All thanks to appalling staff attitude who do not even know what time their working day starts. You wonder who owns the place and their character when staff look so incompetent. Beautiful place however.

As per usual, absolutely thrilled with our stay (Third time round). Hospitality is par-excellence. Our hosts, Bugs and Ivan, have got entertaining down to a fine art. Thrilled with the personalised care and attention. The accommodation is highly appealing with the units being service daily, even on public holidays, ensuring utmost cleanliness. Little things that make a huge difference when on holiday are taken care off in an instant. The cherry on top are the excellent views of the estuary surrounded by mountains, which makes for the perfect peaceful getaway. The meals was of superb quality and served by the most friendly and efficient catering staff. Annette enjoyed the Spa immensely. Thank you for a wonderful stay and we will be definitely back in December. A must stay!!!

iNtaba proved to be a small piece of undiscovered paradise at the entrance to Port Saint Johns in KZN. Friendly, helpful staff. Very professional and personable owners assisted with an early check in and meal requirements. Situated on the river bank in absolute serenity where all one can hear is the sound of fish jumping nearby. Excellent dinners so well worth the eat in. Clean rooms and immaculate lawns.
