This hostel has a great location overlooking a secluded beach with cows and a donkey. It has a lovely bar area with ok food and an adequate self catering kitchen. Unfortunately we had a bad experience here as our double rooms infested with mice. There were fabrics on the ceiling and reed walls which when the lights went out were full of mice scurrying up and down the roof and walls and the stench of uribe. We complained in the middle of the night and after initially being laughed at by the staff were moved into a lovely cabin. My parents also stayed in a double room with NO mice. We cancelled our next night and the staff were really apologetic saying they don't usually use that room but they were fully booked and would sort it out soon. If your booking a room check it out first as it made a really unpleasant experience however hopefully it is now sorted.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Amapondo is Ama-azing. Amapondo is nestled on a hill on the verge of a tropical rain forest and only 2 minutes walk from a beautiful beach. Head down to sunbathe or plunge in the clear warm waters of the deep rock pools nearby. The African-themed rooms and deluxe private self-catering cottages all have their own unique design and style. The quirkily designed cottages have incredible views, are really comfortable and come at a price that you'll find hard to match. Turtle Cove has one of the best views on the Wild Coast from its upstairs bubble bath, whilst Crystal House, with its glass frontage, offers classic panoramic ocean views. Whether you want a quiet, relaxing break in your own piece of paradise, a base from which you can explore the natural beauty of the area, an adventure on one of their many tours, close interactions with locals, genuine cultural experiences, yoga lessons, a deep tissue massage, or a thumping all-out party at their buzzy bar, you'll find it at Amapondo. ... more less
