Simply wonderful.

We stayed here for 3 nights towards the end of our Garden Route tour to chill out. Whilst located about a 20min drive away from Knysna, the views were stunning, accommodation excellent, staff friendly and helpful. If you don't want to drive into Knysna, the resort can arrange a taxi at reasonable rates.The superb location offers direct access to the long, sweeping, quiet and clean beach of Brenton Bay. There is also a local bar/ restaurant within 3 mins walk of the resort if you fancy a change from the hotel food and bar, although these are very good in their own right.

Unfortunately we could only stay for one night but what we experienced was very good. Our "rooms" were perfect. The resort is located absolute fantastic with a nice view over the sea (not really from our room). The pool was very small and very warm. In this area improvement would be good for such a large resort. Diner in the Butterfly Blu restaurant was very good. Also improvement on the cocktail side. All over we can recommend the resort.

I last tried to eat here several years ago and had a horrible experience.
Wow! What a change!
We stayed for two nights and have a fantastic time.
Alison at reception was exceptionally helpful and the waiting staff who's names I have forgotten treated us like royalty.
We shall be back...

Room tip: The suites in the main nbuilding have a great view

I stayed on 2 occasions (1 bedroom suite and 2 bedroom suite), beautiful location and resort as well.
Stunning views of the ocean and sunsets from the suites.
Service was very good in general, rooms very clean with modern finishes etc.
We will definitely return for an extended stay next time around.

Room tip: Suites offer best views (Suite 1 and 4)

Reviewed 6 January 2020

We stayed as a family of four in a self catering unit. Our unit was neat and decently equipped with all we might need. One room has a great view while the other is a little poor. Bathrooms are very small! Some outdoor seating cushions would be a nice touch. Easy access to a small gym was nice and a stroll to the beach is within walking distance. There is a pool but it was heated, which seemed unnecessary in the height of summer as it was more like a jacuzzi than a refreshing pool. Restaurant service is not great but the food was. Resort made an error with our invoice upon departure and tried to charge us a whack more which we then had to dig out all documents and proof of payments before we left which was quite frustrating.
