We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had one night and morning without hot water on our first night . This was reported twice before it was fixed the next day. ☹️.

Other than that the facilities were clean and well maintained.

We went to Brenton Haven Beach Front Resort for our Honeymoon and it was everything we wished for and more. We wanted to have a local Honeymoon due to covid-19 and all of the international travel restrictions. Looking back it was the best decision we could of made. If we could choose over and there was no restrictions we would not have changed a thing. That was one of the best Holidays we have ever experienced. The resort is VERY clean and neat and well looked after. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful and always there to make you feel at home. Thank you Brenton Haven Beach Front Resort! You will definitely see us in the near future.

I stayed on 2 occasions (1 bedroom suite and 2 bedroom suite), beautiful location and resort as well.
Stunning views of the ocean and sunsets from the suites.
Service was very good in general, rooms very clean with modern finishes etc.
We will definitely return for an extended stay next time around.

Our fourth December holiday at BH was just as well managed, maintained and perfect as the first one. First class accommodation next to the best beach in the Garden Route. Definitely a must visit when in the Garden Route

Did a last minute booking when we arrived to eat breakfast a the restaurant. Pleasantly surprised by the spaciousness of the suite. I was expecting just a room, but this was so lovely that we were disappointed that we were only staying one night. Will definitely be back. The staff are friendly and really helpful.

Stayed as a family of 5 at the Brenton Haven villas and it was a great experience!
Great Villa with good amenities and superb service as well.
Very clean and comfortable and spectacular view of the ocean.
Great food at the Butterfly Blu restaurant, however service was quite slow. Really works up an appetite while you wait for the food 😀.
Will definitely recommend this to my fellow travellers!

Wonderful hotel super clean with lovely views. Our Luxury Suite is beautifully equipped with mini kitchen. Ate breakfast which is very nice, not buffet which was a pleasant surprise. Good choice never the less. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The pool is well maintained with a number of sun beds. All in all a beautiful place to stay.
