If you have a family, or just want to take a romantic trip for two, this is the perfect getaway. We stayed in the self-catering chalets, it was absolutely wonderful. It was private and had everything we needed, including the braai facilities. The pools were excellent. I especially enjoyed the warm baths. We also enjoyed paint balling and go carting....

What a special place for families to relax. All the boxes were ticked. From supertubes for the kids to relaxing hot springs for the adults. We stayed in the rondawels which were clean,well maintained and comfortable.

1st of all we weren't allowed to check-in by the unfriendly female staffer at reception with no reason given other than it was too early although it's low season and only an hour until the check in time. All this while everyone else who came in received a key. Racism? Power-trip? Plus, even if you have paid to stay within...

Recently had the pleasure of visiting badplaas over the August long weekend. I was pleasantly suprised at the quality of the rondavels. The rondavel we stayed at was recently refurbished and was very modern. Our only gripe related to the fact that the hot water was not hot. Once reported to reception a maintenance officer was promptly dispatched and the...
