I just want to rate Breeze Restaurant and not the rest of the Resort. Its really a nice setup, the outside area is really pretty and especially if you have kids wanting to play, the outside area is perfect. The food was really horrible.. we ordered schnitzels which we could not eat, the fish fingers were a weird greenish colour...

We stayed as a family of 4 at this resort for two nights on a bed and breakfast basis. We had interconnecting rooms. The rooms were just OK not that big and could have been cleaner. The shower wasn't good, the hot tap said cold on it and the shower was going hot and cold. On the first night we...

We have stayed at the Chalets and the Hotel and both are well equipped and well priced. The family orientated facilities are great for a family with young or teenaged kids. The food offering is also ok and at the chalets you can easily cater for yourself. (stay away from the BREEZE restaurant... service was shocking, although food was great)...

we went to stay at the River Resort cottages at Emerald Casino a couple of weeks' ago. We'd picked up one of those deals that gave you accommodation, vouchers for food, the aquadome and the animal park for a low price. Our feeling was that we were very glad that we'd gone on a deal and not paid full price,...

I stayed at the Emerald Resort during a business trip in May 2013. It was wonderfully relaxing, the rooms were quiet, clean, the internet worked flawlessly, and all the facilities were in good order. Definitely value for money, and I had a hard time not thinking that I was on holiday.

The Emerald Resort and Casino is very close to our home and so if we have visitors especially from overseas it is somewhere nice to take them. There is a Safari Park with lots of animals, a Water World for kids, amusements for all ages. Good restaurants from upmarket to fast food. I haven't stayed in the Hotel or Lodges...

Was in South Africa on business and stayed at the Emerald. The staff was excellent and the breakfast was incredible. Room was clean and very nice. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Arrived here late Monday night to find wrappers under the luxury slipper bath, clearly cleaning was not very thorough the day before.
