Cleanliness of toilets terrible and caravan stands in F needs serious attention. Dirt roads in F causes a lot of unnecessary dust. They should be tarred or paved . There should be cleaners 24/7 during December as one cleaner cannot cope. He is old and does not even clean the basins properly

We stayed at the camping site D42 ,a stone throw away from the sea. 5 star restaurants need to check out the condition of the outside shower and toilet facilities , you might learn something. That's a big positive as it was never dirty. No hard music allowed after hours , 24/7 security and friendly staff. As always, we have enjoyed our few days. Would love to stay in one of the houses but the prizes are a bit to steep. More than enough shops/ restaurants in a waling distance .Sunrise is always a winner . Camping sites are clean and big. Dit was lekker ATKV

Lovely sea fronting campsite, excellent ablutions, and pensioner plus member discount. What more could one ask for ? We felt safe in the campsite, as well as on the walkway and the beach. The beach is also very clean. Safety and cleanliness of the surroundings are unfortunately becoming an issue at many beach resorts.

we came here for our anniversary and was shocked at the service. They "opened" after lockdown yet everything was closed. They only allow 60 people in the pool at a time so majority spend half the time standing in a queue. To make things worse they lie on their website saying that the pool is managed by booking time slots. Don't lie to your guests and either open or don't open. This is such crap and a waste of people's money after a much needed holiday.

We have camped at Hartenbos ATKV resort for 18 nights over December 2019, and I must say that this was one om my poorest camp experiences ever. The resort is just dust and stones and you have to battle with 10Amp power to your caravan. This is not even enough to boil a kettle in your caravan. All the grass are dead as they do nothing to the campsites during the year and then you must come and sit in the dust and stones and thorns for the full December holiday and do more trips to your power box and back as you constantly need to go and put the power back on. We were so disappointed in the whole experience that I have cancelled my booking for this year December, as I am not going to put myself through such a bad experience again. The problem is that Hartenbos has become too popular for its own good, and the feel feathers for the holiday goers and their experience there.

Hartenbos caravan park is an excellent beach resort. One of the best in S.A. With the new upgraded ablution blocks they compete with the best. Well done ATKV. with this big effort. Keep up with the good friendly service and cleanliness on a high standard.

Possibly the worst 'slapgat' customer service in South Africa. First for us.
2 weeks ago we booked and pay for 7 nights in one of their fully equiped units.

Since they took the full payment we have not received any confirmation or documentation (In two weeks)

We have tried endlessly to phone their listed number but to no avail just no answer on it ever. Either their reception staff is just plain 'slapgat' or the phone number doesn't work.

We contacted their central reservations who could not assist us. This after paying close to R5k for 7 nights out of season and now with no confirmation or method of communication on their part

What is worrisome is that we have booked plane tickets, rental car and some activities in the area yet we have no clue as to what is happening with the fully book and paid accomodation Hartenbos ATKV

Emails to them also went unanswered

Sounds seriously dodgy (or slapgat) to us at the moment.

As said two week no form of getting hold of them via phone or email and no one is getting back to us

I had the privilege to take my Mother who is 73 years of age to ATKV Hartenbos and both of us enjoyed it very much.

We stayed in a cosy and lovely self-catering bungalow and made use of the ablution blocks which was super clean.

From arrival to departure our stay was a delight and we will definitely recommend the bungalows and the resort to all who are interested.

We will be back for another affordable holiday!

Thank you for making our stay a memorable one.

Regards,

Anneke and Annekie

We spent 4 days here recently and found the resort to be fantastic. One can park your car and basically only use it again when you leave. Everything you need or want is within walking distance. Great beach, great restaurants, fantastic service. Well done all.
