Mpekweni Beach Resort
Ranked #4 of 6 Hotels in Port Alfred
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 January 2016

Given the value of the Rand against all other currencies, one is certainly tempted to stay home instead of going abroad. Mpekweni Beach Resort is certainly one's answer to Mauritius.
40 kilometres from Port Alfred, this resort is easily accessible by road from either East London or Port Elizabeth.
Upon arrival one is instantly impressed by the ambience of the place and the sweet odour of the milkwood trees. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff certainly makes one feel at home instantly.
Spending 5 days with my daughter, her husband and our grandchildren was certainly what we had hoped for. Great pool area, lovely beach area and a tremendous lagoon certainly contributed a great holiday.
There is certainly no shortage of entertainment for both adults and kids. Table tennis, squash, snooker and of course the Play Station 4 kept the kids busy. An 18 hole putt putt course, canoeing and facilities for some fishing were certainly a bonus.
The rates which included breakfast and dinner are very comparable with other similar facilities. The rooms are very neatly kept and serviced regularly.
In summary then, whilst the value of the rand is so bad, this resort will be my "Mauritius" for now. Great value for money!

We will be back for sure!!!!

Was there for 10 days. Beautiful, unspoiled expansive beaches, great lagoon and pool area. Photos don't do the place justice. Lots to do - something for everyone. Luxury Suite room was great and food was good too! Service to a high standard and very friendly, accommodating staff. Will definitely be back.

Great location. Great food. Friendly and smiling staff and student staff. Plenty to do. Definitely worth a visit.
Boat trip was so relaxing.
Walks around and on the dunes were fantastic.
Walks on the beach seemingly unending.
Deserts to die for.... every night.
Great value for money.

This is a true coastal diamond that fully caters for the needs of all members of the family. From reception through to the staff as well as the volunteers that assist with the kids activities this is definitley recommended. We came here last year and am back to the same quality experience.
