Really excellent all round - great service, great access to beach, river, forest, etc. Only criticism is that dining-room and lounge get a little crowded, chaotic and noisy (because of the high density of kids) in high season (especially if the weather isn't good). Perhaps a separate section for families with kids under a certain age could alleviate this.

Real hidden jewel with breathtaking scenery on the South African Wild Coast. Very friendly service, lots of activities and too much quality food to choose from. Good destination for a family to unpack and escape from the busy every day troubles.

We flew in and the runway was well kept. The overall setting is great and the food was very good. The restaurant staff are a bit rough around the edges and we were unceremoniously asked to vacate our table halfway through our meal. We didn't see the tiny room names on the tables. They have a strange system of seating...

A wonderful relaxing holiday! Superb location, lovely staff, great facilities, quaint (but tired) accommodation, hotel food. Lovely not to have to think of anything but arriving in time for our next meal!

Weather was not kind to us in the 4 days that we were there but non-the-less we had a great time with the excellent food, entertainment facilities and the beautiful setting! A chalet in the front row should be requested (as our initial chalet in the second row was a bit disappointing)

The service at this hotel is top class. The staff are attentive and very efficient. I was especially impressed that Unathi at reception had arranged for the hotel to bake a chocolate cake for my Dad's 70th birthday weekend, which was a lovely thought / surprise. Her passion for her job and warmth in her role are tangable. The food...

My husband and I heard about Wavecrest by word of mouth. Everyone raved about it so we had to see for ourselves. It proved to be a worthwhile trip that we look forward to doing again. The location is amazing in terms of natural beauty and bird life. The accommodation was very good, clean and comfortable. The food was amazing...
