“Cold”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

It was very clean but very cold. Fantastic for kids. The music was brilliant. Could spend the whole day relaxing by the wave pool.

“Great as always”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

The Valley of the waves is always fun in season. We were there over skouspel and had a great time with Checkers providing free drinks and boerewors and the singers a show on the beach! Definitely recommended!

“Crowded Valley!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We stayed in the Palace for 2 days and went there both. Week days were packed with school kids.
Very good, there is an alarm that sounds to warn that big waves are coming.
Go early to get a place in the shadow, and leave early to avoid the crowds...

“Over-rated - don't make the trip just for this”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

This was quite ordinary. I expected to see continuous wave pools and other attractions but it was one big pool with waves every few minutes. The slides were ok. I spent half an hour there and it was more than enough...not worth the drive really unless you fancy a dip after a good safari drive.
