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 The cabin was fine - kitchen looked a little outdated (possibly due to the colour scheme?)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 spent 4 nights at Merry Pebbles and had a great time. Its a perfect family getaway with loads to do for young and old. The has a few awesome MTB trails starting alongside the resort and nice flat roads for the kid to ride their bikes. We will definitely be back.

Warm and friendly reception. Rooms need a good clean, and bathroom needs new shower curtains. Otherwise will recommend to all. The host was kind enough to wait for us even though we arrived after the expected time. Food was great. Loved the setting.

Place is very old, needs to be updated, especially the parkhomes on the waterfront. It was infested with ants and spiders,, matresses are very hard and not worth the money per night as the shower and kids bedroom was very tiny! It was very clean and we enoyed the sights around the resort.

Campsites are beautiful, the scenic views of the river and forest above it were just gorgeous. All amenities are spic and span. A great caravan / camping location for families with plenty of activities for kids including a very refreshing hot pool and cold pool with a slide. Well maintained and looked after. We had a Wonderful stay. Thank you
