We spent 4 nights at the moorings on a family holiday. On arrival the welcome was friendly and efficient. We were upgraded to a villa which was lovely. The villa is a double storey and has lovely views of the lagoon both upstairs and downstairs. We were able to have most meals( from the on-site restaurant)in the fully kitted out kitchen in the villa. Heating( air-cons) works well and we were warm and cosy at night. There is a lovely play area for kids. It would have been nice if the pool was heated. We would also recommend the addition of a gym on site. In terms of negatives the on site restaurant wowed us the first night but subsequent meals were not so great. We had taken a package which included dinner and by the 4 th night we decided to eat out because the menu options are somewhat limited by that time. The Shower in the main bathroom was also a little small. Overall we had a good stay and would recommend this resort.

We definitely enjoyed our stay at The Knysna Moorings. The staff was extremely accomodating and made us feel right at home. The tranquility of the atmosphere makes the whole experience much more pleasurable. They have plenty of entertainment for kids, as well as ample space for a conference event. They will see us again

My family and I spent nearly 2 weeks in one of the waterfront villas. Our original stay was for one week. We loved it so much that we extended our stay for 6 nights! The staff are absolutely wonderful! They were extremely accommodating as well. The kids club is fantastic! The staff are trustworthy, caring and look after the kids so well! I would stay there again in a heartbeat! Melissa Sax

Enjoyed our stay over Christmas holidays, stayed for 3 nights in the 2 bed self catering units. Very friendly & helpful staff. Philani of the kids club was exceptional, made sure our 6 year old son enjoyed his stay while maintaining the COVID (social distancing + mask) protocols. The rooms were very clean, both bedroom en-suite, lovely relaxing atmosphere with a view of the lagoon.
