The hotel is quite nice, the luxury room has a kind of living room, a bedroom and a well sized bathroom. It's equipped with a flatscreen tv and a fridge. The room was clean like the entire hotel. Breakfast tasted nice and nothing was missing for us. The hotel is build in "village-style", no big block just small houses which...

This place is a much better place than we have previously stayed in other places. The facilities are good and so is the food. However, just that it would be good that if the room could have at least a fan for wind circulation. The TV although is a flat screen, take note that it does not support HDMI. The...

In overhaul, we had an excellent experience like all the other years we've been there. Would you please allow us to braai on the premises as this was the only discomfort we experienced. May I also suggest you have a bigger and more central kids play area (games room). I can only compliment and thank your entire staff for an...

Thank you for continuously choosing The Dunes at Arniston as your annual holiday destination and for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate your comments.

If you're in search of a hidden jewel - don't tell anyone, please - then this is the place to be if you want to be treated like family or allowed the privilege on doing your own thing. From booking in to being shown the rooms, followed by dinner to breakfast was a seamless process of unrushed relaxation allowing for...

Excellent service: wonderful, appetising breakfast!, equal to the feast for a king. Friendly, professional, helpful staff. The room needs some "refreshing" though still comfortable and clean. What we like best of the hotel was the safe, quiet and peaceful environment, and of course their Breakfast.

Thank you for your lovely review and for your honest feedback. We are aware that the standard room option requires some refurbishment. The standard room units were initially purpose-built to accommodate conference delegates but we have plans to upgrade this in the future. Our executive wing is our most luxurious and newest accommodation option and might be more to your...

We had a wonderful stay will go back any time. Rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. Management and staff were excellent in all departments. The only "downside" is the location it is not sea facing.

We appreciate your review. Thanks so much. Unfortunately, we cannot do anything about sea views as we are just a little too far from the sea to provide beach front views. However, we are a quick drive from the beach.

We're terribly sorry about the ants. Unfortunately, owing to our proximity to natural vegetation we do have ant visits every now and again - although it isn't a regular occurrence. We rectified the issue as soon as we were made aware of it by means of biodegradable, natural insecticides. As for the kettle, while it might appear to be peeling...

Had a good peaceful and good rest. Place was easy to find and we could only find one fault that was listed and that is that the executive suites should have an option of two single beds. Wishing the Dunes years of success

The area is very beautiful and the rooms are clean and functional. The whole structure seems a bit vetust, but overall it is a very good value for money. We did not try the restaurant (it looked a bit ugly). I would recommend a good espresso machine to the management.
