Location is nice but room was run down and smelled of stale smoke. We asked for a different room as resort was clearly not fully booked. Where told it was not possible as they had a conference going. We did not see any activity in many cottages around so had to assume this was an excuse not to do anything.
We recently visited Blyde Canyon Forever resort and wow.... We were so impressed and definitely cant wait to go back. Perfect location, friendly and helpful staff, lovely accommodation. Property is beautiful well maintained and clean.
We came for 2 nights this July 2022 with our children. Very secure place. Chalet was very confortable and clean, spacious, everything we needed. View points on the 3 roundavels are stunning. We did not go to restaurant.
Blyde Canyon, A Forever Resort is situated at a Great location, awesome views of the canayon and the Three Rondawels. The food at the Restaurant was great, especially the curry. Staff was friendly and efficient. Chalet was comfortable.
Resort was neat and tidy. Ablutions need to be cleaned either late at night or early morning as they were unacceptable in the morning. Caravan sites are very uneven and need to be leveled or paved. Resort shop was well stocked.
This resort did not disappoint. On our arrival at the gated and secured entry we were provided with keys and a map to our building. The resort is a sprawling facility of house style accommodations. Ours was a duplex style house so we had one side and the other was for someone else (who we could not hear at all). Our domicile had a small living room, dining room, kitchen area that included a stovetop, refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom was large and the bedroom had a huge window with a great view. We were there in May and it was cold, however, the bedroom was equipped with a heating unit. A semi short walk from our building and we were at a spectacular lookout position of the Blyde River Canyon. It was breath taking. There were also hiking trails (and a swimming pool and miniature golf) but were there for only one night and did not explore those options. The restaurant was on the other side of the facility and it was very dark as we drove there. It was spacious and had a nice feel (and probably a nice view if it wasnt pitch black outside) but the food was simply average. The buffet may have been better but we ordered of the menu. Also, if you are coming from a city, you may be used to a faster pace. Where were were, things were slow including table service. As we only had wifi at the restaurant, we drove there again in the morning and were treated to seeing about 20 baboons in the area around the restaurant. There was apparently fruit in some of the trees and they were also having breakfast. Note: Do NOT feed the animals. It may seem cute or fun but they will become aggressive if it looks like you have something they want. Also be sure your cars is locked and the windows are up. There is a gas station, small shop and an ATM where you turn to drive toward the resort.…
We stayed in the 6-bedroom villa for one night, and we were kicking ourselves for not planning a longer stay at this resort. The villa is gorgeous, rooms are huge and well furnished with stunning views from living room and bedrooms. The balcony, deck with jacuzzi had even better views and ample space for an outdoor party. We ordered some takeout dinner from their restaurant across the road which was very good. We didn't have much time to explore the area but we will certainly return to this place in the future for a longer stay.
It was very clean and had Wonderful views. The campsite was very spaceships. We had a great time the campsite all that is needed . The monkeys were a bit of a problem if you left any food outside. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Lovely stay in the 6 sleeper units. The units were clean, spacious and neat. Would recommend it to anyone with an adventurous heart. We had an amazing sunrise experience at the upper viewpoint. Just look out for the Baboons. Don't leave any doors open.
The resort could not have a better location. It provides access to the best trails in Blyde Canyon, in particular, to the Leopard and Kadishi Tufa trails. Unfortunately, this enormous advantage makes of this place a monopoly with few incentives to improve. Firstly, you should know that this is a gigantic place offering camping and room services for a very large population of tourists. We stayed at cabin #74. It looks like the room hasn't seen an uplift in decades, but that's not an issue for us. We are also aware of the affordability of this price, so this is expected. But the food... it's barely preferable to hunger. I can honestly say, without a bit of exaggeration, that the Kadishi restaurant is one of the worst 3, if not the worst, I have ever been to. Nothing is good. Not even the coffee. We ordered a cheesecake. Terrible. We gave them a second opportunity with the dinner buffet. The chicken was bad, so we tried the beef. Then we realized that the chicken was the star of the menu. The side dishes, vegetables, potatoes, rice, everything was cooked with no soul. In general, that's how I feel about the resort. No soul. No love. Looks like a government operation. With so much potential, it's a shame that they don't do something truly outstanding with this place. Perhaps it's the sheer size of the grounds, which look not ideal from an economic perspective. Whatever it is please fix it. Change management. Do what is needed. Treat tourists with respect.…
