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

This resort has been one of our favorite holiday resorts for many years now. My wife and I recently took a 4 day midweek break, and once again it met our expectations. The check in process was fast and smooth, and our one bedroom self catering chalet was clean, tidy and well equipped. After unpacking, we took a early evening... More

On a trip from Durban to KNP, Badplaas makes a convenient night stopover to break the long journey. The resort has a STRICT 3pm check-in policy and even if the rooms might be ready you can only check-in after 3, but a wristband allows you into the resort and facilities until you can collect your key after 3pm.

The resort is looking run down, especially the Hydro. The building is old and needs to be upgraded. The outside pools are good, but there is no personality in the place. Funny - the place is cold but the water warm.

We stayed at Badplaas for two nights on our way from Johannesburg, SA to Manzini, Swaziland. We stayed in a rondavel, which was elegant and comfortable. We enjoyed the pool and the rinkhals water area. We took a hike in the game park, and were hoping to go on a game drive, but the vehicle was broken for the duration... More
