Service was ok, reasonably friendly staff. We stayed in a chalet and it was comfy except for the hideous pillows. Instead of all the dream catchers hanging on the walls a few decent hooks would come in handy. The location overlooks 2nd Beach (sort of) - it is on a hill so getting to our chalet meant climbing a million stairs. On the other hand the chalet had the best view. The Bar and restaurant were not that clean. If the backpackers put a small effort into thoroughly wiping down the tables and bar counter and not have so much clutter it would be a whole lot nicer. Also the donkey poo in the path was off putting. Also did not like the cat at the table.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Amapondo is Ama-azing. From the moment you walk in and meet their friendly pet donkey (who's a bit of a barfly), you'll know it's an Ama-Awesome spot. Amapondo is nestled on a hill on the verge of a tropical rain forest and only 2 minutes walk from a beautiful beach. Head down to sunbathe or plunge in the clear warm waters of the deep rock pools nearby. The African-themed rooms and deluxe private self-catering cottages all have their own unique design and style. The quirkily designed cottages have incredible views, are really comfortable and come at a price that you'll find hard to match. Turtle Cove has one of the best views on the Wild Coast from its upstairs bubble bath, whilst Crystal House, with its glass frontage, offers classic panoramic ocean views. Whether you want a quiet, relaxing break in your own piece of paradise, a base from which you can explore the natural beauty of the area, an adventure on one of their many tours, close interactions with locals, genuine cultural experiences, yoga lessons, a deep tissue massage, or a thumping all-out party at their buzzy bar, you'll find it at Amapondo. ... more less
