Very disappointed with what we found on arrival. the unit was far below the required minimum standard. On complaining, I encountered the 2 most willing and accommodating owners one could find. Within 30min they had sourced and replaced everything in the unit to make it comfortable.
I would recommend it for a relaxed, rustic fishing weekend. No bells and whistles...rates need to be adjusted accordingly. Very nice waterfront, pool, shop and games room. All staff willing and hard working. Road could be a challenge when raining for a low rise sedan but only a short distance.
All the best for the future.

I liked the location right in front of the marina.
The chalet was warm,they gave us enough blankets.
I did not like the plastic plates,the cups were discolored.Water in the bathroom sink and shower was not draining.
The road will require a 4 x 4.
Small fixes makes this a perfect holiday destination.

Hi, thank you so much for a lovely stay. Beautiful chalets and such friendly staff. I would suggest some music around the pool area but other than that it was lovely. Fishing was also great and kept us quite busy on the saturday.

The first impression was not good at all i wanted to turn around and go back home. The amount we paid per night and the condition in which the chalet was in was definitely not value for money. The chalets are poorly cleaned, and the kitchen utensils were not to par as the knifes were blunt and pan to make eggs was not so non-stick. On the first day my son was attacked by wasps at the kid's playground which was thereafter removed after we reported the same to the staff. Toilet is not properly cemented to the floor and the drains blocked as the water did not drain sufficiently when showering. Several insects in late afternoon that is a bother as you can't keep the door open and enjoy the scenery. Day visitors are a bother as they take over the fishing spots from the people staying in the chalets. Staff are tasked with more than 1 job hence suggestion will be to appoint proper cleaners to clean the chalets and staff are not visible in the sense that they looked like day visitors and were not recognisable. Housekeeping I expect to be performed in the morning and not late afternoon when it's almost time to get ready for bedtime. With a few changes Vaal Marina can be a pleasant and relaxing getaway destination. Not much to keep the kids busy with.

We was very disappointed the website stated 3 bathrooms but there is only 2 the 3rd was a toilet. No wifi and network, aircon is only in the lounge and other 3 rooms were so hot, the staff was rude and they false advertising according to what you get. Total waste of money we left a day early.

I loved how clean the entire property was. The service from the staff was professional but very friendly. I loved that no one came to us to tell us about noise levels (it sucks hearing that especially because we’re having a great time). I would rate my overall experience a 10/10 and would definitely recommend it to other people.

3 bedroom chalet, run down, damp on all walls, broken doors, old sheets with hair on them. Plastic crockery, so unhygienic - plastic serving spoons burnt and stained, as was plastic breadboard, holes in couch and dirty. Side table of one bedroom dangerously loose off the wall. Road to resort needs upgrading. Very overpriced. Such a pity as the location is prime.

They ask for your drivers license at point of entry . Never returned my license and when I asked them to send it to me they just could not give a hoot. They also show zero interest in assisting to get the license dropped off at any courier facilities.

The place was beautiful I would to go back there. I enjoyed every moment there it was private calming and a place to destress. I would love to go back there soon. The play area pool and games room was nice. There was so much to do
