Yarona Country Lodge
Reviewed January 4, 2011

Yarona Country Lodge should not be allowed to operate in ' hospitality'. Shabby linen, dirty cups in the kitchenette,ghastly contraption they call a jacuzzi didn't work, cold shower, no food by 8pm and when food for the 'buffet' eventually arrived, (on the back of a pick-up truck) it looked inedible and we simply couldn't handle it. All reception and serving staff were totally incompetent. Every single wine we ordered, were out of stock, I eventually found 2 bottles of white wine lying on a shelf in the bar. Although there are large fridges in the bar (the temperature outside was 34 degrees Celcius), there was not a single bottle of white wine in the fridge! Every request was met with an attitude of 'what do you want next?' Very disappointing and very expensive for what you get. Yarona Country Lodge should have a serious re-think of 'what they are trying to achieve here because looking after their guests is certainly not one of them'. We will never go back and recommend that you find other accommodation. A complete rip-off!
