Lovely place especially for Golf, staff were friendly and professional. I enjoyed the service and meals. Golf courses are in great condition and well kept. I am a Golf Tour operator so will be sending groups down for their enjoyment.

The hotel, golf course and staff are absolute amazing. The Links golf course is a bit pricey, but very nice. The restaurants ( Monet, Club Lounge ) are good. The breakfast as well as cocktails in the Club Lounge are great.

From arrival to departure,the friendliness of the staff and the variety of activities and amenities that were offered by the hotel, gave us this warm fuzzy feeling of being home away from home. The grounds offered walking trails, which were right up our alley. Even the security was exceptional and the guard on duty so helpful, when we got a little lost. When we struggled to connect my husband's phone the on duty evening duty manager did not get irritated with the amount of time she spent to be of help. The same goes for reception and guest relations manager. The food that we had at the congress lunch the Saturday was a mediterranean lunch and was exceptional. So was the Eggs Benedict at the club house. The champagne rounded off a champagne weekend.

Fancourt is surrounded by wonderful golf courses, restaurants and amenities. The golf rates are not relative to similar or better courses in SA and the restaurant offerings are of average quality but rather expensive.. The total experience at Fancourt left me feeling "ripped off".

I have stayed at Fancourt a number of times. It is always fantastic. What surprises though is how it always gets better and better and beats expectations. It ticks every box from wonderful staff that remember your visits to superb facilities. I can't recommend Fancourt enough.

What an absolutely incredible experience! Leandra at Guest Relations went the extra mile to make us feel so special. Lorenzo, our porter was super. Hilton at the Leisure center & Oceana at the kids club made sure the kids were always happy and entertained. The food was phenomenal, our room was beautiful, the golf course was exquisite. This is a week we will never forget and we will definitely be back soon. It was worth every single cent spent! Thank you Fancourt ❤️

We visited Fancourt for a week long family break. From the moment we arrived, til the moment we left, we had a fabulous time. The staff at Fancourt go out of their way to ensure every comfort and care of their guests is met. Every person we met was friendly, helpful and genuine. From the spa (Rebecca) to the cart driver (Setu) to the front desk and restaurants - brilliant service that is truly rare. The cleaning staff took such care and the evening turn down even included a special biscuit for the kids, with their names in icing. The facilities from tennis to golf to the leisure centre were all so well kept and beautifully run. The grounds are spectacular, breathtakingly beautiful and impeccably maintained and managed. Thanks Fancourt for a fabulous holiday experience. We will see you again soon, The Lamb family
