I was, very soon, upon arrival assured by all that I had failed to describe just how splendid the Ocean experience was. my family and I were...

I have travelled and stayed in many many hotels and lodges, but nothing quiet as amazing and special as oceana. If I never go to another hotel again I will be happy that I stayed at the best and will keep the memories for a lifetime.

It was the ultimate end to a wonderful holiday. Absolutely amazing suite, views, beach and especially the staff. Definitely a 5 star establishment with really nice touches. The games room kept the kids occupied and my son had the opportunity to befriend some interesting characters. Disappointed with no game drive!

Except from the bad weather, which we could not blame Oceana Beach, it was a fantastic stay which we enjoyed very much. The buildings and surroundings are marvellous, and excellent service. Thank you all.
