Merry Pebbles is favourite when it comes to the kids. The accomodation was very comfortable, clean and spacious. The kids could cycle without needing my constant supervision, the terrain was meticulously clean and the pools sparkling. We went mountain biking and my 7 year old boy did the 6km & 12km trail which was well marked. Loved it and will... More

Merry Pebbles is a gem of a place. Fantastic for relaxing, fishing and just doing nothing. Makes a lovely base camp for all tourist trips to sights in Mpumalanga. After a tiring day of touring you look forward to come back to Merry Pebbles to unwind. A lot to do on site as well like fishing, pool, chess, mini golf,... More

After my visit i wrote a review. Trip advisor did not want to publish it as i expressed my real emotions and it was deemed not appropriate, understandable. So i give my rewrite now. Very nice location. Staff rude and non chalant. I can not in good conscious recommend the place, i left not in a good mood

Dear Lordfinsbury, As an owner run establishment this upsets me terribly! Particularly that the staff seemed uncaring and unhelpful. Please be aware that we at all times strive to please our guests. Regards Walter More

We had a wonderful family weekend at Merry Pebbles. Lots to do for the younger ones, and space and beautiful surroundings for the older ones to relax. The resort is well looked after. We will do it again, any time DV.

This is a typical family holiday destination, with a few things to do around Sabie, or just to sit next to the river that flows past the resort. Jump in to the cold pool during the day, then at night into the romantic warm water pool. There is enough for the children to do and during holidays there are plenty... More

It has been our third stay and every time we have peace of mind feeling safe and could get at the shop whatever we forgot. All staff at Reception gate and cleaning staff are so kind and relaxed and it makes for a great start to a lovely time.

Thank you for an awesome weekend. We will definitely be back. Our entire family (children and grandchildren) was accommodated together at 40 & 41. Peaceful, private and allowed our extended family to braai with us that evening.

Stayed here last week on the way through to Kruger. The cabin was fine - kitchen looked a little outdated (possibly due to the colour scheme?) but everything was clean. Complimentary bottle of water in the fridge was a nice touch. Shower and toilet was spotless and, most importantly, I had a great night's sleep in a very comfortable double... More

We were three families all together and we booked two joint chalet, spent 2 nights at Merry Pebbles and had a great time. Nice place for outing in the forest type environment, kids enjoyed playing along side waterfront. Enjoyed a lot.
