We had a wonderful three nights in this hotel. The grounds are well kept, the pool refreshing and the beach beautiful.
We braved the 28km hike to waterfall bluff which was tough but worth it. Unfortunately there was some confusion around the cost, the reception told us it would be R250 for two, but the guide expected R250 each.
Food is good and we really enjoyed our meal times, highlight was the steak, better than the seafood platter. We liked the fact that there was no cost to use the kayaks, and the guard helped us carry them to the estuary.
