I, unfortunately, only staid at Oceana for one night but will definitely have to go back. The setting is spectacular, the rooms spacious and luxurious and the service absolutely impeccable - from welcoming, to granting special requests to the custom bath that is drawn as part of turn down service. All staff are very friendly and helpful. Could not recommend it more.

Room Tip: The lodge suites have a nice view already, but if you want unobstructedocean view and the reserve, o...

What a truly delightful experience! My wife and I could not be more pleased in choosing Oceana for our 25th anniversary. In a day and age where service mediocrity rules, Oceana shatters that norm and delivers an experience that left us both extremely pleased and grateful. The dramatic ocean views from the balcony, the stunning room, the delicious food and the ever helpful staff all amounted to as perfect an experience as one could hope for. We loved it!

Room Tip: Try to get an Ocean Suite - we had a Lodge Suite and were able to transfer over to an Ocean Suite. I...

The perfect setting to just get away from it all.
10 out of 10 to the staff, they are extremely welcoming and really go out of their way to cater your every need.
The only disappointment was that we were not informed that the spa treatments had to be booked in advance.

Room Tip: The ocean suites are perfectly private and spacious

Hi Natasha

Thanks so much for the kind words and I'm really glad out enjoyed your stay with us. You don't have to book spa treatments in advance but if you want a specific time it is recommended as the spa does get quite full. Hopefully you'll be able to experience the spa next time!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Oceana Beach & Wildlife Reserve in September 2017. This is a "best of both worlds experience" as you have the sea and wildlife to enjoy. We had a fantastic time and we were truly spoilt. The ocean suite, view from our room, food, staff members, service and pampering, all excellent.
