The whole resort is always well maintained and very safe for the whole family.
Kids get to meet other kids and play with them, swimming in the pool or riding bikes or playing cricket or soccer around the resort.
There is a shop there to stock up in any small items you may have left behind but the resort is also close to a shopping centre which is just up the road.
There is plenty space to park boats and the shoreline is clear of any debris that may damage your boat. Papers are checked and we feel safe on the water.
The only negative we had was people blasting music till 3am when the rules are that is must be quiet from 11pm. Even when security approached them at 1am to quieten down, nothing was enforced and we endured a long noisy night with no sleep.
Other than that all staff are super friendly and accommodating and there are cleaners on stand by for a small fee if you don't feel like washing up after a braai.
We visit the Pont often and its always a family favourite as we can enjoy the dam and the beach as well as sta d up paddle boarding up river as its closed off to boats.
We enjoyed the riverside facilities and going for late night walks around the resort. The kids were able to 'escape' from mom and dad on their bikes and explore the resort, only checking in when they were hungry or thirsty. As we didn't bring our own skiboat, we jumped aboard Argy Bargy, the resort's 'river taxi', for a trip to the beach to do some fishing, which was an experience that the kids loved. Our skipper, Cameron, was a very pleasant chap and you can see he loves his job!
With uninterrupted power from the resort’s generator, and stable water supply from the resort's boreholes, we didn't have to worry about the woes that affected so many other South Coast areas.
24-hour security patrols (by what must be the friendliest and pleasant security staff I've ever met) really does mean that you can relax. We slept with windows open, bicycles and fishing gear left outside, and never gave it a second thought. Anita, Chantelle, and Annelie form the office were always very helpful and friendly, even when they were swamped with kids wanting Slush Puppies.
We were very sad to leave after a week of just chilling and returned home feeling recharged!
Well done to all the resort staff for keep the place so immactulately tidy and safe.
The park in general is well maintained, the upgraded kids play area is looking amazing.
The shop stocks a nice range of those little things you may have forgotten or run out of and the kids absolutely love the slush puppies.
The restaurant is independently run, and I am aware that the new Management team are working on correcting their service levels.
If you looking for a family getaway this is the place to go.
The water tanks situated near the ablutions kept overflowing and our campsite was flooded multiple times every day and night which resulted in everything being constantly wet and muddy.
The ablutions often had no hot water which meant that we had to shower in cold water most of the time.
There were a high number of dogs roaming the resort without their owners and twice they "messed" in our site. We found this unhygienic and unpleasant.
Unless some serious improvements are made in this resort, we will not be visiting again.
