Could not have chosen a better place to go relax. The staff was friendly and helpful, food in the restaurant was good, the environment was just perfect for one to unwind and rejuvenate! It was really worth the visit and it's a place that we will revisit.

An excellent little hotel in Ballito, rooms are great and the location is excellent. It also has an excellent restaurant. The food I had was top quality. I would definitely stay here again, only issue I had was the shower that dammed up a little.
