The unit we stayed in is infested with cockroaches, there was no matches or complementary coffee or tea! On a positive side the restaurant is a great asset to the resort.

Only spent a stopover night, but found the accommodation very comfortable with a beautiful view of the dam. would like to return for a longer stay to appreciate the area fully.

We really enjoyed our stay. Everything was great. The view from the chalet was stunning!! :)) The only thing that needs improvement is communication/feedback to the cleaners. We got permission to check out at 12H00 yesterday. So we went cycling around 10H00 and when we got back to the chalet at 11H30 the house-keeping lady was inside cleaning and that was awkward. Fortunately we had already packed most of our belongings, but we still had to change from our cycle gear and pack our toiletries and perishables while she was cleaning. :(( She was not informed that we could leave at 12H00.
