We had an amazing relaxed time. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. It was the perfect break from city life. The premises are well kept and clean. We loved the pools and next time we would like to try out the rock pool. We will definitely go back again!

Please note this is sadly no longer a 4 star establishment. The campsite is far from the ablutions which definitely require an upgrade!! The ablutions, including showers are used by the day visitors. The septic tanks, close to the restaurant are extremely smelly. Despite the above the management is friendly and helpful and they have advised that they are in...

This was an extremely enjoyable holiday, at a competitive rate. We came looking for peace and quiet and that's precisely what we got. The property is ideally situated, away from traffic notice. The staff is friendly and helpful.

I enjoyed that the food was fantastic and the waiters answer staff were very helpful, running all the way to the far end of the pool to serve you quickly. Fantastic. Dogs had a great time too. Highly recommended.

Hornbill Lodge, (Legends Steakhouse) is a beautiful piece of property set alongside the Magalies River. They offer a superb food menu and are open everyday. You can also book a massage which is set on a deck above the river on the bank. Service is great, and only issue was the bar. They don't keep a wide variety of alcohol....
