I stayed here with family in our camper van. We had a separate kitchen and bathroom right next to our pitch. The walks were bliss and views amazing. We had monkeys swinging thro the trees but my favourite was the meerkat . They would sit up and their heads Bob from side to side. There is a great water park...

My wife and I stayed at the Willows Caravan park for the month of February 2017. What a beautiful well kept and maintained camp. Ablutions are always clean as the staff are always busy. We made many good memories there. We will be back!

The Rondavels were well maintained, but sleeping arrangements a bit awkward, the 8 sleeper meant two people sleeping in the lounge. The entertainment for children as Advertised in their leaflets does not happen until the season starts 16 Dec . Although schools had closed for the summer holidays, builders break etc.Management was asked , and we were told it is...

We were so happy to have been able to stay here for our 2 week holiday in PE. The site is maintained and security is good, so you feel safe. The staff were accommodating when requests were made. The slide was great for the kids and they were excited about Santa Claus on 24 December. I do think that they...

Well maintained facilities, super helpful and friendly staff and gorgeous accomodations made for a memorable stay with friends and family weve not seen for 4 years since living...

We recently spent two separate weekends at this resort, both of which were most pleasant - despite the inclement weather. Great sites and spotless ablutions. The only objective criticism I have is the somewhat rusty bbq stands and an average games room.

I was staying over at The Willow for a three-day conference. The resort is clean and welcoming. Staff is friendly and the chalet was very tidy. The grounds was looked after and night watchers patrol the resort at night time. What a wonderful alternative to watch the rolling waves whilst on business. The catering was superb and we had a...

Beautiful scenic views! A warm and friendly child friendly establishment and the best is that no dogs are allowed. Nice poo free, clean and safe. Not only are all the accommodation alarmed, they also have guards patrolling. We stayed in a double rondavel, 5 sleeper which was fully equipped. The staff were warm and friendly and went out of their...

I last visited The Willows some 41 years ago and it was absolutely fantastic visiting again for a few days. The staff, Janine and Marianne were super friendly and very helpful. Upon arriving with my friend who was visiting for the USA we were greeted by friendly security staff who assisted us as we arrived quite late in the evening....
