Fish River Sun Hotel & Country Club Resort
Ranked #6 of 6 Hotels in Port Alfred
Reviewed 24 December 2015 via mobile

We've been to fish river sun many times over the past years and although it is not a typical hotel experience it is one of our favourite places to go in South Africa. The accommodation is very spacious- it could do with an update especially the carpets- but the rooms are kept immaculately clean and are very well equipped with air conditioning throughout. Although access to the beach isn't close there is a shuttle that runs between the hotel and beach. You can also walk along this route (allow for allow 15-20 minutes) or take a more scenic walk via the trail towards the bat cave. The food is nice and there is always a big variety (our rate included dinner and breakfast) but if you prefer self catering then the rooms do have a kitchenette and there are communal braai areas and port alfred (20 min drive away) has a number of shops. Do expect a family resort experience. The pool is beautiful and pristine. We don't play golf but the golf course is stunning. The biggest draw card is the beach at fish river which is one of a kind with kilometres of soft sand and dunes to walk along. Be sure to stop at Port Alfred to get a license to pick up shells because you will find the most incredible shells on this beach.

Stayed for 5 days with the family. We had a really great stay. The hotel is really clean and tidy with really impressive service. The food was fantastic with good variety at both breakfast and dinner. Lots to do for the kids. Will definitely return soon.

Wonderful to visit this venue. Golf cart available to take guests down to the sea. It is a scenic drive that goes between the golf course. There is a small bar that sells the coldest beer in the Eastern Cape. Sitting drinking a beer looking at the sea.

The Famous Champagne Breakfast is just Fabulous and well priced...especially as you are getting it ALL....everything your heart can desire.. A melody of fruits, hot breakfast, porridge, cereals, pastries, to the deserts of waffles with sprinkles, even an adult favourite... And nor to mention the "Champagne'...it's a delufhr to feed your eyes on and it's just a 'feel-good' experience...

We had a Nomads Golfing event at the hotel and golf club> It was lovely, weather was excellent and the hotel was amazing. The hotel pool area is lovely. There is a lot of places to go and see I Port Alfred, we went on a cruise up the river, and went to lunch in Bathurst> We had a lovely stay

Room Tip: A Room overlooking the pool and Sea
