Had a really nice weekend stay at Oubaai. Service was great, rooms spacious and very detailed.
Very relaxing spa. Amazing surroundings. Free shuttle was a bonus. Only negative was options for dinner was very limited.

This is a fantastic hotel in a beautiful setting. The room are spacious, modern and really nice, some of the best I have seen. The staff is friendly and always ready to help. Pay the extra and choose the Regency club, the breakfast included is superb. At the end, my only regret was not to stay longer...

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the Regency CLub

Nice location and beautiful contemporary design do not make up for a shocking food experience. A Spanish Buffet for R180 pp turned out to be one of the worst meals I have had in a long time. Salad buffet was simple but fresh and I should have stuck to that rather. The bread was ok and the seafood soup was starchy and thick. The main course consisted of: a saffron rice concoction that was so sticky we could't get it off the spoon; a flat chicken breast steamed and dressed in a tomatoe based sauce; mixed over-cooked veggies in a generic catering sauce; mussels out of the shell in a thick white sauce; and the "show stopper" was the paella with only (more) yellow sticky rice and two mussels in shell left over. Obviously there were other diners who got to the prawns and proteien stuff first! The sweet buffet consisted of strawberries, chantilly cream and creme brullee dressed up in different ways. The fritter does not deserve a mention. Hope F&B reads this and improve on their effort!!

This was our second stay at Oubaai having previously visited in December 2011. We returned because of our very good experience with the resort and hotel restaurant. This time we were very disappointed. On the last occasion the then manager went out of his way to give personal attention to the patrons and to recommend delicious meal choices. This time the ambiance was not what it should have been with children running riot and physically knocking into our table almost spilling our wine. The main restaurant lights were flickering on and off presumable being interfered with by children.Since management was nowhere to be found we had to take it upon ourselves to move tables.There was a choice of a "braai buffet" or a la carte which we decided upon. My husband ordered the lamb shank as his main course. It arrived ice cold together with ice cold mash potato. When the manager finally arrived, long after the end of the meal, my husband expressed his dissatisfaction to no avail. Breakfast offered more disappointment. We specifically ordered well cooked omelettes - both were so runny we couldn't eat them. We were also amazed to return from the buffet to discover that our table had been cleared and reset for other patrons. We are clearly not the first people to have experienced service issues specifically in the hotel restaurant. In the light of all the other good things the hotel has to offer it would be a pity if senior management does not address these service failings.

This is a new-ish hotel and everything from the rooms to the entire resort area is kept absolutely perfect.

The rooms are large with a very modern open-plan bathroom. The beds are extremely comfortable. The staff is very courteous and the golf course is just stunning.

Breakfast has a huge spread of european delights. A special mention to the chef, who made an extremely (off-menu) tasty Indian style curry for me on request. The staff has an attitude which just says- "nothing is too much to ask for!"

Also, dont miss out on the hiking trail at the very edge of their golf course. The hotel mgt. will arrange for a golf cart to drive you to the very bottom of their property (which has a lovely lake, and a couple of benches- think picnic spot). Once there, you can climb your way up through a winding mud trail. A great way to build up an appetite for their huge breakfast.

A beautiful place for relaxing, and I am sure to return to this property on my next visit to SA.
