Oubaai Hotel Golf & Spa
Ranked #3 of 9 Hotels in George
Reviewed 13 July 2012

We came here with the family in July 2012.
The hotel rooms are comfortable and big, but the bathroom is "modernly-designed", which means that they don't have doors and are open from one side. Also, they have semi-transparent glass walls, which makes it ideal for couples and very uncomfortable for families/friends. It was the end of the rains, and our room was on the ground floor. There were many earthworms crawling out into our room every night, which was a bad experience. We asked the hotel to clean them, which they did, but the worms returned every day. Our bathroom sink also got clogged, which was a bit frustrating. The hotel rooms are very far from each other and one needs the hotel golf cart to reach them, which is a problem during the rains. The breakfast spread is also quiet OK and nothing very lavish, compared to normal 5 star hotel. I say this, because we were on a tour and had been to two 5-star hotels on the same trip. The whale deck was under construction and we couldn't see it.
After reading all the good reviews, I was hoping for a better experience, but I sadly leave with a bitter one.

this was by far the best propety in our south africa trip.

the rooms were superb and large , the breakfast was sumptous and the hotel had such a large area we couldn't visit it on foot , so we requested for the golf cart.

the club at the waterfront is beautiful

the best part is a deck by the name of whale watching deck , if u go and watch sunrise there u will be thrilled

Mid-week business trip at the Hyatt Regency in Oubaai was an unexpected treat! Absolutely beautiful rooms with luxurious and comfortable classic modern touches - gorgeous mountain and ocean views...impeccable service and hospitality! Dinner at Cucina restaurant was delicious - and creme brulee for desert was out of this world... 5 star facilities made extra special and enjoyable by 5 star staff. Well done!!

Had the opportunity to spend an evening here recently. I was very impresed with the whole package and especially the bedrooms and the breakfast buffet.
This is definitely a place to return to as a couple and enjoy the full facility. Their 'winter breaks' which also include golf seem like incredible value.
I will recommend this golf/hotel to anyone

This hotel blew me away with their room. It is massive! you could get lost in there. The hotel in general is a little sparse - you have to walk along way to get anywhere. The setting is gorgeous, the staff very very helpful. All in all a 5 star experience!

Room Tip: try get one close to the reception or else the travel is a little long.

I had the opportunity to stay here with a work group. The whole area is really beautiful and unexpected, much like the hotel. The staff were really pleasant and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The open plan bath, marble and plush finishes, really feel special. And if that is not enough, treat yourself to a spa treatment in their spa.

Room Tip: Try to a mountain view, it really is spectacular.
