In overhaul, we had an excellent experience like all the other years we've been there. Would you please allow us to braai on the premises as this was the only discomfort we experienced. May I also suggest you have a bigger and more central kids play area (games room). I can only compliment and thank your entire staff for an...

If you're in search of a hidden jewel - don't tell anyone, please - then this is the place to be if you want to be treated like family or allowed the privilege on doing your own thing. From booking in to being shown the rooms, followed by dinner to breakfast was a seamless process of unrushed relaxation allowing for...

Excellent service: wonderful, appetising breakfast!, equal to the feast for a king. Friendly, professional, helpful staff. The room needs some "refreshing" though still comfortable and clean. What we like best of the hotel was the safe, quiet and peaceful environment, and of course their Breakfast.

Would definately recommend the Dunes to anyone. Lovely luxurt accommodation with friendly & helpful staff. I would suggest a bigger halaal option at breakfast time as well from the restuarant. Other than that, always a relaxing pleasure staying at the Dunes

We had a wonderful stay will go back any time. Rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. Management and staff were excellent in all departments. The only "downside" is the location it is not sea facing.

We appreciate your review. Thanks so much. Unfortunately, we cannot do anything about sea views as we are just a little too far from the sea to provide beach front views. However, we are a quick drive from the beach.

Had a good peaceful and good rest. Place was easy to find and we could only find one fault that was listed and that is that the executive suites should have an option of two single beds. Wishing the Dunes years of success

The area is very beautiful and the rooms are clean and functional. The whole structure seems a bit vetust, but overall it is a very good value for money. We did not try the restaurant (it looked a bit ugly). I would recommend a good espresso machine to the management.

We stayed at the Dunes hotel, and all that we could get was the executive rooms. These are almost brand new, well fitted, modern and very comfortable. The service is good, and all facilities are good. The food was tasty, but the service in the restaurant at night is a bit slow. The prices are very good, almost half the...

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at The Dunes. It was very tranquil and away from the hustle & bustle of a typical beachfront stay. Staff was friendly & very helpful. We are coming back again (still deciding on the date). Would recommend it to friends.
