Awesome grounds & facilities, lovely activities - we would love to have stayed longer but it was jam packed full of fun. The pool was lovely - Mandla was our poolside waiter - he was excellent and Robert Pringle the resort Front Office Manager is someone whois most helpful, hands on and an excellent representative of your resort!

Honestly fell inlove with this place, the scenery is beautiful and the grounds well kept. The hiking routes were wonderfully marked which made our day out very pleasant.

The bed is honestly the most comfortable I've ever slept in and the unit was well equipped with all the essentials. I was also happy to see that the hotel is committed to a responsible water usage program ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

My only real complaint would be the television in the living room that was a little fuzzy. Other than that, AMAZING place!

This hotel offered a great break for a recharge. The grounds were vast, beautiful and well kept. The pool is heated and offers a large main pool, baby pool, and pool bar. The lake offered free activities and excellent birdlife. The site was somewhat steep for little ones, with the play gym and pool areas located down a steep hill from the hotel. The restaurant offered buffet half board with pizzas and lunch menus to supplement. The food was plentiful and of high quality, reasonably priced (+-R85 a meal) Pizzas were wood-fired and divine. The restaurant however was not child friendly. There were no plastic options for kids, no juice or water jugs available. They relied on adult supervision at all times. The terrace was open to the grounds so children could slip down to the pool area if unattended. Meal times were very tricky (despite a kids tv room adjacent to the restaurant). Good value for money but wouldn't recommend with pre-school children or weak knees.

I recently visited Drak Sun and wanted to do something different. We stayed in the Presidential suite which was amazing, the views from the balcony are magical especially when the sunrises. The food is amazing even though it’s a buffet and the team are very friendly and warm. I do understand it’s aged but that’s what makes it even more unique in a good way. As a couple I suggest staying in the presidential suite but if for a family visit maybe self catering. The hikes are fun and tests your fitness, make sure you try out canopy tours, it’s super fun if you are an adrenaline junkie. My wife and I enjoyed our first local holiday and totally recommend this place. The Gm Roger is such a friendly and warm person and constantly checked on us. I have never received that service anywhere while traveling abroad. Keep it up.
