The place is relaxing, lots of entertainment and a beautiful scenery. I am disappointed though that as a guest who stayed for 3 nights, we supposed to get tickets for free to the aqua dome and animal zoo. but that is not happening? but regardless of my complain it was nice.

The unit was basic, nice enough for a few days out of Johannesburg. We wouldn't come back though.

The place was clean, very neat and beautiful. Please note that the safe in number 61 does not seem to work. Had a great time. Thank you.

Hello I am writing this review from your self catering chalet. This visit was actually a birthday treat for me by my family. We often stay over and your hotel and usually have a wonderful time. This visit was different though... firstly we had to wait 45 minutes for keys after a 2hr trip from jhb with 2 toddlers. the reception on duty however made up for this with her friendly personality. The problem appeared to have been housekeeping. Secondly when we eventually got to our chalet, it reaked of alcohol. This was however made up by housekeeping who supplied us with air freshner. Thirdly we requested a shuttle but after an hr had to drive to the zoo. Lastly, we were tolde that our complimentary vouchers for aquadome etc was valid for 1 day only, this came as a surprise since we always used our comps for the day of arrival as well as departure. The ventura resorts also works the same. Please try to attend to the above matters since you have wonderful facilities on site however with these disapointing aspects, you may find your guests booking elsewhere. Thank you
