Pros: There’s a lovely beach just outside the establishment within a very short walking distance. This beach had rocks sheltering bathers from the surf, so there is safe swimming. It was affordable and had a very good value with secure covered parking. It was well-lit, and the chalets were very clean and comfortable. We did not eat at the restaurant, go in the pool, or visit the disco and function center, but they all looked fine. We cooked in our chalet using the pots and pans provided in the kitchen.

Cons: Our room had no air conditioning (though there was a fan), the television did not work, and there is a noisy highway just behind it. Also, the surrounding town was not a place we wanted to spend time.

The worst experience on a December Holiday ever.
Upon arrival (27 December 2022) we asked for the owner and manager for the following...

1. Remote for the aircon

2. To come and fix the TV's -
We had 3 tv's in our flat - none of them working.
Place is advertised with DSTV and the only channel that was working was the information and add channel.

Needless to say, the remote never pitched and the channels was not sorted out.

Since we arrived (27/12/2022) until 2 days before leaving they were busy with Constuction (installing super tubes).

They started every day (including Sundays and Public Holidays) from 5: 30 am with power tools and hammering till late after 7: 00 pm at night.

When you are on holiday that is just the kind of noise you want to get away from needless to say you want to get waked up with!!

The last 2 days we had no water!!!

So, at the end of the day, we have paid the sum of R 17 150.00 for 7 nights and only 2 of them was peaceful without construction.

They took a key deposit of R 400 (they brochure says an amount of R 250) that will be refunded 3 - 4 working days.

It has been a week now and still no refund.

This place will never see us again!!!!

We booked 6 chalets in December for a family return.
My family booked a 8 sleeper but got one bedroom with double bunks all over the place.how on earth do you place 8 people in a one bedroom unit
No privacy at all for the couples.we later found out it was actually a 6 sleeper with a bunk bed added.
We also did not have a chest freezer as the other units did and were stuck with a tiny fridge that did not fit all our foodstuff and drinks.
The tv channels are controlled from the office and would change halfway through watching something.if you wanted to watch something specific you need to request at the office.
The toilet leaked.
We were livjng under cramped conditions for 5 days.
Will never return nor recommend

First and last visit...
Dirty room, huge hole at the side of the microwave which means there is radiation leakage (serious health hazard) , old filthy fridge with dirty ice that was melting all over our food.. gross shower.. The pictures we saw on the internet must have been taken a long time ago...

Stayed there a couple of times over the past 5 years. Is very good value for money. 300 Rand a night, currently 30 USD. Bungalows are spacious, can sleep 4 (I think). I have always been there alone. Right near the town, great beaches and fishing. Jolly Roger pub (the best) is nearby!

Gated, undercovder parking and security.

I had chalet number 4 on this visit. The pictures tell it all. Clean spacious, modern. it had everything I could possibly want. Braaied (BBQd) every night. The beach is around a hundred and fifty meters from the gate. In front of the resort is mostly rocky, but it is a 10 minute walk to Hibberdene beach with lifeguards. There is a pool, pub and slot machines for rainy days The price is still 300 Rand a night. At current exchange rate around 25 USD!!!!!! This is fantastic value. I will let the photos speak for themselves.

We waited 3 hours to get all our food. We complained about the service to the owner directly who doesn't seem to care at all and just screaming at his staff. We ordered off a menu that was given to us and when we needed to pay we were told that it is an old menu the prices are more. It was even the case when we compared the slip to the menu. The staff tried to assist and have us leaving happy. There is no way I will go there ever again, not even if it is the last place to sell food. I will rather stay hungry.
