Fish River Sun Hotel & Country Club Resort
Ranked #6 of 6 Hotels in Port Alfred
Reviewed 18 January 2015

At Fish River Sun you can do what you like with big rooms and lots of activities. The down side was that the hotel was stuck in the 80's! The design was by Sol Kerzner, but most Sun International are like the 80's. There is a river for canoeing and a great 18 hole golf course. The buffet was great and dessert were fantastic! For kids every December there was a game room full of Xbox 360, Wii's, PS3 and PS2. The rooms were comfortable and quiet big! The pool area was great and relaxing! The bar looks modern and its great to watch sport there. I suggest you to stay at the Fish River Sun!

This hotel turned out to be the most dissapointing of our entire trip. For the high price, the staff are generally rude, the service is poor and to top it all off the hotel is stuck in the 80 ' s. Decor and features are ancient. To quote the kids,"dad, the TV has something attached to it"..pathetic dinner management and staff was made bearable only by the polite chef who looked he was the only one making an attempt to be friendly. The on duty manager at the restaurant continued to stuff his face with food at his own private table whilst we were made to wait in the lounge whilst our query was dealt with. That kind of service is PATHETIC AND UNACCEPTABLE

Good accommodation for three star. Services are excellent for cleaning and restaurant. Hotel rooms are quaint but very clean . They are evironmentally conscious . Activities are vast for families with kids and teenagers alike. Shuttle service is provided every 20 minutes down to beach or river. The atmosphere is extremely relaxing. Lovely.

The hotel offers great leisure activities for the whole family. We enjoyed the great golf course, swimming pool, putt-putt, beach drive, games for the kids and just beautiful natural surroundings. The monkeys added a bit of excitement of their own for the kids. The food was excellent! The service could do with a bit more friendliness and helpfulness by the staff, especially when it comes to booking for meal times.
Overall, it was a very nice experience and we had lots of fun!

I was appalled by the slowness of getting a table at breakfast. We waited over an hour and a half, only to be confronted by the matradee by rudeness and animosity when asking on the progress of our table. The service in terms of turn around on the tables again was very slow. Placement of people to tables again was not good as two people were sat at an eight person, meaning larger groups did not have access to tables. I would not recommend this for a Sunday brunch!!!
