    Lovely place to experience... room maintenance needs better attention. Breakfast at Barney’s was disgusting. Flies literally all over the food.... staff was excellent and very helpful especially- Nkosi the shuttle driver. Tshidi and Peggy at reception were great 👍

    There is a swimming pool at the Theme park hotel, but it was green when we were there in September. Also looked like a hangout spot for the staff, with all the hotel chairs standing around there.
