Amazing hotel, with great friendly staff. Our children love it and run free. The food and service is fantastic. A very relaxing place to be. We have been there two years in a row and will keep going back.

We had a wonderful time at Pumula. Rooms are comfortable and facilities are comprehensive - especially if you have kids! Even though some days were rainy, there is still ample to do in and around Pumula. The food is great and the service exceptional. We returned home well rested.

We stayed in Room 50, with a good view of the garden and beach. The food was excellent. Philip, the General Manager is a very 'hands on' and attentive person at all the meal times, as was the Food and Beverage manager. The service from reception, dining room and cleaning people was very good.

It is hard to imagine how it could be better for a relaxed family holiday. Everything is done very well with a superb location, friendly staff, great facilities and excellent food. Our kids can't wait to go back as there were lots of activities for them. Best family holiday ever.

A wonderful holiday resort for families...including teens! The location of the hotel is what this holiday is all about. It's right on the beach with access through two pedestrian gates. There are loads of activities to keep the kids and teens busy whilst the adults relax with a good book! The bedrooms are neat and tidy with well functioning aircons...

Rooms facing the sea afford a stunning view around well manicured gardens. Entry to the ground level room was pleasing with white crimp sheets with blue embroideries. Entry to the bathroom was a disaster as the basin was full of hair. Verandas provided good views of the children's play area with swings, trampolines, jungle gym and the pool area. Lunch...
