This is a hotel that meets and exceeds every expectation we have in a place where we would want to stay. The amenities are all exceptional, of course, to the point of opulence. But it is the people who run it who made this a fairy-tale experience that we have not experienced in 30 yrs of travel in more than 30 countries across 4 continents. My wife and I look for unique staying experiences, unusual B&B's for the most part, to make our travel experiences uniquely memorable, mainly because the big brand names do not give you the personal, family-atmosphere and feel of a B&B. However, we do not do this at the expense of comfort or cleanliness, of course.
Needless to say, the Manna Bay not only put the big brand names to shame in terms of the quality of its accommodations, it eclipsed any B&B we've stayed at when it came to attentiveness and warmth of service. Jean-Marie and Madre, the hostesses whose only desire is to make sure that you lack for nothing, are two of the loveliest people you will ever meet. And the high tea..what can I say, other than its to die for. Particularly after a tiring day spent sightseeing, to return to such a sumptuous meal, is just amazing.
Don't miss it--it is the highlight of the day.
I cannot say enough about how wonderful our stay was. Thank you, Jean Marie and Madre, for making it so. We will not forget you and we fully intend to not only return, but recommend it to others of our family who plan to visit South Africa.
Well worth the money spent!
