A quick visit to Wilderness turned into a magical getaway staying at this gem! Gorgeous bedrooms, so well appointed. Luxurious bathrooms, spotlessly clean with soft fluffy towels and beautiful linen. Excellent service and a great breakfast. Unbeatable position.

Modern, friendly and warm- hearted b&b with a spectacular location on the beach first row. Direct beach access and a spacious terrace allow you to stay 24h a day without a thought of leaving. The helpful and friendly staff is the icing on this 5star cake. We will be back!

This hotel was first rate. Excellent rooms, attentive and friendly staff. We enjoyed the breakfast too not least because we were able to watch Dolphins from our table aided by the complimentary binoculars (a nice touch).

The location of the hotel on the beach is stunning. The staff are also excellent and cannot do enough for you. Breakfast on the terrace looking out to the beach is worth the stay on its own. Don't miss it you will have a woderful time.

It's your private beach. Good services. It's not far from the George airport. Safety at night, you can find a good restaurant nearby. My wife likes their shampoo & conditioner very much. Looking forward to be there again.
