Travellers' Choice
Blue Whale Resort offers fully equipped self-catering chalets, with abundant space between units that are perfect for social distancing requirements. The Private Nature Reserve, located on the seafront, is only 10km from George central, 13km from George Airport, and only 6km from the N2. Whales can be seen during winter months and dolphins year-round from the comfort of your veranda. It is also one of the best fishing spots in the area and numerous fish species can be caught from the rock beach. Herold's Bay and Victoria Bay are approximately 12 & 18 km away and offer safe bathing. A variety of indigenous birdlife can be observed while walking/cycling on the short hiking trails through indigenous forests and fynbos. The ten chalets are identical, 8 with a beautiful sea view and a nice privately situated setting and 2 chalets situated a little further from the ocean and the rest of the chalets - ideal for large families and also usually less expensive than the other 8 chalets. The chalets and conference facilities are built on 10 hectares of land, zoned as a private nature reserve.

Cellphone network and data/ WiFi connection was close to non existent , but overall the place was 100, could definitely go back and hope for better cellphone network and WiFi, although southern cape seems safe, safety assurance for visitors is key provided we come from crime ridden places,

Thank you for your valuable feedback! Regarding the Wi-fi and signal, it is not advertised online due to the inconsistency. The Wi-fi works with a direct line of sight, so the further the signal travels, the weaker it gets. Our top units generally provides better as it is not too far. Kindly inform me next time and I will gladly book you in the chalet with the best connectivity. Only our guests have the codes for the main gate to access. Please feel free to visit us again!

Really has everything going for it, place is off the beaten track, quiet, views are fantastic, chalets are clean, chap comes around every third day to clean out the fireplace, great spot to get away. Only detractions that can be mentioned is the lack of inconsistent wifi signal, what exasperates the situation is MTN reception is not all that fantastic either, they offer you access to their reception wifi, but if you can get it to work there, then you should be able to get it to work at the chalets, but having said that, not everyone wants to be in range so to say. All in all a great stay, thank you.

Thank you so much for your valuable feedback. We are happy when guests can share the same enthusiasm we have for the resort! Regarding the inconsistency, unfortunately our Wi-fi works with a direct line of sight. Hence the further the signal travels to the chalet, the weaker it gets. Therefore we do not advertise the Wi-fi. Perhaps we will see you next time!

This unit exceeded our expectations by far. It is all you need to forget the year past and recharge your batteries for the last part of 2021. The view is breathtaking and to have the privilege of see a big school of dophins going past 3 times in 1morning was awesome. The unit is well equipped and staff friendly. Dont drive past go in and experience this jewel.

My and my husband went to this resort for our honeymoon in November - If you are looking for a place that is private, never runs out of fire wood, ocean view and friendly staff, this is the place for you. We stayed a week and we will definitely return in the near future. Thank you so much Blue Whale resort for making our stay perfect!!

The chalets that overlook the ocean are absolutely amazing. Beautiful vistas from a large porch from were you hear and see the ocean below. the chalet is also well appointed and clean with everything you could need. It is also close enough to the N2 to not be to far out of the way, but far enough so you have absolute peace and quiet. Most Garden Route activities are also less than an hour's drive.

Linen was dirty and smelly, bathroom was leaking, they was used tissues under the bed. The location is great and has nice views, however the rooms need a serious upgrade and the cleanliness needs to be looked into, I wouldn't recommend it and wouldn't be returning for a stay.

We`ve been to many resorts before, but this one exceeded our expectations - it really ticks all the boxes when it comes down to guest satisfaction. We even extended our stay. It`s a good destination if you`re looking for a combination of adventure(lots to do in and around the resort) and tranquillity(very peaceful and perfect for some self-time) We recommend this resort without a doubt!
