We stayed in the Honeymoon chalet for 10 nights. What a wonderful experience. Staff were friendly and the rooms were clean.

I loved the set up of the chalet and that it was cleaned so beautifully everyday. Thanks for the welcome card, if you could maybe just add a reminder of the check out time that would be great.

Prepare to fall asleep to the sound of lapping water at the waterfront units. I bet the braai's have the best views in SA. I also need to commend the staff (front desk, security guards & cleaning staff) on being extremely friendly and helpful. Thanks for a lovely stay!
