We stayed over at Wavecrest that was one of the hotels we stop every day during our 100km trail run along the wild coast, breathtaking place, would love to take my family there soon... Only critic is their bathrooms due for upgrade, besides the bathrooms it's the nicest hotel on wild coast beaches

What an amazing location definitely worth the drive. The hotel is perfectly located with great views over the beach and up the estuary. I was lucking enough to stay in one of the front rondavels, which was very comfortable and clean. The food was great and we especially enjoyed the homemade bread. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming.... More

It was my first time visiting Wavecrest and I was smitten the moment I drove through their gates. The staff go out of their way in accommodating your every need. The food is great. Make sure you're there for their seafood buffet. Activities are endless. Bird watching, surfing, diving, kayaking, etc etc. All a stone throw away from your comfortable... More

Wonderful views across both the mangrove lined lagoon and the Indian Ocean. Very friendly staff and very comfortable and clean rooms. Dinner and breakfast were both superb. Birdlife excellent and 180 degree sea views from bedrooms.

What a lovely place. Been going to Wavecrest since I was a child. Was a pleasure having a bike trip going via Wavecrest in September 2014. Wind was pumping weather was typical angry Transkei. Despite having separate group of clients having a rather fancy book launch in the hotel with us rowdy 13 plus bikers the staff handled extremely well.... More

This hotel has the most amazing setting. Unbeatable! The accommodation is being upgraded so it is likely to get better and better. If you are looking for a good family holiday away from it all you could do worse than consider Wavecrest as an option.

We arrived at Wavecrest late afternoon without a reservation. We received a hearty and friendly welcome at reception from Bully. She went out of her way to accommodate us and made us comfortable. The hotel has probably one of the most beautiful settings possible. We went on a boat cruise with Shaun who knows everything [and I mean everything] about... More

I stayed here for one night as part of a running weekend and had a lovely time. The views over the river are really beautiful and I had a fantastic massage at the little spa - much needed after a long, physical day! Food was wholesome and tasty and service was good. The only downside was that the rooms could... More
