A friend and I spent 2 nights here. Firstly, if you don't dive, golf or fish, there is absolutely nothing to do in Umkomaas. Not the establishment's fault we made a bad choice. A special vegetarian dinner prepared for us the first night was delicious. Breakfast, however, was very uninspired. A sort of apple, mostly fruit salad, and muffins so... More

Stayed one night. Very low cost. Smallish rooms but still great value. Incredibly nice lady who runs the place. I'd have no hesitation in recommending it. Great breakfast. Ukomaas itself is quiet but the guest house is fine.

The place was clean. Towels fresh. It was quite, which is what we were looking for. Close to the beach. Secluded. The breakfast needs an improvement and more choice (especially with eggs e.g scrambled & omelette) The juice jugs need to have lids, to avoid insects falling in. Overall it was okay.

Ocean Park Guest House is a comfortable and home-like guest house. For us being a group of scuba divers, the lodge was conveniently located 2 blocks away from all the major Umkomaas scuba dive centers. The rooms are neat and comfortable - little bar fridge nicely stocked with refreshments. The lodge has a very nice braai area and lapa which... More
