My sister and I spent a week here recuperating, and the spectacular sea views were well worth the stay. The dolphin sighting one morning was also a treat. The service was a little slow, however, and a particular staff member unwilling to exert themselves once gratuity was not offered (on the bar service room bill). The food was dismal the... More

Salt Rock is a solid 3 star property that has been around forever, It is dated but its location on the Dolphin Coast and the service and staff more than make up for the dated surroundings. Our kids loved playing on the beach and in the pools. However, we were particularly impressed by the home made food, which was absolutely... More

My wife and I have just returned from a fantastic anniversary weekend at this hotel, from the moment we arrived we were greeted by friendly, helpful staff who went out of their way to make you feel Special and Welcome. We stayed in room 303 which was clean and had everything that one required except a hairdryer for the wife.... More

A week spent at this Beach Resort within the Salt Rock Hotel was absolutely brilliant. The quality of service was a little slow, but acceptable. The location could not be bettered with great views from an ocean facing balcony and loverly beach walks. The food was perhaps only average with the exception of really good and traditional Natal curries. The... More

Friendly and professional staff members. Nice room with balcony and sea view, bath and shower. Clean room, comfortable bedding. Safe environment with security. We love the breakfast and dinner that was included. Food is prepared with so much love. Every day is a variety of different food on the buffet. We stayed for 5 days and not even get the... More

Great views, amazing food and great facilities. It could do with a revamp of the rooms which look like something straight out of the 90's. Paying for internet is a very outdated business model. If a meager coffee shop can give free wifi out I don't see why a hotel that costs of R2000/night in peak season could charge additional... More

This is an old hotel set in one of the nicest parts of South Africa. I liked the revamped rooms with tasteful decor, good beds, overhauled bathrooms and the most amazing seaviews of the majestic Indian Ocean. The staff were phenomenal. The food was good, although the options were limited. The ambience and good service made for a pleasant stay.... More

This place is old and tired and needs a revamp. Rooms need an overhaul. Great views and lovely staff, food was included in our package but it was not a great selection. Fruit was plentiful on the road side but not in the hotel which was very strange.

We recently booked a weekend at the hotel and the only rooms available were the so-called deluxe rooms. On arrival we found the room not to our liking and complained to the duty manager. The manager then really went out of his way through ensure that we received an acceptable room. It was my partner's birthday on the Sunday and... More

We were pleasantly surprised with wholesomeness. The hotel is very obviously family orientated, the room felt a little spartan and in need of aesthetic help, our bathroom, although on the small side, we think the upgrades gave it a good feel. The food was unpretentiously good and if you are partial to currie, have lunch on the patio, where you... More
