There is lots to do for the children (beach, bike rides, swimming pool, kids club and canoeing/ paddle boats) and the parents get to have some well deserved quiet time within the peaceful and picturesque hotel...

Excellent and memorable adventure or experience . Hotel site is well positioned except when one have to visit the beach , in comparison to places such as San Lameer which they have their own private beach for security reasons.

Spent 2 days at this lovely resort, a hidden gem, will be going again. A good place for families. The beach by the resort is excellent with easy access from the hotel shuttle or a gentle 10 minute walk

I only spent one night at the hotel. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. Beds were amazingly comfortable. Television reception was poor. Most of the channels that was supposed to be available were not, which was a problem with 3 year old toddler since the children's channels were not available. The play area for kids are wonderful and the pool...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An idyllic location with breathtaking views of the estuary, sea, beach and breakers. A picturesque walk through the estate affords direct access onto Silver Beach, the main Port Edward bathing beach. The perfect setting for a romantic getaway, family holiday, conference, wedding or special occasion. Brides are spoilt for choice with a traditional wedding in our chapel, a relaxed ceremony on the beautiful garden terrace or an informal affair on the beach. A nursery, play area and games room provide activities that the whole family can enjoy. Wild Waves Water Park at the Wild Coast Sun is a mere 5 minutes away by car and is a popular attraction. The hotel is a golfer's jewel with several prestigious golf courses nearby. There's lots to do or you may want to simply chill at the pool, hang out at the beach or indulge your senses and be pampered at the spa. ... more   less
