Good room. Bad restaurant food and service

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Apr 2023
Room is nice and clean. Restaurant is a big no no. Food takes over an hour for a simple set menu, staff is untrained about what is served, and the food is really not remotely worthy of 1 star. Otherwise it is a pleasant place to sleep

    All of the staff are so, so friendly! From the people at reception, to the housekeeping and maintenance staff.
    There are a few things that need attention though ... general upkeep seems to be problematic. We booked 2 rooms and in both of them, within a couple of days the toilet seats were completely loose. The air-conditioner in my sons' room stopped working. Maintenance came to fix it, but later that night it stopped working again. Their main door also had some problems locking. The bases of the taps in our shower were completely loose.
    Our TV didn't work properly for the duration of our stay. We told reception about this when we arrived and again a couple of days later when someone came to ask if everything was working OK in our room but it was never fixed.
    The bar/lounge area is lovely and the drinks service is quick, however, it takes absolutely ages for food orders to arrive.
    Some other suggestions: the braais at the self-catering units should be under cover; a mirror in the main bedroom of the "superior family suite" would be great (the name is misleading by the way - the suite is quite basic, so not sure what's superior' about it); a fan or air-conditioning is needed in the 2nd bedroom of the self-catering and superior family suites where the tri-bunks are. These rooms are extremely stuffy and airless and in hot weather it becomes even worse.
    A "family-friendly" resort like this should also have some sort of guidelines about large groups, noise and alcohol consumption. Also about the use of hubbly in public areas.
    I know this sounds like a long list of issues, but despite all of this, we enjoyed our stay and would still return.

    Checked in for my sister’s bday after we went for a lovely game drive.
    Only for everything to be ruined by a dirty, blocked shower topped with bad service.
    They moved me eventually but even that was a fight.

    Wouldn’t recommend this place.

    Room tip: Prepare yourself for horrible service 😊

    Small hotel rooms, nice but frigid pool, service is not great definitely don't want to be there. Food is awful and you're trapped. Definitely don't buy the buffet. The hike is very nice. Spa is fine, massage was not very good.

    Visited with my family during the festive seasons and we had a lovely stay with so much to do (thanks to the GZ adventures, grate service and activities). The downside to this place is the service and the food ( there's no variety and if you order from the ala carte menu, you must be prepared to wait). They really need to improve there.

    Room tip: There are monkeys at the resort, although they try to keep them away. always be on the look out especially when you are at the pool area.

    The accommodation booked vs what we received was not the same, below standard and badly maintained. The facilities at the resturant and bar is good, however the service let them down due to untrained staff. There was a large function that resulted in our dinner not arriving after after an hour and us cancelling our order. A shame and a waste.
