We have visited or stayed at Pine Lake Marina regularly over many years. Sadly it's become a bit run-down and is not the same, specially since the demise of the Watneys Restaurant, and we now stay elsewhere. There is a little snack bar but it's not a patch on Watneys. One of the things we always go back for is... More

Rooms are not serviced. Towels get changed every fourth day and linen every 7th. Done more regularly with a charge. Toilet paper and soap are in room on arrival, if you require more you must buy your own. Tables round pool not cleared or cleaned regularly. At the rates one is paying you expect more. Venue has potential but managed... More

We are from Grahamstown and stayed there in October 2014 (school holidays) and from the time we arrived to the time we left we could find no fault with the resort. Everyone was friendly, lots of free things to do, we were never bored. Not sure what some people meant by the resort was over run by the locals because... More

Before our holiday started we were SOOO excited to go to Pine Lake. Their website looks so nice and email flyers we received looked awesome we couldn't wait to go! What a dissapointment when we got there :-( We were traveling with our 11month old baby and visited resorts and hotels that advertised they had heated swimming pools. Coming from... More

We had a most enjoyable stay at Pine Lake Marina. The family unit W10 was neat and comfortable, close to the waterfront from where we could go on the lagoon with pedalos, kayaks and even motorboats. Loads of other entertainment like mini golf, table tennis, tennis, pool etc are free to use. Will definitely return for another vacation.

Pine Lake is a wonderful peaceful resort but my last experience was terrible! We enjoyed the facilities but our chalet wasn’t up to standard. I have visited Pine Lake before. The first time we went there was with my parents. We stayed at the "Waterfront Cabanas". Last week my husband and I went there again but this time staying at... More

I booked a romantic break at Pine Lake Marine for hubbie and myself requesting a private unit. On arrival at reception we were presented with a long inventory check list that we had to go through at the chalet. This is the first time I have ever had to do this. Go to the chalet and count each and every... More

Pine Lake is pleasant, the rooms are well appointed and the setting is pretty. We checked in late at about 19.00 and it went smoothly. However the next morning when I went back to reception to report problems with the stove and the TV, we were required to pay a R500.00 breakage deposit and handed an inventory which we were... More

Dear Syphon_za, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your experience at Pine Lake Marina. We are glad that for the most part you had a very good experience at the resort.

For what we were looking for it was perfect; a place to use as a base to travel the Garden route, activities for the kids and a place to have drinks in the evening. If you're looking for a top end resort this is not it, but if you're looking for a solid family resort that's clean and have loads... More
