This place was a bit over the top for us, but we tried to enjoy it as best we could. The dinner menu was not really to our tastes and we ended up going out for each of the 3 nights we were there. The staff were very friendly and the meals that we did have there (breakfast) were

Dear Tony M Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor after your recent visit to Hunters. I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed the friendliness of the staff and staying in the perfect location to enjoy all parts of the Garden Route. We have three restaurants on the property of Hunters, each with it's own particular style. Sage restaurant, which is our fine dining option, The Conservatory, that offers an Anglo Italian influenced menu and Zinzi's elegant Bistro style dining offering our own signature from dishes from all around the world. kind regards Peter Dale

In South Africa you are much better off using Uber. They are cheaper and more reliable. We had a car to get to and from however we did see other guests using Uber.

2 things here, have an alternative plan for Shark diving. I booked in 2 different cities and everything was cancelled due to unpredictable ocean. S.A. is known for unpredictable weather so things may look great and then be cancelled in short notice. 2nd, there is no spa on hand however the concierge can arrange for a masseuse to come directly to your room. It was affordable and the rooms are serene enough to relax.

How far is it to the Robberg Nature Reserve?
Plan between 15-20 mins to get there. As for the reserve, you can spend 1/2 a day there easily. Make sure to pack snacks or a light lunch as there is nothing around. It's 100% worth the stop however.
