Beautiful setting with lots of fun activities for all ages. The pricing is a bit high per night but the amount of activities and facilities available makes up for the price (in my opinion). Its perfect for family getaways... WE will be returning this year!

The facilities at the resort are good for families with lots of activities indoor and outdoor. The accommodation however is truly outdated. we got our room and it was really stuffy with a moldy smell. the rooms itself are dusty and not cleaned properly. Place us overpriced and not what we expected.

This accommodation was a total waste of our time and money. For the rate charged, you would expect a 5 star accommodation and service. We have been to far better places where the rates were reasonable, and the service and accommodation were 5-star. The website boasts very deceiving images and statements – don’t be fooled! We booked in on the... More

We chose this venue for a family reunion and could not have chosen better. It offers very good self-service accommodation and excellent facilities. From squash courts, tennis courts, to a number of water sports. The atmosphere is very relaxed. It is also ideally located, close to a number of popular tourist attractions including Knysna, Wilderness and George. The staff are... More

Went with a friend of mine and her family for a week on vacation... What an amazing time. Stunning location, serene environment and so much to do. The cottage was well equipped and the beds were Soo comfy. The stunning view of the lake every morning and at sunset really made me realize what special place South Africa has in... More

It has been my 5th time to Pine Lake and I must say, every year it keeps getting better and better. The staff were helpful and friendly and they went out of their way to accommodate us. There were no electricity and water for a whole day, and they handled it with such great skills, that no one even noticed.... More

This is great spot to enjoy skiing and other water sports and you are a few minutes drive from stunning Wilderness beaches and Knysna. Great flea markets at Sedgefield and George every Sat.

Having stayed at Pine Lake Marina a few times over the years when our children were younger, we were used to the beautiful position of the resort on the edge of the Swartvlei lake as well as the stunning natural beauty of the surrounding mountains and woodlands. This was a highlight for us again. In the last three years the... More

Dear Surfari, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We upgraded the putt-putt course a couple of years ago and it also received a fresh coat of paint just before the Xmas holidays. We will have a look at the bathroom Window you mentioned and see if that can be sorted our quickly. Overall the resort is kept... More
