Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hosts were super friendly and very accommodating. The inhouse Restaurant staff was amazing, very friendly and always a smile and pleasure to them when serving the meals. Plenty of food, generous helpings. Room was clean and serviced to a high standard when requested. The only thing we can fault the Resort on is the lack of airconditioning. There are heating in rooms but no airconditioning, especially in bar, restaurant and lobby.

This place is nothing like the photos Do Not stay here Hardly any staff They’re argumentive Place is old and unclean No swimming pool etc No alcohol licence Rooms are old. Holes covered over on walls Food is brought in for each meal. Not a lot of choice no menu. Tv is hopeless. Just everything about the place is wrong. Like a time capsules being reopened Understand developers from away have purchased. Best thing for it would be to put a bulldozer through it.

Really terrible experience, I would not recommend. First night the spot lights in car park lit up our room because the thin curtains weren't adequate, our sleep was impacted. Staff were polite and apologized but that didn't make up for the issue, they put better curtains up. Second night was party central upstairs and we were kept awake by guests upstairs. I would not recommend this over priced stress inducing, sleep reducing place. It's not a resort. Sadly our first stay in April was fine hence why we returned...we will nor be back.

This is not a resort. It is more like a hostel with big bedrooms. The hallways are smelly and dark. Our room was very spacious and it was clean but basic. Tea, coffee and a kettle with a small fridge was good. The location is brilliant but sadly there’s been no maintenance over the last years. It is a self check in and out.

Stayed here for one night while visiting the Opuke Thermal Pools. Greeted at reception by very casual staff - three of them standing around talking while we stood and waited directly in front of them. The receptionist finally sorted our booking, informed us that the restaurant and bar are closed as they are renovating it. Our room was basic, but adequate - not sure if it had been renovated as still had the very old outdated Skope heater, and no heating at all in the bathroom, very limited in the way of cutlery and dishes - two mugs, two small glasses - no wine glasses - but it was clean and the bed was okay. The noise from other rooms was easy to hear even with the door shut. We only stayed one night and as it was not a really cold one, it was okay. Would hesitate to book here during the winter though as the room could be very cold.

We were so looking foward to staying here as I had stayed here 20+ years ago and had a great experience as a child. After travelling for 3 hours to get here found no one around, rang the bell, checked the restaurant not a single soul in site! After waiting 15-20mins rang the assistant manager after finding her card in Reception who advised she would be there soon. When she showed, I asked about the hotpools after seeing a sign saying they were closed for maintance, so disapointinng as this was the only reason that we had booked here. I queried her to as why people who had booked hadnt been advised of this prior to arrival and was told she didnt think it was nessacery, was then told that the restaurant and bar were also closed. After such a horrid experince on arrival we opted not to stay and found better accomodation down the road with absolutely lovely staff.

We stayed for a ski trip and were very happy with our stay. The staff go the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable. Location is great, it's on the main street and we could have walked everywhere but the air was brisk. Liked the big room and that there was a bathtub. We soaked in the outdoor spa late in the afternoon after skiing. Would stay there again. It was very reasonably priced, very clean and comfortable altho a little bit dated inside.
