Not much to do at the resort, but a good central point from which one can drive to some good points of interest. There were serious roadworks in progress through the town's main road while we were there which caused serious delays.

Wonderful ,courteous and friendly staff and unobtrusive. They ask if they may do something for you and do it willingly. Well maintained units and grounds. Housekeeper Norma is simply the best! Gardenerwilling to share his knowledge.

My family and I definitely enjoyed our experience with this resort, and I would recommend it to anyone. The beds are comfortable, we had a baby with us and the resort provided us with a cot for the baby as well. The units are spacious and clean.

Had a great stay with my family here, very relaxing and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We arrived late and did not have any issues with checking in even though it was after 10pm. Close to the beach and shops as well, it's best if you have a car though if you want to get to places

We had to pay R100 fine for little about 45 mins late checkout. Bare in mind we had to carry our luggage down 4 flights. And the resort was relatively quiet, so don't think that was an issue. The fine for being late should be pointed out during check in
