The campsite and ablutions were clean and neat. Staff were friendly and helpfulTo be improved:Only one of the trampolines was safe to be used, yet the other was not barricaded off to stop people / kids getting onto it

Really enjoyed our stop over at the resort. However one night isn't long enough to enjoy a visit.

Ablusie fasilitiete is nie skoongemaak na die mense wat die aand voor ons daar gebly het nie. Broadwater het belowe hulle sal dit kom skoonmaak deur die dag, maar teen laat middag moes ons weer gaan vra. Dit het dit moeilik vir ons gemaak om die badkamers gemaklik te gebruik.

I enjoyed my stay at Broadwater very nice place to stay, I think they can improve on the service in the kitchen they are very slow, it could be the number of people they have since it was the water festival. If you want peace and quiet don't go on the weekend of the festival, please fix the dirt road. Will definitely go again.
