Stayed here for a week. The ladies in reception were very nice and helpful. However you have to enquire about each unit before booking. All the units are not the same. Some only have 2 showers. Some have 1. So be prepared. It's right opposite Myoli Beach. Nice and peaceful place. We also had a small problem with the cleaning... More

Amazing location, barely 50m from the beautiful Myoli beach. Apartment was bright and spacious, and cleaned daily (including towel replacement and braai cleaning). Onsite pool and games room helps keep the kids busy. Lots of things to do in Sedgefield/George/Knysna/Plett/Oudshoorn, and it was a very central location for Garden Route activities. A few additional comments: - The sea at Myoli... More

Good clean place and a joy to stay. So close to the beach with a pool onsite. Staff very friendly. The only downside is the amount of thorns on the grass. This is really bad for the kids that want to run around. Not sure as to why they make a plan with it. Would visit them in future again!

The staff were friendly and the unit was serviced daily! This really added to the holiday vibe. Close to one of the most amazing beaches, we had a wonderful holiday. The beach restaurant across the road with its cocktails and pizza was great. The lodge has a pool and games area for the kids. The kitchen is well stocked and... More

After reading the reviews, I had to see for myself! From the moment I contacted the friendly staff who really went out of their way to accommodate us to the immaculate cleanliness of the unit with crisp linnen, I was very impressed. We booked online as a travel package and to say the least, we got far more than we... More

The beach was one of the most amazing beaches I'd ever been to and we loved the restaurant on the beach. The resort was lovely, we were not happy with the standard of cleanliness though. The tea towels were smelly and looked like they had not been washed in weeks. We had dirt in the bathroom bin and the linen... More

This resort is fantastic, clean, has everything you could possible need, the staff incredibly accommodating. Our room was quiet and per request to the staff - sitated in a very peaceful area of the resort.

We stayed at Shearwater on Sea for just under a week. The location is great as it's close to the beach - which is one of the most outstanding beaches I've ever seen. The beach bar is great too. The accommodation itself was great, all you could need. However, we had to wait for someone to arrive at reception, we... More

what lovely place! Just a pity it is not inspected by management on a daily basis after daily service has been done. I had to ask the cleaners daily to clean certain areas. They just clean on the surface where noticeable. Also had no bath. I had to sweep the deck myself every day. The braai was cleaned ... but... More
