                      When booking a place at that price, we did expect much & went with an open mind.Good: Staff was friendly, even though we arrived late, they helped us out with the keys & rooms with all possible info.Key deposit was returned in time. Location was very secluded & isolated, Bad : Rooms. Too small for our group. i have stayed at bigger room as couple compared to the room offered to 5 people. Toilet door was broken & had lift it & put back to shut the toilet.. Couples room was also small but much better.

                      Awful. We did'nt even spent the night like we were suppose to. The pictures on the internet were deserving. The grass were full of thorns. Not a best place to take your children. I wil never recommend Dassies Paleis.

                      The Good:Magda was a pleasure, when she welcomed us and showed us the alarm functionality, where everything was and where she stayed, if we required any further assistance.We stayed in MARULA, a quaint little cottage, clean neat and tidy.The Bad:There was NO braai facility at Marula - VERY dissapointing.The TV and portable antenna - could just as well not have been there, would have caused much less frustration than to actually try and get one station viewable.Dassie Paleis is a true bushveld resort, with lots of birds and beautiful indigenous flora set amongst granite hills." - WHAT A PITY...
