Our family of 4 adults stayed in a 2-bedroom unit with 2 bathrooms, The unit was spotless, the furniture in great condition, comfy beds, nice big fridge, loadshedding light and nice outside braai area. We had everything we needed. The staff were lovely and very helpful especially by the water activities and restaurant. The restaurant on the property prepared tasty and real value for money dishes. The amenities were free except if you wished to SUP or have a tubing experience behind the speed boat. Worth paying for. We thoroughly enjoyed the resort, hikes at Ebb and Flow and surrounds, meals out at Wilderness village where we experienced delicious food at different restaurants. We can recommend Pomodoro and Blue olive. Timberlake Market was also a great surprise not to mention the Sedgefield Market on the Saturday. We will definitely go back to Baywater Village.

This wonderful resort is not visible from the N2 but we were pleasantly surprised when we entered the area. Very well maintained with neat cottages. The cottages are well equipped and very comfortable with verandas complete with a braai area. Very large trees abound with birdlife. Ample parking and a one- way road around the complex. We were a party of 3 and found it very relaxing indeed. For families with children the amenities are excellent. Swimming pool at the entertainment area, tennis court, miniature golf, cycling aswell as various water activities. The is a snack bar as well but service there leaves much to be desired. The resort staff are very helpful and pleasant at all times from the security at the gate all the way to the maintenance crew. Lizette at reception goes out of her way to help visitors. Always courteous with a big smile. Will definitely recommend as for a very busy or relaxing break. Close to Sedgefield with a Spar, Pick n Pay as well as Clicks. A pleasant drive to Wilderness, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay

Wow!! So much entertainment for the whole family! We were ushered out of bed early every morning by the kids wanting to try something new. Paddle boats, canoes, putt-putt, tennis, games room and even swimming. And every evening we would light a fire and watch the kids play on the grass and we will get a chance to put our feet up and enjoy a well-earned glass of wine. Truly a place we will visit again!! The shop was surprisingly reasonably priced, you could see they were not trying to make loads of money from our lack of planning😉 Chalet was extremely clean and tidy and maintenance showed up within 5 minutes of us calling reception. A friendly fairy arrived every day to do some cleaning. What more could you want?! Jip, will definitely be returning in the near future.

The unit we stayed in had one bedroom and a sleeper couch in the lounge. However, it was not very spacious so I guess if there had been more than just the two of us it would have been a bit crowded. The resort itself is clearly intended for families and could become a bit noisy if all the units are occupied with families with children. Location is excellent and the resort is well kept.

The chalets are like small versions of your own home. Always clean and it's easy to feel at home. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating. The resort offers activities to keep you busy as well as an entertainment program for the kids.

Our last holiday in South Africa for a while before heading to the UK for a few years so we thought we would use up our current time share points and booked into Baywater Village for a week. We have some adult chilfren popping in over the weekend. I never ever have any expectations of resorts looking like the pictures they post on social media so my expectations were neither raised nor lowered on arrival. Very friendly staff at every poi t of contact, from the gentleman at the gate to the reception to the bar tender.. They all deserve full points for friendliness and attending to any/all needs. On arrival at our 2 bed, 2 bath chalet, we found it to be not unpleasant and was very clean with all the necessary things we would need for a self catering stay. I was it at all unhappy with the chalet. It had definitely had its best years quite some time ago but it was OK, but not WOW! We went on walkabout to take advantage of the special at the bar/pool area and it was very clear that the current staff were trying to make do with an obviously shoe string budget. They were definitely trying to make what is now a rather well worn resort into something it cannot be unless the owners invest some money into some well needed renovations.. This is a resort stuck well and truly in the 1980's and needs to be renien into the 21st century. Don't get me wrong, it has a lot of fun things to do and enjoy, but they are all in need of an upgrade. I tried the pool, not great with the paint having long flaked off in many places and just ot inviting.. But it was functional. We have a week still ahead if us and I will update this post, but unless Cinderella's fairy godmother arrives with her magic wand, it's still going to be shabby chic.. Without the chic!

Lovely surroundings but water terrible which we should have been advised of. The water available in the kios by expensive. I thought free water should have been provided. Furniture needs some upgrading, showing wear. However, good facilities for children.
