Very friendly people and stunning place.

Accommodation Visited

The Clarendon Fresnaye

Emme and staff were so helpful and couldn't do enough for us. Emme planned out our few days for us which was super. Hotel was just lovely and rooms had s nice view over Robben Island.

Phinda Mountain Lodge

This was the highlight of our trip. The place was just amazing and a great experience. Staff were so friendly and game drives were unbelievable. Ranger and tracker were very knowledgable. Would definitely recommend. Food was great here too. Room was amazing here too.

The Oyster Box Hotel

Very different and unique experience, loved exploring around the hotel with old style colonial libraries etc.

LUX* Grand Gaube

Really nice hotel. Setting us brilliant and beach is very sheltered. Food options were great, going all inclusive was a good option as foods would have been expensive otherwise. One slight thing I would give a 4/5 instead of 5/5 is that the standard rooms which we were in could go with a refurbishment / fresh paint and tiles were a bit grubby. Otherwise the hotel was great, food choices were brilliant and staff were brilliant.

Staff Review

Donna was just excellent to deal with, she was extremely knowledgable on all the places we were staying in and she really recommended Phinda which I'm so glad she did as it was the highlight of our trip. Would recommend Donna to everyone booking their honeymoon!
