My husband and I stayed there for 2 nights and had an awesome experience. Our room was on the beach front and offered excellent clean accommodation and wonderful sea and lagoon views. There was a large conference being held there but this did not impact on our stay in the slightest. The dinner buffet and breakfasts were absolutely delicious.The live entertainment at dinner time was the cherry on the top. Such talented singers. There are so many activities at the hotel to accommodate all ages. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful and in particular we'd like to thank Andy for going the extra mile to make our stay so enjoyable. From Mike and Ingrid Teubes.

Room tip: Beach front room

I have had the pleasure of accompanying my husband on a business trip. Whilst he is in a conference I have been able to really enjoy the peaceful environment. Our room faces the ocean and at night I am lulled to sleep by the ocean serenading me. What I am finding very pleasing is that this resort has not impacted at all on the beautiful environment. A dune hides the resort so when one walks on the beautiful flat sandy shoreline there is no intrusion at all.

One can tell that every care is taken from the extravagant luxury rooms to the budget accommodation. The staff are very efficient and friendly always eager to please.

The cuisine is absolutely delicious. Perhaps the offering for halaal could be more varied. The buffet breakfast and dinners are really sumptuous and an added treat is the live music which creates a very intimate ambiance. I love the seating areas interspersed in the dining area which allows one to relax and enjoy your desserts or just unwind.

This resort should be a great place to bring the family to. There is something for young and old. You can enjoy a game of putt putt , row a boat on the lagoon or play a game of pool. For the young ones there is even a play room.

My three nights have passed way too soon. Thank you Mpekweni Beach Resort for a memorable time!

This is a fantastic resort with great service and fantastic food in a beautiful setting. There are many types of accommodation to choose from and activities like canoeing, fishing, river cruise or just lying by the pool. Highly recommended for a weekend getaway or an extended holiday.

Room tip: Beachfront chalets are right on the lagoon and beach.

The location and setting is magnificent; however, the rooms, food and service is nothing out of the ordinary. Excuse me if I do not subscribe to the Mpekweni fan club and not swayed by the hype! As a three-star graded establishment, it meets the standard rating - good! Live music and local talent - quite good!
Stunning pool and relaxation deck, with magnificent views! Ironing facilities though is another experience, really requires improvement!

Room tip: Slept in an ordinary room, perhaps one should try the Executive Suites.

Dear Gcinuxolo Y
Thank you for your comments. The ironing room was set up upon request during your stay. We do not have ironing facilities in the room as guests tend to use the dressers as the ironing board, with disastrous results. We usually charge a small fee for pressing.
Regards

Colin
