The Chef!!... Wow they were amazing with the delicious food, starting from starters to desert, deco. Everything shows the passion from what they create in the Galley for visitors. I can say all was full of LOVE and not forget the cleaning staff, receptionist. When you enter the resort you are welcomed by LOVE & SMILES.

What a glorious few days in this gem of a resort! We were greeted by warm, welcoming staff who personally took us down to our beach facing room. The fresh white linen, a comfortable king sized bed and a door that opens onto the beach impressed from the start. Our first sunset was spent sipping ice cold wine while relaxing... More

Given the value of the Rand against all other currencies, one is certainly tempted to stay home instead of going abroad. Mpekweni Beach Resort is certainly one's answer to Mauritius. 40 kilometres from Port Alfred, this resort is easily accessible by road from either East London or Port Elizabeth.

Was there for 10 days. Beautiful, unspoiled expansive beaches, great lagoon and pool area. Photos don't do the place justice. Lots to do - something for everyone. Luxury Suite room was great and food was good too! Service to a high standard and very friendly, accommodating staff. Will definitely be back.
