This is my second time at Mpekweni, its appeal is that it has a ocean, river, lagoon and great pools plus all facilities you can think of. Massive breakfast and lunch buffet and lovely lunch poolside menu makes you keep on smiling.

Few things that can be improved: Please add a line to dry swimming clothes in the bathroom. Also, even though I asked, they did not separate (place all pork dishes together, or have a small pork/bacon indicator). This would have also been ideal for the many Jewish clientelle and Muslims as well.The PRO programme this year seem to fizzle out in the last few days. Also, the Memo club was not consistently manned during operational hours

Otherwise, amazing place !!

Room Tip: Choose top floor when choosing luxury family rooms

Good location overlooking a great beach and down to the sea. Enjoyable Buffet with a wide range of starters, main courses (including various roast meets and fish) and puddings. Not as many dishes, though, as we had experienced since we last visited some six years ago. Reasonable service standards by friendly staff. Reasonably priced. Pre-booking recommended but definitely worth a visit.

Room Tip: Did not stay but went for lunch only.

Hubby and I have stayed at many, many different resorts and hotels and Mpekweni is definitely one of the very best. Colin and Nicolette are absolutely amazing hosts and seem to have the winning recipe. Staff are so friendly and polite and nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are cleaned, and serviced every day. The food is to die for...there is just too much to choose from! We stayed for 3 days and were sad to leave. Thank you to every single person who made our stay so wonderful. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms around the pool if you enjoy naps in the afternoon. Rooms near the bottom with sea views are the best.

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
