An iron in rooms will help a great deal instead of having this in the laundry room. Alternatively, have an ironing place very close to all adjoining rooms/floor level. Communicating with the staff necessitates walking to the reception instead of just picking up a phone. May be a wall-mounted and immovable two-way radio between the room and the reception may be more apt.

I visited Ecolux for a family holiday after discovering the amazing hotel in South Africa. My trip began at Komatipoort and then I was assisted to bring my family to mazambique. The room in Komatipoort was spacious and homely, with amazing staff and service. Mozambique was huge with a bath, shower, seating and king size bed. The comfort far exceeded any other Mozambique hotel that I have stayed in. The swimming pool was amazing, perfect for both small children and adults with a divider adding exclusivity. The staff helped so much, even remembering my name throughout the visit. Thanks for an amazing memory to Ecolux.

This was our second visit, using the hotel as a base for visiting the Kruger Park - the Crocodile Bridge gate is about 10 minutes away. The rooms are spacious and very well laid out, and the staff are welcoming and efficient. The restaurant is excellent, a great range of food all well presented and cooked superbly - compliments to John the chef, top job! The billing includes breakfast, and the staff went out of their way to provide us with packed breakfasts and lunches for our early morning trips to Kruger. Highly recommended, exceptional value for money

The staff is friendly and helpful. Some of the rooms are nice, clean and big. But a certain upstairs room was not so clean, had a cockroach moving around, and the carpet smelled damp, so the whole room smelled musty. The breakfast is also not a 4–5-star level type.

I was disappointed with the breakfast that was served during my stay. Ecolux have really dropped their standard with their breakfast menu. No fresh fruits or pastries served, just tea/coffee or juice and a breakfast menu where you can select from 4 options.

Thank you for your feedback - We are however really disappointed reading this. This, however, cannot be. We do serve fresh fruits and pastries each morning and we have 8 different options to choose from our breakfast menu, to be exact. We do hope to host you again!

My stay at Ecolux Boutique Hotel in Komatipoort was outstanding. The warm welcome, beautifully designed rooms, and eco-friendly touches made for a luxurious and relaxing experience. The hotel features modern design and well-maintained gardens that create a serene atmosphere. The breakfast was great, and the friendly, helpful staff ensured a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Ecolux’s commitment to sustainability added to the appeal. Highly recommended for a comfortable and eco-conscious stay!

I am 80 years old and decided to treat myself . I booked into Ecolux Kruger as I wanted to go on an day safari. What a suprise to hear that Ecolux have a 2nd hotel less than 2 hours away in Mozambique Maccaneta. I eagerly booked a 2 night stay. A hotel transfer got me across the border and within no time I was in my luxuary room. Not only was the food excellent I got to walk on the beach while at all times assisted by the wonterful team at Ecolux. What a fantastic bush to beach concept. Thankyou Ecolux for a memorable holiday.

Nice rooms. Nice setting. HORRIBLE service at the restaurant; LONG waiting time, over 1 hour for orders, slow-moving staff, getting orders WRONG. The staff cannot possibly be trained, they are SO, SO bad.
