Awful in house customer service. Disaster of a main course. Incorrect meal orders. No courtesy for guests. Restaurant manager rude and defensive. Lovely view, beware of the monkeys. Nice setting. Overall, an absolute never again at that restaurant!

Imvubu is located in a central place and was good for the business trip that I had there. The rooms were clean and maintained daily. The lodge is in a safe resort with great facilities and has its own gate connected directly to the beach which is awesome as this makes the beach feel more private and exclusive. The food...

We were a group of about 25 there for a 60th Birthday Weekend. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The food was delicious. Each and every meal was wonderfully prepared. The malva pudding was the best we've ever tasted. Unfortunately we were not able to use the bar area etc as the weather was bad and we just did not...

I visited the sanctuary spa located at the lodge. It was divine, and I would recommend it to anyone. While there I noticed they also have a caravan park, restaurant, putt putt, and paintball. I would visit just to use these facilities.

Good, clean rooms and good service. Liked the Ocean Access. Restraunt was very pleasant, good food at a reasonable cost. By the Ocean there were tables and chairs and a bar with light food. The only slight problem was one of the two days we stayed at, a couple weeks apart the internet was down so charges took some time...

Me and my wife staid at Imvubu Lodge for two nights, The second night was terrible! Our neighbors had a big party and locals joint the party. Loud music until 04:30AM. The security was there but could not control the large crowd.Report it to the general manager but no response from her.

We stayed in late August as a family for two nights using two lodges. These are wooden lodges so don't expect clinical pristine hotel rooms - if you want that then book a hotel! They are well equipped with TV/fridge/facilities and we found the cleaning staff friendly and helpful. We booked two of the smaller lodges and they were fine...
