I've been visiting De Hoek for many, many years, and I am pleased to report that, by and large, it has kept up its high standards of service. Located in the beautiful Magaliesburg hills 90 minutes outside of Johannesburg, it is a deluxe rural hotel, a secluded sanctuary with extremely friendly and forthcoming staff, very comfortable rooms, and a very good restaurant with excellent food. The grounds are immaculate and serene. Yes, perhaps the restaurant service could be a bit more attentive at times, but the staff is very accommodating and helpful--they genuinely appear happy to make you comfortable. There are various activities they can arrange for you, but the real joy of De Hoek is sitting on your balcony and reveling in the silence. For first-time visitors to Africa, it is also an ideal place to relax from jet lag before starting your trip to see wild animals. I can hardly wait to return to its peacefulness.
