After hearing so much about this amazing backpackers, we were very dissapointed to arrive to a smelly room and run down facility. We were hoping to book one of their cottages, which unfortunately were full. Being a family of 5 the reservations lady assured us the room she was accommodating us in would be family friendly and close to bathroom and kitchen facilities. Unfortunately this was not the case. There was an awesome vibe and the pub and restaurant great, but the facilities are in desperate need of maintenance and the rooms all need to be debugged and have a good clean. Very disspointed.
- 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
