Fish River Sun Hotel & Country Club Resort
Ranked #6 of 6 Hotels in Port Alfred
Reviewed 6 August 2017 via mobile

While the hotel and grounds are lovely, the room spacious, the supper delicious and the breakfast divine - all with excellent customer service - this is 2017. So to be told upon booking that there is no wifi in the rooms was surprising. To be then told that the wifi in the bar/restaurant was free only for the first 50mb - well, that's just ridiculous. Fast food places offer this service, not internationally-renowned, premier-prices resort hotels! The last face slap? The pay your way games machines in the bar offer the same games one can have on your mobile to keep the kids occupied. Even the staff to whom we spoke think this is silly - so sort it out.

We booked into a 2 bedroom Villa across the road from Fish River Sun for a Nomads Golfing weekend. The unit was clean and neat. Service was excellent. Housekeeping were friendly and efficient. Fully equipped units with a braai. Swimming pool on site.

Delicious breakfast. I was expecting it to have "gone down" due to reading a few negative reviews, however I thought it was a really good quality Champagne Buffet Breakfast for R155 per person. The staff are friendly, attentive and went out of their way to ensure good service. The tables are very neatly kept and I was not disappointed. It's great as a treat as its obviously a bit pricey but in my opinion worth the price.

Room Tip: Go relatively early for the breakfast

The hotel is clean, quiet, well serviced, 30km from shops etc....
The golf course seems nice enough, the views are great, the beach is 10 minutes walk depending on your fitness, it is a friendly environment and has a conference facility.

While there we had a Karate Competition and a School rugby team in the venue.

Nice to have a quiet drink or a little fun with friends and party into the small hours.

Kids loved the environment and the "lifts"to the beach, it felt safe and comfortable.

Room Tip: get a room on the ground floor if you have kids facing the pool

It is a little out 'in the middle of nowhere' but once we were there and settled we didnt need to leave. It really is ideal for groups looking to spend the majority of their time on the golf course. Despite the drought it is still in decent condition and very beautiful. The pool is lovely if the sun is shining. The food was all inclusive and a very good range of buffet.
