“Drakensberg Sun Timeshare Feb 2014”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

As usual, lovely food, great atmosphere, helpful and friendly staff. Had a fantastic braai once the rainy weather had stopped towards the end of our holiday out on the grass in front of the hotel whilst watching the clouds build up over Champagne Peak in the distance! lovely to wake up in the morning and sit outside with a mug of coffee and watch the mist and clouds drift past the peak.

The hotel is known for its cuisine, and the choice is wide.

Lovely pool area with drinks or food to be ordered from the bar/kitchen at the pools edge.

We had a ground floor 2 bedroom apartment opening onto the lawn. By far the best option if you can get hold of it.

Room Tip: Watch out for monkeys. keep doors and windows closed if you are out. Otherwise they will have a part...

If you are in the mood for 7 days of relaxation and peace and quite, this is the resort to go to. There are some goods walking trails at the resort for everyone, also a beautiful lake for a bit of canoeing. Horse rides are also a good way to pass the time by. There is a golf course just around the corner from the resort. the rooms are very decent, we had a self catering one which was perfect for 4 people, as if you are 6 the 2 people have to sleep in the lounge on the couch that doesn't turn into a sleeper couch. the only downside is that there is no braai areas at the room or outside on the balcony, there is a communal braai area that is a little walk away.

We stayed at this resort as the second half of our honeymoon and it was amazing! We were in the timeshare resort which is directly linked to the main hotel. The staff are friendly, food is great and the resort itself has more than enough to keep everyone of all ages busy!

We had a wonderful and relaxing stay. The views are spectacular and the service excellent. There is so much to do if you want to be active and yet so peaceful if relaxing is your goal. Highly recommended!

The best place to relax and appreciate the tranquility of nature. The children enjoyed themselves tremendously as they explored all the activities on offere, e.g. swimming, various games, interaction and playing with the other children. I also enjoyed the hiking trails. My wife loved the quietness and being able to read and lazy the days away.

Fantastic weekend spent at Drak Sun. I just wish time didn't go by so quickly. The rooms are spotless and now that they have been upgraded they are awesoe. There are so many activities to do that you lose track of time. Very friendly and helpful staff.
