Reviewed 11 August 2015

Mr. Lennox M. (duty - manager) and the staff were a very accommodating,friendly and considerate unit that has welcomed me and my family for the past ten years.

Provision is made for the sleepy-headed road traveller to the pound carrying tourist, since the rooms and cuisine are both world-class both in presentation and taste.

The reception staff have always been ready to go the extra mile to accommodate any queries or questions we may have had in the past.

Furthermore, we have always left Mpekweni feeling re-energized and looking forward to returning the following year on our annual family holiday.

Room Tip: All the rooms are very well appointed and tastefully decorated.

It is great to get feedback from our guests, more so when the review has met or exceeded your expectations even when I was away on business.

Lennox is truly a diamond and I will be sure to forward your comments on to him.

Thanks so much for taking the time in sharing your review with us.

we look forward to welcoming you back to the resort in the forseeable future.

Kind Regards

I stayed here for close on a week. Being the off-season we were almost the only guests for a few nights. Everyone in my group remarked on how comfortable the beds were. This is a lovely location with direct access onto a beautiful and usually deserted beach with spectacular sand dunes. Perfect for a relaxing stroll on the beach. This is my third stay at this resort- it is great. My only minor gripe is with the internet access. the 3o minute free access didn't last 30 minutes and is only available in the lounge. Not a big deal bit it did cause me a bit of inconvenience this time.

Dear Zotsha
Firstly, thank you for your patronage and the time that you've taken to share your experience with fellow Tripadvisor followers.We must point out that we do not have the necessary ADSL or ISDN lines on the property to allow us to subscribe to Wi-Fi. Despite numerous pleas to our national TELKOM this will not happen soon. So, we took the initiative and set up base stations on our property and various properties all the way to Grahamstown, some 100km away to connect to an ADSL line there, thus giving us internet connectivity at great speeds. Sadly, we have now also had to endure power outages which can be overcome on the property but not on the outlying farms which has a negative impact on our Wi-Fi. We are busy connecting these bases up to battery and solar power to overcome this challenge. Wi-Fi will be seamless regardless of power outages on your next visit.
Regards
Colin
