Food was very nice home cooked meals, the location was beautiful , a perfect little spot to escape the hustle and bustle of the world , just kick your feet up and read a book or go for long walk or just drink watch the waves roll in

Located on the edge of a beautiful lagoon at the mouth of two rivers with a magnificent stretch of beach backed by a pristine dune forest, Wavecrest, a traditional family hotel offers vistas, fishing and wonderful walks. Be aware, though, that the beach can only be reached by kayak across the lagoon mouth. Unfortunately, the hotel is lacking in many...

We stayed 2 nights at Wavecrest. They were full when we arrived and went out of their way and made a plan to accommodate us. The food was outstanding and offered 3 meals a day. The staff was also unbelievably friendly and good. Thank you for making our stay very pleasant.

We stayed in a rondavel with view on the ocean and immense estuarium. Kayaks available to get to the beach. We had a firm massage in their spa. Restaurant buffet was average. The tv lounge has a funny cimema set up! They serve complimentary snacks at the bar around 1800 hours.We could have stayed longer and will return.

Stunning location and friendly staff. A really relaxing break. Would recommend for couples or families looking for a holiday with a difference. Amazing views, getting back to nature. Really exquisite bird life in the area for those who are into birdwatching.
