We stayed at Merry Pebbles for local mountain bike race. We have been here many times. Disappointing that there is no longer heap of off-cut wood from local saw mills to make fire. The wood sold at the local shop is not great for braai - while the supplier packaging states "good for braai" and sold as "hardwood" it is...

This was our 1st time at Merry Pebbles, and it was amazing! Whilst the resort was quite busy, we never felt like it was overcrowded. The kids had an incredible time and we barely saw them as they rode around on their bikes all day, every day. Having a heated pool in the chilli Sabie weather was great. The ablutions...

Hi Tamryn, The fact that Merry Pebbles is situated on a relatively flat site makes it ideal and safe for children on their bikes etc. We have conciously reduced the number of sites we let out as when we hired out all 200 sites the resort became unmanageable. So glad you enjoyed your well deserved break. Regards Walter

A beautiful resort worth visiting, clean and highly recommended, surrounded by the most gorgeous mountains and the Sabie River offering Trout to an amateur angler, definitely recommendable. A wide variety of waterfalls in the area makes this a good stopover to view nature’s treasures.

Wow what an awesome place to stay with the family. The facilities were clean, the staff were so friendly and the grounds were well maintained. We really enjoyed our stay in the mini plettenberg's and found them to be perfect for our family of 4. We will definitely be back.

Our family of four stayed for 3 nights. The rooms were extremely small (luggage had to be put in the lounge area) and no grids for the braais were supplied. Units are cleaned daily, but dishes are not done - very odd. Apart from that, everything was 'fine'. I won't be suggesting the resort to anyone as a holiday destination...

Hi ElsjeBee, Thank you for the feedback, we appreciate the constructive criticism. FYI the braai grids are at reception and the staff member on duty must have neglected to inform you of this. However we appreciate all crits particularly when not glowing. Regards Walter Comley

We stayed at Merry Pebbles for 3 nights just before the start of the public school holidays and absolutely loved it - my kids are already asking when we are going back. We camped and were lucky to have one of the riverfront sites, but many of the other sites also looked wonderful and I would not be massively disappointed...

What an amazing setting on the Sabie river with loads of trees and lawns. Perfect for kids and families - heated and cold pools, slides, jungle gyms, old putt putt course, outdoor chess, tennis courts, villeyball etc etc. Reminded me of Spearfish canyon in the states. Plettenburg units small and quaint could do with a bit of new linen. Otherwise,...

We enjoyed the resort. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. The chalet is too expensive for what you get. The size of the 4 sleeper is ridiculous small. The kitchen area is pathetic.
