Wonderful relaxing stay as always. We pretty much had the pool to ourselves. Perfect place for a chilled stay (and golf if you play). Good value restaurant and fully equipped units, for self catering. Rooms a bit tired but very spacious. We will return!

Our group of 28 - ranging in age from 8 to 72 - all agreed that our week’s stay at the Fish River Resort was one of the most enjoyable holidays we’ve had.

The rooms are spacious and well maintained. The grounds similarly so with the few golfers in our group satisfied with the course, despite the fairways being dry due to the drought. Their only complaint was that the carts needed an upgrade.

The nightly entertainment was great fun with Neville a versatile. warm and genial host.

Unlike experienced by a previous reviewer, the bar food was available into the early evening. Prices of food and drinks in the bar were very reasonable.

The beach, which is exclusively for use by guests, is pristine with transport provided for those not wanting to walk.
Obviously there are no lifeguards so swimmers must be cautious.

The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful - even offering to prepare and delivering take away breakfasts for those who had an early departure.

All our group are hoping to be able to enjoy more time at the resort in the coming years.

A big “Thank you” to all staff members.

We stayed over at hotel for 1 night and played the beautiful golf course the next day. Staff had left at 4pm so the hotel was very deserted and no restaurant, shop, room service, bar or facilities were available.

I was the only guest for 3 days. The accomadation is great. EXCELLENT FOR family self catering. No food except snacks golfers can buy. So you have to carry the whole house and cook for every meal. The place has transformed from a family resort to a Golf day.

Excellent service from staff. They are very helpful and friendly. Good variety of activities for the whole family. Good location. Not too far not too close. I would suggest that the resort opens for Sunday lunch.

We really enjoyed our stay. Only issue we had was the golf carts which are not in a good state. The course is beautiful. And also there wasn't wi-fi. Overall we were very happy. My family would definitely visit again

Short weekend trip , getaway . Units are clean but the decor is outdated. Swimming pool and lawn was clean and maintained, Went fishing with some help from their stafff. This was excellent as they know what to do. Great for a short getaway. Breakfast was good. No shops close so make sure that you have food for self catering as nothing available at the resort.

It's a good place to take family, very family friendly. For promotional sense if you may consider rewarding for coming back. The rooms are a bit stuffy, airfreshners will do. The cereals options must increase.
