Reviewed yesterday NEW

We received a good service, but we find many problems about general cleaning (sunbeds, sofas, tablecloths). So good service and quite position, but not good value for money. Good choice at breakfast and good dinner.

Second time in this lodge and will be back! Especially the massages applied by Ilse are a fantastic experience and we enjoyed them very much. The food and service are also very very enjoyable and we would recommend.

We had lagoon facing rooms with terraces which were beautifully presented and very spacious with very comfortable beds. Breakfasts were plentiful and delicious and we had two very tasty dinners in the hotel. The beach opposite the hotel...

We booked this hotel as it had a lagoon view and our agent discussed with the hotel my wife's walking difficulties and asked for a room near reception and the dining room. On arrival using the hotels own directions we went into reception with our hand luggage after a long drive and were asked to go back to our car...

Leisure Isle sits right in the bay in Knysna. The lodge is less than 50m from the water and a small beach and Leisure Isle is almost a private enclave of houses. The lodge is beautifully equipped with a terrace overlooking the water offering a great view during breakfast or dinner. We arrived very late, were met and taken care...
