What a surprise ....this place is a gem... To be so close to the sea is just fantastic. We were lucky enough to see dolphins 3 mornings in a row while we were having breakfast. Will recommend Sea Otters Lodge should you plan a trip in Port Elizabeth.

If you're looking for a relaxing and beautiful area, Kini Bay is a great place to be. Sea Otters was great. Our room was comfortable and spotless with a fantastic view and is located right on the beach. There is plenty to do and see in the area. The staff were great and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfasts were delicious and Pierre delivered a fabulous Christmas dinner. Port Elizabeth is close by so there is no shortage of restaurants. We would certainly go back.
