This was our 3rd stay at A1 in "Song of the Sea". Not once disappointed and would stay there again and again when visiting Jbay. The view, stunning! The atmosphere amazing. And load shedding that evening made the place even more cozy and memorable! Thank you Sharon! Job very well done 👍*****

We stayed one night en route to Kruger. It was excellent. Friendly staff, clean rooms connecting for our kids and a breakfast choice to die for. We were able to sit out on the porch and drink wine while watching the ocean moonlight knowing the kids were safe and secure. Also got to use the pool next door and trampoline... More
