We visited Brenton Haven from 22-24 Feb 2022 & stayed in room/suite 3 . The booking & check in process was easy & efficient. Front desk staff were always friendly. The best part about this resort is definately the views & hearing the waves all night long. From the Resort Reception it is around 200m down a walkway & you on a lovely beach , clean & nice soft sand. There are public restrooms which were always clean. The beach was safe & very seldom free of a few people. One is able to swim , to the right of Castle Rock but I suggest being wary of the cross currents if you not an able swimmer.

The room was really modern , clean & had everything we needed. There was an outside covered braai which we used a few times with seating to eat outdoors. Only gripe & reason for 4 rating was the smell from the bath/basin drains which was attended to promptly but not completely sorted out.

There are 2 restaurants on site , 1 where you can have breakfast that opens at 8am & the other opens later & stays open a bit later as well . We did not dine at either but they were popular with external guests as well.

The Resort also has a pool & gym on site , gym is quite big & has all the basic necessities for a good workout.

Had a very good experience & loved the setting & proximity to the beach . About 6km outside of Knysna town

Brenton Haven is built along the cliff, so lots of stairs in the hotel but not so many in the cottages. The views are superb and the hotel is excellent. Very helpful friendly staff, clean rooms and a good restaurant and smaller café for breakfast and lunches. A good size pool with loungers and umbrellas for those who can't face the big waves of the Indian ocean. The sunsets are beautiful and the stars are fantastic.
There are more stair and slopes down to the sandy beach which stretches all along the bay. The location is quiet and select but only 15 minutes drive from the popular town of Knysna. A truly lovely place.

Brenton Haven is in an absolutely stunning location right on the beach. Our 2 bedroom villa was really nice with a great large balcony/terrace with BBQ overlooking the ocean. our villa also had a garage which would have been big enough to store beach gear as well as park the car if you were staying for a while.
Only negative is a walkway back to other villas from the restaurant/pool/gym went right past the sliding glass doors and kitchen window of our villa so you felt like you had to keep the curtains closed on that side for privacy which did darken the living area a fair bit. Some frosted glass on these windows would be good.

A fabulous 4 night stay. Wonderful beach walks, excellent pizza in the restaurant, villa facilities are well maintained and adequate, staff friendly and welcoming, pool area relaxing and well maintained. Well situated fir experiencing the area but far enough away to avoid the hustle. Highly recommend this place for a lovely holiday.
