Merry Pebbles is almost our annual pilgramage, the amenities are such good, clean fun, hot pool the best, tennis courts well maintained and the river was fuller this year making for a smoother tube experience. Shop & office staff professional, cleaning staff - we hope are a work in progress. A great stay with family & friends, we'll be back... More

Merry Pebbles is the most relaxing place between the mountain. I could relax while the kids where enjoying themselves with all the multiple activities. The river that runs through gives you that tranquillity that an exhausted body and mind needs

Unit No. 1, which indicates 4 rooms sleeping 8 adults. the 4th room adjacent to the scullery needs to have a door closing off the scullery for privacy. That shower is so tiny consider making it bigger.

Great Family weekend away. The Drakensberg units are very cute and cosy, an absolute adventure for our kids! Scenery is fantastic and although it rained quite a bit on the weekend, the kids were still happy and adequately entertained.

We booked Chalet 1 and was surprised by the space. The rooms were perfect and enjoyed the fact that we had a full kitchen for our use. The Chalet was tidy and clean and well worth the money spent. Good value for money that will take me back there.

We stay for a weekend, we found the facilities very clean, the staff helpful and friendly, the pools fun and the restaurant very delightful. Rooms were cleaned daily which was wonderful. Can't wait to go again.

This spot is great..the sites area clean an beautiful river right before you. Ablutions are immaculate and clean...staff is quiet and get on with their work. Pool and heated pool great. Put putt and little tricycles for kids..good idea! Only thing I found sad was the cold and unfriendly management...

Stayed there over December 2013 holiday. Normally over-protective parent, but people and setup such that kids were left to cycle inside the resort on their own. Cabin located between campers, giving one a best-of-both-worlds scenario (luxury of cabin, atmosphere of camping). It was quiet, even during new years eve, with not a single person causing making a lot of noise.... More

On such short notice I was accommodated by the friendly and helpful staff at your resort. It was clean, warm and homey. I would definitely recommend you resort to other people, and visit again soon.:)

The Chalet was spacious but the beds, crockery and cutlery needs to be updated. The shower's water pressure is very weak. Almost not possible to shower. The resort itself was very tidy and neat and is great for kids. The childrens play area can be updated i.e. jungle gyms etc.
