Having looked forward to our break for months we were very disappointed when we walked into our chalet. The kitchen units were rotten at the bottom, the drawer didn't close and the general cleanliness was off putting. The towels and tea towels smelt unwashed, along with the bed linen. The bathrooms smelt of urine, the shower door you couldn't see through it and the plug holes had thick black mould round them which I managed to get off with a lot of scrubbing, just to make us feel better when using the sink. The curtains had rips in them and I'm not sure the cushions in the living area have ever been washed. The freezer door all the rubber had come off so it didn't close properly. The setting of the Chalets are amazing with sea views over a beautiful beach and the pool area is lovely. This is not a 3 star, maybe 2 so don't come with high expectations

Thank you SouthAfrican2, for your valuable feedback. I would like to take this opportunity to apologise and assure you that the issues that you had during your stay, is not the standard that one should expect from our resort, as you can see from our previous reviews. I will definitely be looking into all of the problems that you experienced, to ensure that whatever issues the housekeeping and maintenance staff had, are rectified immediately and no problems of this nature arise in the future. Kind regards, Kerry Havenga - General Manager

Highly recommended - my overseas visitors were blown away. The Seaview was awesome, the proximity to the beach as well as eatery, a stones throw away. The accommodation and service was really very good
