Best family holiday in SA. Rooms are clean, staff are friendly and the food is 5 star quality. The spa is amazing and one of the best in SA. Great entertainment for the kids. Will certainly go back again.

The kids appreciated this location very much. Despite the language barrier (Kids only speak french) and the rain, they enjoyed a great moment with the animation staff. The staff does its best to respond to any of your inquiries. My only "Room for improvement" is for staff at the dining area to be more cheerful, more pro-active and service oriented.

Overall I enjoyed my stay at Umngazi. Just two things were a bit disappointing. Our fire wood for the fire place was damp and would not burn. At green door cellar we were double booked, which was a bit embarrassing. They also got our pre-ordered food from the menu mixed up with someone else's. The main course was supposed to... More
