Pleasant resort. Lots for kids to do. Had a family & friends weekend. Stayed in Drakensburg unit. Comfortable enough for 6. Little lacking in kitchen cutlery/knives. Be prepared for deposits on everything though.

We have stayed at Merry Pebbles a lot of times and as always it was a wonderful holiday. The resort is kept very clean and the staff are always pleasant and helpful. There is lots for the kids to keep themselves busy with and it is safe and secure.

We love visiting Merry Pebbles. Especially for the children. Its safe, lots of activities. And they love riding their bikes all over the resort. The previous time we were there the big swimming pool with the slides were hot water. That was much better. Now the hot water was also too cold to swim in especially at night.

Thanks for the feedback P J V its really nice having your family back at Merry Pebbles. Returning guests are our way of measuring our value in service. We only heat the larger pool in December due to the costs in colder months, and with the solar panels and heat pumps the control of temparature in winter is turning out... More
