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.

We stayed at the resort (in a Cabana) for 4 nights, 30Apr-3May. When we opened the Cabana there was a very strange stinking smell in the Cabana. This place is run down, very old. Time and improvements stopped properly 20 plus years ago. OLD FASIONED!!! The kettle does not switch of when it boils, you must pull the plug from... More

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

This place is jewel. it is not often that I get impressed over what I read on the website of the establishment. My review is only for camp sites. I normally get bored after 3 days in a resort but not this place. It has a lot to do for both adults and kids. It is easy reach to other... More

We really had a nice time at Merry Pebbles Resort. The Children enjoyed themselves in the swimming pool etc. It was relaxing and it is not for from all the sites to be seen. We will come again next year!

Our stay at the Merry Pebbles resort was excellent. Everything was clean and way above standard. It was extremely close and convenient to the start of the Long Tom Marathon and even closer to the finish.

I spent 5 nights camping here and used it as my base to visit the sights in the area. The ablutions are clean and serviced throughout the day. The grounds are well kept. And the sound of the Sabie River flowing past is pleasant to fall asleep to at night. What I really liked is the patrolling security 24hours. Will... More

This review relates only to the mtb routes. I rode both the Red and Blue routes. The Red is indeed difficult but manageable by most. It is not technical at all when compared to XC trails, it is the gradients that make it difficult. Take adequate sustenance and water because you can easily get lost and be out for 4,... More

Hi Milton, Thank you for the feedback on the MTB routes, I am terribly disappointed in the perceived service provided at the reception. At Merry Pebbles we only collect money on behalf of KLF on who's property the routes are situated, as well as copying the maps they provide. I will most certainly point out the short comings to the... More
