The hotel is just over an hour outside of East London. The roads are in good condition and it was an easy drive. Check-in was painless and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We arrived early but there was no issue checking in as the room was ready. The hotel has a very good reputation as a family destination...

Family owned hotel makes you feel very welcome every time to arrive, for us from Johannesburg, quite a long trip. Beautiful see views, 4 course dinners and marvelous breakfasts every day make this a really splendid getaway. Outdoor activities, other than the obvious swimming in the ocean also include long walks, either along the hilly south or sandy beach headed...

Decided on this hotel as a result of all the positive Trip Advisor reviews-we spent five wonderful days at this hotel. beautiful beaches, excellent food, comfortable rooms and best of all right on the beach. I relaxed the minute we arrived there and can definitely see why people return to Morgan bay Hotel over and over again.

Even after 10 consecutive years, this beachfront family hotel never disappoints. This year we had a bar / barbecue at the most picturesque outdoor grill on the planet! Highly recommended for anyone staying there and all superbly organised by the Morgan Bay Hotel team. As always, the other guests you meet at this place are the kind of people you...

Wow, what a wonderful find! I wish we could have stayed more than one night, I can't wait to return. I love everything about this little hotel, a little piece of paradise. Our room was lovely and so carefully prepared. There are so many places to just sit and enjoy what the bay has to offer or take just step...

It would be hard to find a better beachside location than this in South Africa; more like a Caribbean resort with its own virtually private mile long beach. Our room was fabulous with a tremendous beach and sea view and most others we could look into seemed pretty good as well. There is not a lot to do around here...
