It's so sad to see this amazing hotel get run like this. We took the whole family, total of 5 rooms, for a long weekend. Our experiences varied from great (at Water Park) to pathetic (at the Chinese restaurant, run by a guy who should have stayed out of the service industry) Chico's delivers decent breakfast and dinner buffets, but the management staff are not easy to deal with. When we wanted to pay ONE bill for 5 rooms, they told us it wasn't possible, each room had to have a separate bill. What rubbish. Pool bar closes 4pm on sunny busy days, with sloth like service levels, no one serving outside. NOT ONE WAITER.
Their separation of smoking / non smoking also non existent. Id love to see what's going to happen when new smoking laws kick in. The entire hotel, 5 floors, stink of cigarette smoke. So next time we will do day visits and rather stay elsewhere.

Its a family resort, waterpark is nice and to chill by the pool, they have ladies that does massages by the pool that was great. Great Golf Course by the sea and Casino. Not the best service but a nice relaxing break.

We came through for a golf weekend. No shuttle to and from the course, limited places to eat and finally the beach and grass area were full of mess. The rooms were nice and clean though. I won't be back to stay but will play the course again.

I remember this hotel and facilities to be in a class of its own, sadly this is not the case anymore.
We visited this past weekend and had 2 rooms booked.
The rooms are tired with broken worn down fixtures and fittings.
You don’t get any tea, coffee or milk.
The staff at the once flagship restaurant, Chico’s, are over stretched, very unfriendly and rude. It’s almost like a chore for them to wait on you.
The food offering at the poolside is a mere pittance of what this dinning experience once was.
It’s a shame that this gem has slipped so bad.

We decided to stay over at the wild coast sun over the school holiday period. It was a very busy check-in as many families were checking in. Overall it was a pleasant stay. However two of the ATMs (standard bank and absa) was offline for a while forcing people to use other bank ATMs and forcing us to go off-site finding an alternative atm. The rooms were cleaned regularly, staff friendly, however we experienced that people staying over we're very noisy as they walk down the passages late at night coming from the casino which was annoying while we were trying to sleep. Also we had very noisy nextdoor people playing their the so loud and talking very loudly which was unpleasant. Overall the water park was nice, not overly crowded. Most enjoyable
