The welcoming and checking in was very professional. The rooms are spacious and very well maintained. An exclusive leisure and holiday place. Not far from Gateway shopping mall and Durban. The viewing is fantastic. Very much child friendly and safe. Eating out is very relaxable

Would love to bring her back when she is older as kids love this place. Numerous activities... More

Idea resort for children but lack facilities in the room to cook. They have a braai facitily only twice a week which means if you don't want to leave the resort you need to either eat at Spur or café on site.

Friendly service, Clean accomodation. Had a problem of second hand cigarette smoke coming through aircon at times. Noticed this 2 years ago when I was there. Entertainment at Coco's horrible. I think most of the entertainers were close to 75 years old. Apart from this very pleasant
