Fish River Villas
Reviewed 1 May 2011

Reception staff gave us two different rates for the check in within five minutes of each other, one siad it included breakfast, the day of check out, I was told that breakfast was not included. this was not a problem.
We stayed in the self catering cottages, which were really in good shape, it looked as if they were recently redone. So if you are looking for clean and neat and tidy rooms, these are perfect, with good quality duvets, and pillows. Besides the rooms, this complex has nothing going for it, besides the fact that you are across the road from the Fish River Sun.

The let down is that they almost treat you like you are applying for finance to buy a home when you check in, they take a deposit from you which is supposed to be refunded within 7 days. It is now 8 days later and we have not seen our deposit. You feel like you are giving them too much personal information when checking in, and this is for a self catering place. I can only presume they have had problems before, and this is their way of preventing goods being stolen form their cottages. Fish River Sun across the road was slightly more expensive, and I would have preferred to stay there.
