We enjoyed our stay very much. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The chalet was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed a lovely dinner at the restaurant where The service was excellent. The views of the three rondawels are spectacular. Just be warned, close and lock your chalet door! The baboons enter without knocking.

The place was very clean, the people who work there is very friendly professional and helpful. The lady who cleaned our place in particular was excellent and she always brought a big smile with her every morning.My only disappointment was that our four sleeper suite did not have a lounge for us to sit and relax when it got cold outside but either than that we had lovely time.

The area surrounding the Resort is absolutely spectacular and exceeded our expectations. The Resort is also beautiful and the pool and children's play area are lovely. The chalets are nicely renovated, but we found the kitchen very basically equipped and the presence of baboons a bother as one had to keep windows and doors closed at all times. The personnel were all friendly and helpful.

The place is awesome, the room we had had a breathtaking view and all people were helpful and nice; definitely a place to recommand. The hike in the canyon required a few skills but it was worth sweating and it's well indicated.
We just have to say it's a pitty that bath towel are not provided when going to the swimming pool and to find spirits, we had to leave the resort.

We stayed there doing the Panorama route, on our trip going north. This place is very well located with all facilities. Our chalet had 2 rooms. Luxury as stated, but more standard rated. Swimming pool huge but cold ! Restaurant ok, but choices very very limited. Resort good for one night stay after doing the Rondavels end of the afternoon.

We spent two nights in Forever Resort Blydepoort. It's a very big resort with a restaurant, a shop, a big swimming pool, trampolines, kids' playground..., beautiful trees in a park visited by baboons, nice look outs. Accommodation is clean, fairly comfortable even if a little oldish. A place to recommend in a region with a lot to offer.

We had a lovely stay as a group,however we found couple of cochroaches in the kitchen drawers. My suggestion is that they must doom the kitchens regularly and there must be pest control,to avoid such things to spoil the travellers mood.

We enjoyed every bit of our stay.

This was our first visit to Blyde River, the excellent standard of service and facilities at a fair price added to our enjoyment. We especially welcomed the non-smoking policy in the chalet, unfortunately previous occupants had not respected the rule. The smoking /non-smoking options should be made very clear at the time of reservation, this helps everyone to respect the wishes of others.

The resort is situated in such a beautiful, beautiful area, you simply MUST stay here to enjoy the surroundings.
The bungalows are however quite old and mucky and in serious need of renovation. If you don't mind this, the resort is a great place to stay!
Staff in general are friendly, the restaurant staff are a bit moody and hasty.

The hiking path from the upper viewpoint to the lower viewpoint was not well marked - the colour brown is not easily seen in the dark or after rain due too the mud.

We loved the place. The whole "estate" (rather, than regular hotel) was kept clean, neat, well maintained.
It offered plenty of greens, to feel, like you were in the nature. Congratulation to all, who have planned, financed, materialized and keeping up this lovely site.

For non-smokers, it is not acceptable to be booked into a room where people were smoking previously, especially since we were not able to open the windows due to the baboons. How about separate rooms for smokers and non-smokers?
On the plus side, breakfast was excellent!

I was very satisfied with the standard of accommodation, the lay out of the facilities and the general friendliness, service and accessibility of the staff.
However there are 2 things to note - the person who was in charge go booking us in, was "officious" in his attempt to train a small group of personnel in the art of admin and we felt embarrassed at his dealings / communication skills with his staff (and sorry for the staff too) to off set this I had a lovely encounter with one of the cleaning women, who really restored my faith in rural South Africans. I was also impressed that although I had done my own washing the lady who cleaned our room, brought in my washing before the dew fell - this showed a real awareness of where the washing had come from and which hut I was occupying - I was very impressed.

The property is well placed with lots of nearby places to visit. Well designed but the interior set-up needs few attentions such as:
- TV room with couches separate from the kitchen as some people are there on leisure and requires relaxed places
- Double beds as all singles and do not accommodate couples
- Bathroom - most people prefer showers than bath cause is a shared sanitary.
