The Setting, Food, Staff and general service at Mpekweni Beach Resort is all of an extremely high standard! Friendly Staff are always on hand when needed and one never gets the feeling they are imposing on your personal space.
One criticism (I would like to note that the hotel and its staff cannot be held responsible for this however i would encourage prospective guests to inquire as to what conferences will be taking place during their stay) There seemed to be a few conferences/team buildings taking place during our two night stay. Government employees attending some sort of team building weekend were the pick of the bunch. Loud and Boisterous members of this group destroyed any peace and quiet around the pool area and any other area they found themselves in. They appeared to be drinking there own liquor that they had smuggled onto the premises and on one occasion whilst trying to read my book, one of the loud women had gone for a swim with a co-worker who was at best a novice swimmer. She then slipped into the deep end and started drowning. After rescuing her i did not receive any thank you whatsoever.
These conferences are obviously what keep the hotel in such good condition compared to hotels along the wild coast so i do understand their value but for a family or couple looking for a relaxing weekend away, this is not the place to be when large conferences are taking place.
