What a stunning place with a beautiful view. A short walk and you are on the beach, enjoyed every moment of it. After a midday braai nothing beats the traquil sound of the ocean to get you into that peaceful afternoon slumber.

Really enjoyed this one night stay and would stay longer in the future. What a stunning view, well equipped and so peaceful with long strolls on the beach. A gem of a find. A lovely location and great value for a group of 6.

We booked to go to Rugged Rocks but due to family matters of the health of a relative we have been forced to change our plans. We paid for our accommodation in advance . I have to give accolades to Rugged Rocks that they are an honorable and class act. They refunded our deposit and while we will miss out going back to this beautiful coast this year, I write this review to commend the management and owners. These days, the honest business ethics of Rugged Rocks are hard to find, while we still fight with another establishment for a Rage booking refund for over 7 months. I trust this review will contribute to ongoing prosperity of Rugged Rocks and we will endeavor to get there done day soon.

I have always enjoyed my stay at Rugged Rocks Beach Cottages. They are clean and provide all that you need in the way of facilities. You do need a car here as it is a little remote but there is a fantastic mall not too far away by car from which all your supplies can be obtained. I would if I could stay there for a month or more. It is a wonderful place to reflect, have family get togethers, birthdays, get fit! A wonderful healthy environment with pristine beaches which encourage long walks! I love the place!

We stayed in unit 5 on our way to Cape Town and they upgraded us at their lower rate, because it was a better unit and they were not busy. We where doing a business trip down the garden route and on our way back 3 weeks later we came back to them and they put us in unit 2 at their lower rate again and we stayed for 2 nights. The unit was very clean and modern, had a lovely sea view and had all that we needed. I recommend this place to anyone who wants good value for money and friendly managers.

We stayed in one of the smaller units and although well positioned and well equiped, it looking rather neglected, aged and really was in need of some loving attention. I had to use bed pillows on the chairs as the cushions were totally flat. It really needed a revamp. This would be ideal for families as there is plenty of space and the management gave us a disount without us asking - so not all bad.

Sea Forever has one of the best locations we have stayed in around the world and would be 5* if it was refurbished. It really needs a good clean. Pillows stained. Curtains and seat covers required a good wash. No shower head. Outside lights not working. Corroded window handles. WHAT A SHAME.! Could be fantastic. Would not want other cabins as views not as good.

We only spent a night here - but had a great time. We stayed in Sand Castle and enjoyed the double story. It was close to the beach and we also used the nearby resort swimming pool. We are definitely going back and would highly recommend it.
