We had a time share exchange here in Feb 2015 and it was the by far the worse place we have ever stayed anywhere in the world. The apartment was very small and most uncomfortable. The one patio chair was broken as was the umbrella. In the bathroom the soap dish was broken, tiles cracked, broken and moulding and so... More

We have stayed at this resort. It's really a beautiful place, very neat and modern and just a short distance from the most beautiful beach. The reception personel are friendly and welcoming, but....the internet reception is aweful. Our unit's double bed's mattress was really very uncomfortable. The spare bedroom's single beds are way more comfortable. Otherwise, no complaints and can... More

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.
