Our holiday got off to an amazing start when we were upgraded from a rondavel to one of the self catering chalets. The rondavels looked nice but the chalets (think house rather than chalet) were stunning and the kitchens were the best equipped I've ever seen for self catering accommodation, although take all food with you if self catering as there is nothing available nearby.
We ate all meals in the restaurant as breakfast and supper were included in our package and we paid extra for lunch. Every meal was delicious and the kids' options were actually real food rather than 'nuggets & chips'.
We did a fantastic hike through the National Park which was just breathtaking and easy to find.
My children were too young for any of the pony riding trips, but (without me even asking for it) the staff arranged for 2 horses to be brought down and my children were led on a 20 min walk up the hill. We were charged nothing for this. This is an example of the way the staff treated us at all times, they were attentive, polite and went out of their way to help in any way they could. And that was every member of staff; cleaners, security, reception, bar staff, just everyone.
We also couldn't believe our bill at the end. I thought we'd got a total bargain package and assumed we'd be stung for drinks and extras, but it was very, very reasonable.
Really can't recommend it highly enough.
