Lake Maraboon Holiday Village
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 April 2014

The resort itself is quiet & placed right next to the lake with easy access, however on the first day we found the pool was dirty, lots of bugs & leaves in it which wasn't too pleasant but it had been cleaned to a more acceptable standard by the second day. The amenities where clean & modern but insect nets over the doors wouldn't have gone a miss. Camp kitchen had all the basics plus a tv and centrally located which was good for meeting & chatting to other guests on the site.

Thank you for your review, as we only bought the park off of Discovery Holiday Parks in Late February this year we had to find our feet before starting all our renovations.
We have taken your feedback on board and we hope you come back and visit us again and see the difference we have already made =)

Cheers from the team @ Lake Maraboon.
