We had a wonderful 3 night stay here - wish it could have been longer. Our 4 boys were able to play in the play area which we could see from our cottage. We also had a pool which they loved. We took advantage of the free entrance to the water park next door. Again, the boys loved it! The cottages were lovely and clean and the beds were very comfortable with lovely cotton linen. The owners were so nice and helpful and made our stay even more special - thank you! Good location for both Knysna and Plettenberg Bay. Would recommend this for a relaxing place to stay.

The cottages look very nice but are a bit dated in facilities terms - the shower is a 70s lead from the taps with nowhere to hang it from, so you need to kneel to have a shower and water gets everywhere are there is no shower curtain. Staff are very helpful and polite and there is plenty of space around the huts for children to play - though there is a pool and a pond which have nothing on them to keep children safe. You are supplied with a tiny bottle of washing up liquid, akin to the size of half a cigar, and this is the general theme for any type of cleaning equipment - so bring your own. Equally no condiments. Bins are emptied daily, and towels exchanged if left in the bath. Beware these are thatched cottages thus prone to cracks and gaps through which things do enter! There is minimal noise isolation too because of the thatch. Situated about 10km from Plettenberg Bay, and a bit further from knysna, there are plenty of day attractions within an easy drive. However, other than a petrol station about 1/2 a mile away, there is nowhere to by food or anything much unless you drive into Plettenberg Bay - beware all the shops seem to shut down around 1700 - plan ahead.

Had a great stay at Coraltree, the cottage was very neat and spotless. I loved that there is an area for the children just opposite the cottages, my son could play safely. Overall we had a wonderful stay! Definitely will return again:)

The only tip I would add is to worn people it is a bit hectic for small kids, while we were there 2 kids under 5 were rushed off for stitches. The actual accomadation was awesome and we will definitely be back when the kids are a little older. Wagtail is a wonderful setup and you feel like you are away from everyone. Thanks for a lovely stay.

We were stuck at a dump found Coral Tree Cottages and they were very helpful made a plan to accommodate us. Clean comfortable and spacious. Very close to plett and could ride to harkeville. In summer access to adventure land will make it perfect.

I have stayed here with groups on Birding tours on several occasions and it must rate as one of the best in the area. Great spacious rooms with all the necessary amenities for a self catering holiday. Perfect venue for kids as they have large grounds and pool. The cottages are private well maintained and dotted around a lovely garden setting. I highly recommend it .

Over mid December our party of 4 plus 1 infant had the pleasure of staying here.

The resort is equiped with ample lawns and a common-use pool, and is next door to a waterpark. Residents of the Coral Tree Cottages enjoy free access to the waterpark. The cottage we occupied was certainly roomy, and left us enough space to comfortably enjoy our holiday. Throughout our stay, i was under the impression that the other units were occupied, but never got the impression that the place was 'busy', and were mostly left alone. We would certainly stay here again.

The only criticism that we will mention, is that the Coral Tree Cottages holds a South African 4 star rating. The lack of Air Conditioning, in room internet, and a few other minor finishing issues make this a very good 3 star cottage, but a poor 4 star one.
