Since 1990 I went there with my parents and 2010 and this year me and my husband with kids went there. Always a super visit and nice people. Merry Pebbles just makes us happy and relaxed. Feels like home from home !!

Very pleasant resort. Be sure to check the accommodation type before booking, we initially had a Plettenburg unit which is quite small for a family of 4. The manager at the reception had no problems upgrading us to a larger unit on the afternoon of check-in, the unit is called a Tulbach. The resort is very well maintained, and although... More

Would definitely recommend Merry Pebbles for a family holiday. We stayed in a Plettenburg which was neat and tidy. There were plenty of warm blankets for everyone. There was so much to do inside the resort. The staff were friendly and very helpful.

An excellent place to spend time with friends and family in a clean, harmonious environment. Great for relaxation and a manageable distance from all the sights. Staff are friendly. The bottle store is a great addition.

Stayed in a tent for one night. Nice accommodation/resort . A lot of space to put up your tent. Flexible staff.Showers are a little bit cold but clean. Nice fireplaces for having a braai. Next day off to Kruger National Park. You need to get up very early, but I can really recommend going there!!

The resort is basically in town but once you pass through the gates be prepared to surrender to the beauty of nature. The resort is in a brilliant setting under the mountain beside a stream. Camping sites can be very busy on long weekends and school holidays but out of peak it is quiet and peaceful. The mountain biking trails... More
