Voetplaat park is quite an easy drive to get out of the busy city of durban. The grounds keeping and overall upkeep of the estate is also quite impressive. On the other hand, the furniture of the cottages are somewhat outdated and carries that old bookshelf smell. Not exactly my cup of tea, might be yours though. The beach also isn't exactly a swimming friendly beach, more of a fishing beach. I have a toddler so my family tried to organize a cot for my baby, but unfortunately the staff was not too friendly and also provided us with a brokenish cot which we didnt end up using, they also charge for the cot (we didn't pay for it because we opted not to use it), so not a baby friendly place. All in all, this place is ok if you just looking to get away from the city. No real up to

We stayed there last weekend with our extended families and have been there once before in January 2013. The decor is bland very much like a Nurses residence. I would know because I lived at a nurses residence during my training. While the decor has remained relatively the same with both visits the reception was PATHETIC! We booked a cot for my 11month old nephew for the weekend and obviously I wasnt expecting something fabulous, but what we got was another story! It was an old wooden rickety cot with no linen. A complete hazard! The lady at the reception named was very rude to us when we told her about the cot and was rude to my husband the following day when he asked for the table tennis bats and darts and told him "why cant you give me break?!" She then went digging for the

Situated 12 km's south of the village Hibberdene and same distance south from the closest large town, Port Shepstone. It is conveniently situated at about 110 km's from Durban city centre, 60km's from Scottburgh with it's very good beach, +/- 16 km's from towns like Shelley Beach, Uvango and St. Michaels (also a splendid beach at St. Michaels) and abot 25 km's from the ever popular Margate. Shopping can be doen at Shelley Center and the odd movie can be caught here as well. Belonging to a trade union, Utatu, Voetplaatpark offers the average no-nonsense, no frills holiday maker peace and quiet. It was established by it's members for it's members whom were and still is members or pensioners of Utatu and employees/pensioners of Transnet, Prasa and Bombela. Non-members are welcome
