Oubaai Hotel Golf & Spa
Ranked #4 of 9 Hotels in George
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Oubaai is an excellent resort. Truly one of the best I have been to and good value for money. The rooms are large and luxurious with beautiful beds and bathrooms. I only wish they had wifi in the rooms as 3G signal in the area was not great. Service was fantastic, there were always guys to take you around the place on golf carts and they were always helpful. I highly recommend going to the whale watching deck, it is a stunning view.

Another nice to have would have been a heated pool. The garden route weather is always a little unpredictable so the outdoor pools tend to stay cold most of the year. I recommend having a round at Oubaai golf course, it is a lovely course that is in impeccable condition. The Garden Route has some of the best courses in the world without doubt. If you are in the area you must play Pinnacle Point - 18 holes of unbridled sea views.

The restaurants are reasonably priced which is very encouraging, as most hotels like to rip you off at their eateries. The breakfasts were fantastic. An amazing spread with wonderful flavours. The grill and sushi at the higher end restaurant are also wonderful.

The only strange thing was that they charge for one to use the kids play room at R35 an hour. It is not much and they have child minders there but one would expect that to be an included cost. There is plenty to do with and without the kids.

I would love to go back to Oubaai often, it is just a pity it is a challenge to get to from Durban.

We spent only one night at the Oubaai Hyatt while passing through George - but I wish we'd spent longer. A huge room with King bed, luxurious bathroom, and a great location. The breakfast was included and was excellent, as was the service.

The only think I can fault is the roll-away bed which was uncomfortable for our daughter.

If you play golf make sure you stay long enough to play on the Oubaai course - it's outstanding.

Outstanding experience. Room and bathroom was outstanding, so was the breakfast. The lounge with tea/coffee all day long, drinks in the evening, especially on rainy days, contributed to a memorable stay.

We had gone in a tour visit with family and we had a great time. The rooms were well done, best thing was the open bathroom. The dj set up in the hall at the ground level was a lot of fun...! The staff was very friendly and the food was as per our requirements as mentioned to the tour operators. Its far from city but the scenic beauty around makes you forget that. Also they have a golf course at a distance where even the locals can become member. Its worth a visit.

The experience at the Oubaai Hyatt was outstanding.

The Golf course is outstanding, especially in the mornings before the wind picks up.

The room was incredibly spacious and luxurious, with an awesome walk in shower.

The food at La Cucina (breakfast) and Waterside Grill (Dinner) were outstanding.

The kind of place you dont want to check out of. Need to bring my family here.

Room Tip: Rooms close to the pool are nice

This hotel is spread out over the property. A golf cart got us to our room; where we then climbed stairs to the second floor. The rooms are clean and nice. The bed and pillows are comfortable. TV channels are scarce. There isn't Internet in the rooms; we had to go to the lobby or main part of the hotel to connect, for free. It is a 10 minute drive into George for shopping and restaurant selections. There are two restaurants which serve decent food. A breakfast with good selection is included. The golf is reasonably priced and the course is fairly challenging with some beautiful views of the gorge. The sixth hole is a very intimidating par 3. We found this hotel quite comfortable and good value with easy access to the Garden Route.

We had a fantastic 2-night stay. The staff were particularly friendly and extremely welcoming. The King room was spacious and well apportioned. Make sure you ask for a non-smoking room. My daughter would rate the bathroom and specifically the shower as "the best ever". Definitely organise a picinic on the whale watching deck - it is spectacular! The "e-concierge" web-based service worked well and gave us the opportunity to arrange all sorts of activities and amenities before our arrival. Had a top class massage in a luxurious spa. A most enjoyable experience worth repeating.
