Fun weekend

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 01 Feb 2021
Had a very nice 30th birthday weekend. the fake sea, the supertube, waterslides, and the indoor heated pool was amazing. The shop is full of all the necessary things you can think about, and the prices is very good. The fast foods was delicious.
Staff were very friendly.

Our little house were very spacious but not very neat. The carpets is very dirty, looks like it has been washed more than a year ago. The toilets did not flush properly. Bit disappointing.

Fake advertising . The paddle boats - They said it is very risky, so they stopped it. There are no bicycle rentals, they stopped that. Kids were disappointed when they heard there were no rentals as on the website advertised.

People were partying right next to us with loud music, management did not even bother to make them quiet, after a phone call after 10 then the music stopped, but the people were extremely loud. No music were allowed.

Fun weekend but not what I expected

Wawielpark has many options for accommodation from a romantic getaway for 2 or a family of 28. Yes, they have a 28 sleeper unit, comprising of 8 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, a huge kitchen with an even bigger lounge and dining area. Even though it was a long weekend, we negotiated a largely discounted rate. Most bedrooms had bunker style beds, and you have your own private braai area. The resort has a few pools, including one indoor for stay in visitors only and also slide pools. The vaal river runs through, with options of fishing and paddle boats. Also they house some animals for the kids.

The are two honeymoon units on the banks of the river situated next to one another with their own private garden and braai area. Well equipped with everything you need, excellent bedding and nice jacuzzi upstairs to relax. Very clean as well. The shop sells everything you can think of. There is a lot of campers that fish. Few animals including lions. Will definitely return in summer to make use of all the facilities.

Offering a make believe sea, supertube, waterslides, heated and coldwater pools, pony and camel rides meant that the kids were very entertained during our stay. The ablution blocks were very clean, modern and spacious. The camping areas lack a bit of shade on the A13-16 side. Day visitors are allowed at this park, many campers would find that off putting, but there are certain areas that are just for guests. The shop is stocked full of necessities. The restaurant serves delicious food. The staff is very friendly.

We checked in on a Thursday night and it was great. We were three families with kids and we booked to sites which had a beautiful view of the river. The site was clean and the facilities were also very clean. It was really a week-end. I will definitely recommend Wawiel for kids as there is just too much for them to do. Also the entertainment. Will really go back again.

Our group of 10 family & friends went camping for the weekend. This included 4 kids. The campsite has new ablution facilities - these are of a very high standard. Modern & clean. The campsites are well marked, with electricity & either grass or paved. The sites are large, we pitched 5 tents on 3 sites with ample space for the gazebos & vehicles. The facilities at Wawielpark are good; lots of swimming pools & activities to keep the kids (and adults) entertained. The shop is well stocked. The restaurant's food is of good quality. The place is well maintained & access controlled.

Room tip: If you book early you can get camp sites on the river front.
