Nice scenic drive to this place from whichever you come. Resort has lots of facilities and entertainment which is very reasonable. Heated pool, hydro pool, quad bikes, horse riding and many more. There's an option to book in the self catering units or in the hotel. There is a supermarket and atm machines in the premises. Very nice place and... More

Recently had the pleasure of visiting badplaas over the August long weekend. I was pleasantly suprised at the quality of the rondavels. The rondavel we stayed at was recently refurbished and was very modern. Our only gripe related to the fact that the hot water was not hot. Once reported to reception a maintenance officer was promptly dispatched and the... More

The log cabins need a serious revamp. The place is clean. Need more activities or slides. The bad thing and this is my opinion is that you have to pay to use the hydro which is an entry fee of R10. Theres 2 sessions and you have to pay twice. The restaurant by the hydro is very sad. The cakes... More

The Resort is at this time of the year very quiet . Prehaps ideal time to do maintenance , eg broken window latches in ablution blocks , making the showers very draughty during winter . Otherwise a pleasant experience . Staff are friendly and helpful .

These include water slides, warm pools for different ages and swimming competencies, spa, quad biking, go-carting, game drives, foofy slides, putt putt and more. Most activities are affordable ranging from R10 for foofy sliding to about R175 for quad biking. It's perfect for families with... More

People who go on vacation are usually friendly and cheerful. You would expect the staff working at the resort to be friendly, however the one wants to be more unfriendly than the other one. From the shop teller to the lifeguards, they all unfriendly. Its really a beautiful resort that overall is well looked after, but does need tlc. The... More

We stayed in a 2 bed chalet which was very clean and had all the amenities of home. The resort has plenty of things to do. I enjoyed the hydro spa at the resort and did a full spa day there for R1 500 p.p. The mineral baths are heavenly and worth the money. You pay R10 p.p per session.... More

We went back after about a year, and am happy to say the 2 sleeper and 4 sleeper chalets were much improved, especially kitchen and bathroom facilities. Staff need people skills, especially coffee shop and Hydro staff. Check out is at 11am, we wanted to leave late afternoon and asked for a late check out. R600 for an additional 3... More

The resort is big and offers a lot for families, but although renovations are being undertaken, a lot more needs to be done. The biggest problem is, however, the attitude of the staff. We found them unhelpful, specially at the main restaurant. Serving us was a huge effort. A number of dishes was not in stock, and it took the... More
