Mac Mac Forest Retreat
Ranked #14 of 16 Specialty Lodging in Sabie
Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

Been going to Mac Mac Forest retreat for about 5 years now. Stayed in everything except camping grounds. Tent's are nice and close to nature. The houses are the best. Private and extremely quite. Restaurant is affordable and good value for taste. Go for a week and walk around. Endless forests ..

We always enjoy visiting Mac Mac Forest Retreat as we love the scenery, the people who are so friendly and helpful and make our stay. We have visited Mac Mac for many years and will continue doing so.

We had a lovely time. The tent accommodation and bathroom is clean and the outside feeling makes the stay special. The food in the restaurant was simple but tastety and very affordable. All the staff are very friendly and helpful, a great place for our family to visit again.

Overall everything was great, all the staff were excellent, friendly and very welcoming. The food was some of the best food we've eaten and everything was so comfortable. They told us about all great places to go and helped us to find what we needed.

Stayed as part of an organised group tour with Explore! holidays. We have told Explore that they really need to find somewhere nearby as this place was just ikky.

Firstly as it was winter the place was freezing, the rooms stunk of damp. the carpet was sticky and dirty and the bed were basically pieces of foam on top of some hardboard. to cap it all there was no water at all in the morning which meant we left colder and dirtier than when we arrived. All 3 of us also ended up with a fair few flea bites which didn't really help matters.

Yes it's cheap, but pay more and stay somewhere nicer!!!

To be fair - food in the restaurant was dead cheap and not to bad.
