  • "Nothing"

    01 October 2018

    "What a terrible place too go. I will not recommend this place too anyone not even my enemy. On arrival no one was at the office. We waited half an hour for Louise to get there. Filty pool. Slide not working. No actual usable facility except the chalae. Louise was unfriendly towards our day visitors and very arrogant. They say no loud music or noise but there was people who had a ball of a time making a noise. As we are not people who love too complain we let it pass."

  • "Disappointing resort"

    02 March 2017

    "Very few units actually have any sea view, no daily cleaning service as advertised, no shower in cabins, TV was ancient and tiny, run down resort, very unhelpful staff and a rude owner - my guests were treated so badly they left early. Not a 3 star resort at all."

  • "Unfriendly staff and dilapidated facilities"

    04 January 2016

    "We stayed at Arendsnes Camp Sites for four nights during the December 2015 holidays.<div><br /></div><div>Good features:</div><div><ul> <li>Close to the beach.</li> <li>Good landscaping and gardens dividing each camp site.</li> <li>Good camp site sizes.</li> <li>Relatively good value for money.</li></ul><div>Bad features:</div></div><div><ul> <li>We were not treated very well by some of the reception staff - they were unfriendly and very unhelpful when we tried to change booking arrangements.</li> <li>The camp site that we were moved to was situated next to a sewerage sump and pump. In the pump manhole a cockroach infestation was not dealt with prior to the holiday season which resulted in huge (8cm long) cockroaches coming out of the manhole and dying all over the camp site).</li> <li>Some of the ablution facilities were dilapidated (but quite clean) and plumbing leakages were clearly visible and not fixed.</li></ul><div>Despite the downfalls of the camp site, we still enjoyed our stay and hope that Arendsnes' management / owners address these issues for future holiday goers.</div></div>"

  • "Easter 2015"

    09 April 2015

    "We stayed in the Caravanpark over the Easter Weekend. We experienced no wind as one might expect at the sea. The site was well grassed and the vegetation provided excellent wind and shade. Park was safe to leave stuff on site, and the we left the resort by way of key card at an electronic gate. No unauthorised persons were roaming the park providing safe environment for small children to interact with one another. The resort offers no view of the sea, but that we knew before we came. We just required rest and solitude which we did have.We did however receive our measure of heavy rain together with the rest of the Coastal Areas of South Africa. Early April is common for rain at the Coast. We experience that one Easter at the South Coast of Natal. We swam in spite of the rain because the sea is so warm. Eastern Cape is a differentmatter if it rains the water is still cold. Around the 24th of April, Cintsa is great while the Free State is gibbering with cold and a lesser possibility of frequent raining. Planning your shortholidayis up to your own objectives. Did you come to play ordid you come to rest? Our objectives was a rest of which we had plenty of it. We had afew days of sun andwas also fortunate to pack upTuesday 7 Aprilwithout rain under cloudy skies. I would recommend Arendsnes for parents who badly needs a rest without the constant bother to be concerned for your child."

  • "Arendsnes"

    01 December 2014

    "Very enjoyable stay at Arendsnes, nice and quiet, comfortable, nice setting, will be back again.One recommendation would be to obtain shower mats for the showers, as the floors are very slippery!"

  • "No nonsense wooden cabin"

    07 July 2014

    "Chintsa is the most wonderful place along the Wild Coast and Arendsnes lets one experience a bit of the wildness and wonder of this extraordinary place with a log cabin ambience. Very close to the beach and lagoon, all amenities simple but clean and functional."

  • "Not even worth the one star rating"

    17 February 2014

    "The accommodation is extremely rundown and hasn't been maintained. I will mostly certainly not recommend it to anyone ever!"
