We arrived to find that what was advertised as a lodge, was in fact a backpackers sleepover with lodge prices. We were given the purple room which was at the back of the property and a torch was needed to find our way to it in the dark. We arrived late after a long drive to find that it was self catering and we had to drive in to town to find a KFC just so that we could eat, the second day we went out for the day and told the owner that we would only be back after dark and could he charge our torch for us, he told us he would leave a red torch for us on the bar, and needless to say we had to feel our way back to our room at the back of the property as no torch was left. The room itself was clean but the bathroom was abysmal. Little did we know that Mother Nature would actually be joining us in the bathroom. There was only netting which was not secure to keep the wildlife out but I had to sleep with 1 eye open to make sure mr spider didn't join us in the room as were were in the heart of Banana Trees. Over all we were disappointed sorry to say.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Vuna Valley is a magical place where comfort and nature meet on the banks of the majestic Umtamvuna River, on the border of Kwazulu Natal and Eastern Cape (Transkei). Here you will be forgiven for thinking (and acting) like you're at home. 5 minutes from the quaint town of Port Edward, the Wild Coast Sun casino, Wild waves waterpark and Silver beach, Vuna Valley is far enough to feel like you've escaped, yet close enough to keep your finger on the pulse. Our rooms are simple but clean and comfortable, with airconditioners and private patios with views of the gorge or the gardens. Our large entertainment area is perfect for small rustic functions or romantic dinners for two. We offer self catering, B&B or full catering options. ... more less
