selfcatering chalets. The water slides were enjoyed tremendously by the children In particular the hot pools were of significant benefit to my achy joints and it was a worthwhile stay.we plan to return

My family and I visited the Resort and were so impressed with the entire place. From the minute we checked in, everything was done professionally. The property is very well organised and super well kept. Our chalet (161) was immaculately set up. We felt so at home here. The polite staff on the property was visible. The security and safety...

We arrived on Friday. The lady that was at reception was extremely rude and absolutely un-professional. The resort should really consider employing capable people to meet international standards. The resort & chalets are excellent but a pathetic start to a weekend we looked forward to. First impression is very important.
