On our way from Port Alfred, we stopped by here for breakfast. Oh my gosh I have never seen such a wide variety of food for breakfast. I ate until my stomach hurt. There was all sorts of food & drinks, even champagne!
After such a big breakfast, we spent the whole day enjoying ourselves by the pool side and basking in the sun. It was such an amazing time!

The most luxurious accommodation. Very spacious. Most beautiful beach, all to yourself. Great food. Luckily a gym with the most beautiful view to work it all off. Very attentive staff and service. Staff went beyond the call of duty to accommodate all requests. Game drives are average. Stay for a few days.

Room Tip: The Ocean House. 3 en-suite rooms that each look like honeymoon suites. Also large living area, big...

What a great experience and rest! We didn't want to leave!! The stay was just what we were needing. Everything was great, yummy food, friendly staff, luxury spacious rooms, excellent service, pampering spa treatments, interesting game drive, panoramic views etc. We will definitely be back soon - Thank you for spoiling us like you did.

Our room was incredible...plush, relaxing,wonderful.
The food was great. ONLY ... we were in room 1 and the dinning staff moved chairs above us and woke us too early. It appears to be wooden floors above us... something needs to be done about that issue. Otherwise, everything was wonderful...

Room Tip: No 4... right at the end of the boardwalk, or the big house....

Hi Elaine

Thanks for the kind words. The lodge suites can be a bit noisy and we are looking at a solution for these. Next time you visit I would highly reccomend one of our Ocean Suites as these are truly fantastic. We look forward to welcoming you back.

As the name suggest with Oceana Beach and Wildlife Reserve you get the best of both Worlds, you live in the Wildlife Reserve with its rustic authentic African decor and luxury and you embrace the sea views from your balcony. From arrival to departure was an unforgettable experience, one must simply experience to really understand honest, true, warm hospitality. Jordan must be named as being helpful, ever present and attentive. The food was delicious at every sitting, breakfast lunch and dinner. The Chef is a big plus factor and I can honestly say a binding factor, as good food is always remembered. The game drive was also unforgettable and to see Black Springbuck, Sable Antelope and Njala a welcome sighting. The rooms are super luxurious with a bath and shower with bush and ocean views. To sleep on a good quality mattress always a bonus. Wine List is extensive enough to cater to every wine drinker's needs and the choice of other drinks welcomed. The snacks including some of the best biltong and dry wors I've tasted in years was grabbed with open arms, which allowed us to watch rugby in the games room, where a pool table adds to some late night enjoyment. All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful, attending to any request or need one may have. The drive from Port Elizabeth Airport was a bit dodgy, as there were roadworks during August 2016 but overall a scenic route. I can highly recommend this Mantis Collection establishment and was highly surprised to find out that they've been in existence for more than 5 years, as the Decor is well looked after, with a personal touch of customised chandeliers and wildlife paintings. Overall a memorable experience, one I will remember for years!

Room Tip: I'm sure any room at Oceana will be comfortable
