“Hidden gem of the north coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

This golf estate has an understated old world charm. It is so peaceful yet has enough activities to keep anyone entertained. A private 2km beach, tennis and squash courts, golf, swimming pools, nature trails will keep everyone in the family occupied. The golf course is rated in the top 20 in SA. A really peaceful getaway!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Great location with superb view. Beautiful and spacious rooms but not well appointed - they had aircon but no fridge and some had no tv. Some of the bathrooms need to be re-done - they seemed quite old - and the water was brown. The golf course is amazing, extremely well cared for, and we loved one of the beaches. But the pool wasn't great considering how many people were around wanting to use it.

The biggest problem was the service - the food was good, especially the curries! But the time we had to wait to be served, the way we were welcomed and the staff's attitude towards service verged on the ridiculous.
We felt quite sorry for them as it seemed they were undersytaffed - but it seemed it had more to do with disorganisation, a lack of coordination and a terrible lack of teamwork - with seemingly no person being willing to support or communicate efficiently with their colleagues. At one point our food was brought and we had to wait for ages for knives and forks! Eventually we had to go find some ourselves!
Many of the staff were friendly and seemed to be trying hard - others were completely disinterested - and any request posed to them seemed to be an inconvenience...
Something is definitely awry with how the staff are being managed or trained, which is a pity for those who are trying their best.

Nonetheless we still enjoyed ourselves - but if we were to go back we'd try harder to find a self catering unit to rent rather than stay at the lodge.
