Magnificent setting!

The kitchen facilities are very. Limited and everything is locked. If you need something, you need to find a staff member to come and unlock for you. Not great at all. Upside is there are amazing resturants in a 7 km radius! Even though Wi-Fi is advertised, we had no signal in the room. All in all, will definitely go back! The view and everything else make up for any "minor inconvenience".

Asemrowend, fantasties.

Fantasties en baie stil en rustig langs die see. In die aande raak jy aan die slaap met die kalmerende geluid van die see en die branders. Dis 'n perfekte vakansieplek in die warm somerseison, waar jy die see op jou voorstoep het.

Breathtaking, fantastic.

Fantastic and very quiet and peaceful by the sea. In the evenings you fall asleep to the soothing sound of the sea and the waves. It's a perfect holiday spot in the hot summer season, where you have the sea on your doorstep.

Peaceful and with the sea as a constant companion.

The price after a discount was reasonable, although still fairly expensive for SA travellers. You pay for the location I guess! I missed yogurt and muesli at breakfast as well as a fruit or two. The food was well prepared and more than enough!

Baie rustig.

Dit is 'n baie mooi plek met pragtige uitkyk op die see. Daar is 'n klein strand op hul voorstoep. Al wat nie lekker was is die waterdruk in die stort.

Heerlik hier gekuier vir 5 dae met kinders en kleinkinders. Was een groot, heerlike, ontspanne kuier gewees.

Kan met die grooste vrymoedigheid Sea Otters Lodge aanbeveel. Pierre is 'n wonderlike gasheer; het so lekker gekuier met ons. Miriam is 'n dierbare siel. Hulle het ons so tuis laat voel en die diens was puik. Pragtige venue met die mooiste uitsig oor die see. Baie dankie.

Rustigheid vir die siel.

Kini Bay is ongelooflik mooi en 'n rustige omgewing as jy die see se kalmte wil ervaar. Sea Otters Lodge is perfek geleë en die personeel en eienaar is vreeslik gasvry. Ons kamer was ruim, vreeslik netjies en gemaklik. Ek sal dit beslis aanbeveel vir 'n romantiese wegbreek.

Kini Bay is incredibly beautiful and a peaceful environment if you want to experience the sea's calm. Sea Otters Lodge is perfectly located and the staff and owner are extremely hospitable. Our room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend it for a romantic getaway.

Te duur vir wat jy ontvang. Die eetkamer is oral taai en vensters vuil. Geen gasvryheid. Geen eienaar of bestuurder vir twee dae gesien.

Die kamer is skoon en netjies dankie vir vir wit linne, maar vir R1250/nag verwag mens darem sjampoe, skoon vensters om die "see-uitsig" waarvoor jy betaal te kan sien, volle DStv keuse en filter koffie. Die haardroër is so taai dat die 100 vorige persone se haarsproei die swart van die handvatsel op jou hand verf ... Die res van die binnekant van die lodge is erg "tatty" en smaakloos. Twee nagte daar gebly. Geen eienaar nie in sig! Mriam was die ster van die plek!

This review is being shown in its original language.
Translate to English.

Too expensive for what you receive. The dining room is sticky everywhere and the windows are dirty. No hospitality. No owner or manager seen for two days.

The room is clean and tidy thanks for the white linen, but for R1250/night you at least expect shampoo, clean windows to see the "sea view" you pay for, full DStv selection and filter coffee. The hair dryer is so sticky that the 100 previous people's hair spray paints the handle black on your hand... The rest of the inside of the lodge is very "tatty" and tasteless. Stayed there for two nights. No owner in sight! Miriam was the star of the place!

Sea Otters Lodge 's response

Baie dankie vir die terugvoer. Die probleme sal die nodige aandag geniet waar nodig.

Die volgende insake u terugvoer: Die Sondag wat u gearriveer het, het dit gereën wat veroorsaak het dat die wind en reën die vensters vuil gemaak het en a.g.v die lang naweek (Paasnaweek) was nie al die personeel aan diens nie. Die eienaars was self weg gewees vir die Paasnaweek.

Al die slaapkamers te Sea Otters Lodge word toegerus met "shampoo, shower gel, body lotion" en seep. As u enige produkte gekort het in u badkamer kon u vir Miriam gevra het daarvoor, sy sou dit met die grootste plesier aan u die nodige produkte wat u benodig het gegee het. Ongelukkig het Miriam nagelaat om van die bottels te vervang en/of te hervul a.g.v vorige gaste wat daarvan saam met hulle geneem het.

Met die gratis ontbyt word daar n verskeidenheid van koffie en tee aangebied, selfs One Cuppa Caturra Filter koffie, miskien het u dit nie raak gesien saam met al die ander koffie nie. Daar word kits koffie (Nescafe & Ricoffy) en tee, melk en poeiermelk, suiker en versoeters sowel as beskuit in die al die slaapkamers voorsien.

Ons bied 'n kommersieel DStv pakket (DStv Hotel Packet) met 'n eie dekodeerder in elke slaapkamer aan al ons oornag gaste. Ons adverteer ook 'n Hotel pakket DStv.

Jammer oor die haardroër, maar dit is beslis nie ons haardroër wat u gebruik het nie. Ons het splinternuwe haardroërs aangekoop wat op versoek beskikbaar gestel word aan gaste. Nie een van ons kamers is en/of word toegerus met 'n haardroër nie. Ek vermoed dat dit 'n haardroër is wat deur 'n gas agter gelaat is in die slaapkamer en nie ongelukkig deur die personeel verwyder is nie. Let asseblief dat ons ook adverteer dat 'n haardroër slegs op versoek beskikbaar gestel word.

U meld dat die Lodge binne smaakloos is? Smaak verskil, Jammer dat ons nie aan u standaarde en vereistes voldoen het nie.

Vriendelike Groete

Extremely friendly, helpful service, very good food, good, peaceful location, superb views

They were extremely friendly, helpful and accomodating to an extended family party and really went out of their way to make life easier for the parents of a month old baby. The food was very good,the location is very good if you want a quiet visit away from the bright lights and the sea views are superb.
