It is a little out 'in the middle of nowhere' but once we were there and settled we didnt need to leave. It really is ideal for groups looking to spend the majority of their time on the golf course.

We came as a family for breakfast to the hotel. Very disappointing. The spread was limited with a lot of the food not being refilled. Raw eggs and absolutely TERRIBLE service and attitude from the waiters.

The meals were very good,...

It's our first weekend away as a family to Fish River Sun. It's absolutely fantastic. We took advantage of the February package deal. It was so nice to not have to cook at all except for making coffee! The facilities are great and there is plenty to do there with the kids. My only criticism would be the communication regarding...

This hotel is in a nice but remote location, the intenet facilities are very limited and enjoying a drink...
