Excellent staff, luxurious rooms & stunning views. Bizarre to see giraffes in front of your suite and the beach & sea in the background but it was awesome. Only downside was it was too short!

Oceana is unique offering with amazing sea views, a small reserve with lots of birds and some nice animals. The suites are well done and the staff are very helpful. Food is excellent. I really hope to return soon.

Simply amazing. Having travelled all over the world and had an opportunity to stay at some amazing places but Oceana has to be at the top of the list. Situated on a game reserve with zebra, sable, kudu and much more ocean suite overlooking the ocean is just stunning. Great value for the American dollar same room in Cabo would...

On our way from Port Alfred, we stopped by here for breakfast. Oh my gosh I have never seen such a wide variety of food for breakfast. I ate until my stomach hurt.

The most luxurious accommodation. Very spacious. Most beautiful beach, all to yourself. Great food. Luckily a gym with the most beautiful view to work it all off. Very attentive staff and service. Staff went beyond the call of duty to accommodate all requests. Game drives are average. Stay for a few days.
