We stayed here at the end of October during a golf trip around the Eastern Cape. The hotel is unpretentious and in excellent condition and rooms are surprisingly spacious and modern, many of them back on to the golf course.
Unlike the previous reviewer we were lucky enought to do a game drive in Shamwari the day before which was a fantastic experience. Bushman Sands and Shamwari are owned by the same group - Mantis Collection.
Staff at Bushman Sands were extremely friendly from the reception to restuarant and the golf shop. There is also a small spa but we didn't have the chance to use it. The golf course itself is in great condition despite only being fully opened for less than 2 years. Take a cart though, its a long walk!
You can also do game drives and boat cruises close to the hotel - hopefully we wil get the time to do this next time round.
