The kiddies' spa of the same name at the water park is spectacular and probably one of the nicest I've ever seen. However, the spa in the actual hotel is horrid. It seems nice from the outside but it's management and staff are terrible at their jobs. It sounds harsh but frankly, given the other spas available in the South... More

My partner and I have visited this establishment twice since its inception. The second visit was as good as the first one. The therapists are experienced and talented, which makes for a relaxing spa retreat. I actually fell asleep during the full body massage & if there was one other treatment that could top this it was the foot massage.... More

By far the best conditioned course on the South Coast. Stunning views, slick greens and manicured fairways made this the highlight of the tour! Take the lady ball spotters, well worth it. They really try, helpful with distances, green lines and quite humorous! Clubhouse was poorly stocked and disappointing. Halfway was ok with great views. Hope to return soon to... More

The venue is excellent and the staff are very friendly and helpful - particularly the Towel attendant - Majozi. She is a real treasure and absolutely brilliant with the kids. We've been visiting the resort for many years and she has consistently been the STAR performer year after year!

OK, its a casino...so it's about flashing lights, money sounds (mostly I guess it being lost), and not stop action. If that's your thing then it's not a bad destination. It is a little tired after its heydays many years ago, but is still set on the magnificent Wild Coast. It's jut a pity that you can't actually see much... More

I am so tired of feeling ripped off!!!! Wild Coast is not the cheapest to play golf and yet it is quite a fantastic golf course. I have been going there for five years to play with my local club as one of our annual golf comps. The half way is shocking, for five years they serve the same revolting... More

The Wild Coast's new water park may only have a handful of slides, but is a lot of fun when you're not waiting in lines. Luckily, I went just after the schools went back so the park was relatively empty. However, it is ridiculously overpriced to get in (you have to pay for parking per person and then again to... More
