As we went out of season we were lucky enough to get a sea facing room, but would have been happy with any other room as they all have views. The staff went out of their way for us and nothing was to much trouble for them. Breakfast is till 9.00am, we would have preferred it be until 10.00am as most people go for early morning walks, fishing etc and get back to late for breakfast Having said that, they went out of their way to make breakfast for us on our return after 9.00am. Dinner was superb with a lovely seafood platter. Rooms very comfortable. Great bar with a wide selection of drinks. Games room just off the bar which is an added bonus. Swimming pool with lounges close to rooms, dinning hall which is greatbforvparents with younger children. They even have a small library, reading glasses are attached to a string in case you forgot yours, we thought that was a classic!! There is plenty to do and anything you need can be arranged by the hotel, body massages etc., guided walks to the magnificent waterfalls, visit to a Sangoma, visit to the local town, horse riding, bike riding, the list is endless. We will definitely be back and this time taking a whole crowd of people to show them what a beautiful place this is to go to.
