"I was really diassappointed and did not enjoy my stay. The place is well located but so dilapidated and must be revamped. Our suite Palm, disaster..dark, unclean, no view of the dam due to long and uncut trees. The private jacuzzi...words fail me. there was a horrible smell almost like sewage. I would not recommnd it...total disaster."

"The place form the begging looked amazing. Friday evening As we approached the room we got strong odor of the septic tank. It was bad. There was no rest of the smell as pungent as it was from the weekend....We Made a small fire Saturday eve after the suggestion by Ingrid to use the wood on sale for R15 a bag, the fire place worked well till our neighbor on the next suite had a braai and the whole room filled with their smoke from the chimey attached to our unit on the outside, for 2-3 hours i had to open the windows and switch on the fan in winter next to the dam and vent the room. Obviously our clothes and everything reeked from the braai smoke smell."
