This place has seen better days. You can tell it had a good run, but now it’s very run down and highly decadent. I did not enjoy my stay.

Family holiday in Ballito
Stay was overall good but disappointed that the pool was under renovation when we got there. No msg or warning to let us know that the pool will be out of service especially when you coming with 3 children. Staff were abit confused on the reservation and wanted me to pay for breakfast when it clearly states on my booking that it’s inclusive.

Beautiful seaside resort
We loved the location and the views are really awesome with easy access to the beach and promenade. The pool area is amazing and well managed by the life guard. The La Vita Spa was excellent with great specials for guests. We stayed in a recently renovated 2 bedroom unit on the 3rd floor (on road level). The unit was clean and very comfortable and quite private. It was adequately equipped. There was no walk in shower only a shower in the bathtub but the bathtub is unusually high to climb into. The cell reception in the unit was poor and there are only a few DSTV channels. The areas (children's playroom and indoor bar) still to be renovated look a bit unsightly. Still we had a lovely stay and the beach makes up for everything.
