The location is very good being so close to the gate. The souther part of the park is wonderfull. The look of the Lodge is very nice. Unfortunately we were no impressed with the rooms or the food.

No suite just 2 rooms joined by a room with 1 couch! Rooms need upgrading! Price high for what you get! Will not be visiting again! Take Doom! Spiders in shower on arrival! Jaccuzi in one room but not enough hot water to fill bath!

Hi, we did enjoy our stay but the family room is very small and ideally should have two bedrooms and another bathroom. Regards.

I would like to advise my review into 2 categories. 1. Staff. 2. Facilities.
I personally think the manageress and staff of Pestana Lodge is Pestana's biggest asset. Their willingness, friendliness and kindness is something they can be proud of.
The facilities of Pestana need attention, on arrival the aircon of our room wasn't working but we were moved the following day to a new room. The deck outside the room needs attention due to rotten wood. The same could be said of the deck at the dining room, the wood needs to be oiled, there are loose poles in the handrailing and at one stage I was worried that the children could fall from the deck. The lights at the handrailing isn't in a good condition either.
But as I said the staff of Pestana made our stay pleasant and we will make use of Pestana Lodge in future.

arrived Friday evening and left Sunday morning. Rooms were fine, as well as service in general with attentive staff. Food was good. All organizational matters were handled perfectly. Nice and very cleanly setting. Sitting on the terrace sipping an evening drink and watching the animals down at the river was an exciting experience.
