I've just stayed here for 8 days and really loved it. The place is run by very friendly people, most of them are locals. The bar/restaurant is run by a young and vibrant crew and the food is delicious, also from an Italian perspective.
I stayed in a single room which was ideal and the bathroom facilities where always neat and well kept.
I spent hours just reading books chilling out on an hammock, playing pool or poker, where i badly lost!
I did most of the activities organized by the staff. All good especially canooing down the river to a beautiful secluded beach and then back to have a braai on the river shore. Thanks Tim!
The walk to the waterfall is a must.
The place is children friendly and there are childrens living there.
This is my fifth trip to SA and Amapondo is a place where i would definitely come back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Amapondo is Ama-azing. Amapondo is nestled on a hill on the verge of a tropical rain forest and only 2 minutes walk from a beautiful beach. Head down to sunbathe or plunge in the clear warm waters of the deep rock pools nearby. The African-themed rooms and deluxe private self-catering cottages all have their own unique design and style. The quirkily designed cottages have incredible views, are really comfortable and come at a price that you'll find hard to match. Turtle Cove has one of the best views on the Wild Coast from its upstairs bubble bath, whilst Crystal House, with its glass frontage, offers classic panoramic ocean views. Whether you want a quiet, relaxing break in your own piece of paradise, a base from which you can explore the natural beauty of the area, an adventure on one of their many tours, close interactions with locals, genuine cultural experiences, yoga lessons, a deep tissue massage, or a thumping all-out party at their buzzy bar, you'll find it at Amapondo. ... more less
