Modern building with excellent service. The building is in the process of being revamped which will make this resort an even more attractive place to go to when on holiday. The view from the resort is brilliant - even more so the higher you are. You will be treated with a daily show of dolphins passing by the resort.

Place has loads of potential. Was not impress with room. Bathroom very old school, tiles chipped and damaged. The room tiles need to be replaced and have a more modern look. Staff are very loud in the mornings which makes it difficult to sleep after 7am. It's as if they want you to get up so they can clean room... More

Excellent. We loved the pool the best. Thank you so much. The room is a little small but it was fine for a few days. The staff were always so friendly. The games room was AMAZING, so clean and well equiped.

The resort itself is gorgeous. Upon arrival I noticed that more/better attention was given to white guests. The rooms are fairly small and the bathroom wasn't up to standard. I didn't even shower because it didn't seem clean enough for me to get into. Really need to upgrade bathrooms. The bedding had a funny smell and I didn't feel comfortable... More

Staff are friendly and welcoming. We stayed in a self-catering room for 4 people. So the room itself was spacious. The bathroom however was built for ants. One of our friends had to bend in the shower - or the shower head would hit his chest. My bum and wall were one if I needed to use the toilet. My... More

Room amenities are old and some doors do not close anymore. Air-con not operating the way it should. Bed is on the small side with old mattress.The resort is clean and staff are friendly. Food is good. Lovely to sit on the deck in the mornings looking at the sun come up.

When we arrived from Australia at 9 pm we were disappointed to find ourselves in a tiny two-bedroom apartment with no internet. Next morning we were upgraded to a bigger room with internet (aparently the 6th floor has a wifi blind spot). The views are spectacular (make sure you ask for a room with a sea view). Reception staff were... More

My mom and I went to Ballito for a weekend in June. We have visited La Montagne several times before during December holidays and we had no complaints. Considering the time of our visit, there was only a few people staying there. We were given a room far from the sea on the 7th floor. Our shower was broken and... More
