We stayed at Merry Pebbles for 3 nights just before the start of the public school holidays and absolutely loved it - my kids are already asking when we are going back. We camped and were lucky to have one of the riverfront sites, but many of the other sites also looked wonderful and I would not be massively disappointed...

What an amazing setting on the Sabie river with loads of trees and lawns. Perfect for kids and families - heated and cold pools, slides, jungle gyms, old putt putt course, outdoor chess, tennis courts, villeyball etc etc. Reminded me of Spearfish canyon in the states. Plettenburg units small and quaint could do with a bit of new linen. Otherwise,...

We enjoyed the resort. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. The chalet is too expensive for what you get. The size of the 4 sleeper is ridiculous small. The kitchen area is pathetic. The working area next to the stove is as big as a bread bin. The curtains keeps on falling off the rails. No comfartable chairs in...

Enjoyable weekend away although very pleasant and really nice location we did think it was a bit expensive. The bungalows are modern and tastefully furnished and very comfortable with everything you need.

Nice quiet venue in very picturesque surroundings. Accommodation is comfortable with everything you could want available on site. Great weekend away from the big smoke. Being a bit picky, the accommodation could do with being updated. Putting this aside, this is a great place for a family holiday. Lots of activities to keep the kids busy. Great place for a...

Very neat place to stay we had a great time. Very friendly staff, lots of activities for the kids. All maintained really well and very comfortable lodges to stay in. Although it was full it was very quiet. The kids made lots of new friends.
