“Just amazing !”
Reviewed 3 March 2016

I have stayed in some wonderful hotels all over the world but this beats them all. From the minute you drive along the wild approach road to find 2 members of staff waiting to greet you to your first glimpse of the breathtaking ocean view you feel that this s a truly unique place. Superb room, lovely food , great staff in fact everything is perfect.
A special mention to the young intern who did the mini safari and was so knowledgable .
Nothing was too much trouble for her and the rest of the staff were great.
Just go , you won't regret it ! .

Oceana is a game and beach reserve. It is easily and safely accessible by air( Port Elizabeth or East London) and a short drive by car( good roads). Situated on the beautiful East Coast of RSA, it provides a perfect haven to game and wild birds. All the animals are in a very good condition. Management of the animals and vegetation is impressive.
Game is seen on the a perfect back drop of green hills and the ocean- unforgettable scenes.
Oceana provides access to unspoiled beaches, safe jogging/walking for kilometers and safe swimming.
The accommodation, sevices,meals are excellent. Meals on the beach are provided!
The staff is very professional, efficient and very friendly providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Oceana is an experience not to be missed!

I am a regular traveller (local and abroad) and have very high standards and set ideas about what a trip must offer me - a pleasant return on the investment of my hard earned money. From the time that I have send my first enquiry to the devastating time of my departure - the best service was rendered by the whole team. To try to describe the most beautiful beach, luxury of the suite, facilities and superb meals will not serve justice. Go and spoil yourself.

My husband and I recently spent two days at Oceana Beach Resort for our 15 year wedding anniversary. WOW ... I am battling to find words that can describe the magnificent location and amenities of this 5 star resort. EXCELLENT food, service and staff! Everyone was eager and helpful to make our experience memorable. We love this resort! A big thanks to the Resort for couriering my Ipad back to me when I left it behind. Exceptional service.

The service here is tops. Staff is friend,y and ensure a very private and comfortable stay. The views from the rooms are amazing, everything you need for a relaxed, out of the city buzz stay.
We also enjoyed the sunset game drive. Even though we did not see a variety of animals, the views and the pit stop was great.

Room Tip: Stay in the Big rooms with a shower over looking the ocean.
