Aarhus, Denmark
Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

The place was really nice. And the big pool was fantastic. Unfortunately the jacuzzi did not work. And the staff was not very friendly, and not very attentive. All in all it was a good stay, and we came back for one night.

We loved to stayed our second time here! We had a big apartment, which what big enough for us five. The staff, especially Marlon, was very helpful and it was nice, to meet him again. The pool area is great, also the communal rooms and the kitchens. We had all, what we needed, thank you very much again!

Enjoyed the peace and tranquility. The place is close to the beach and its a walking distance to the shops. Its also close to NMMU. The security has improved, they should keep on maintaining the property

Certainly commendable. We stayed there over the Festive Period (the 1st time we stayed at Island Vibe Port Elizabeth). We normally stay at the Lungile Lodge. I found the setting very peaceful and not too busy, if you don't like the hustle and bustle then this is certainly an alternative for you. The accommodation was perfect for our needs and...
