“Fish Eagle Restaurant at The Estuary”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

Very recommendable fine dining restaurant, also for guests from outside the resort. There are not so many option around after peak saison, especially if you like to dine in style!
We really enjoyed the fresh fish, the delicious lamb shank and especially the homemade basil mashed potatoes - a real insider tip!
Very professional service staff. Good, but not exceptional wines.

Spent 3 nights here from the 2nd to the 5th Jan 2014, was very pleasantly surprised. The accomodation was nothing fancy but clean and spacious and airconditioned. Took along the kids age 5 and 4 who had a ball in the pool inhouse, beach 7mins drive away and at the Wild waves theme park abt 15mins drive away.

Food was superb....best Malva pudding ever. We had the breakfast and dinner for the three nights which was buffet due to high season and quality and variety offered was really great.

Would defintely return as the staff also made a real effort to making our stay there special. Bed turned down with choclates every evening....fresh towels propmtly delivered.

Minor details do need work but in all they offer a good value for money package.
Thank you for a great start to the new year :-)

Room Tip: Waterfront/ lagoon facing room was great to watch the tide come in and out

We spent 7 nights at this lovely family hotel. Excellent location on a lagoon with sea view. The beach is a 10 minute walk away.The rooms are spacious, each room with 2 double beds. Very good meals are served at the Fish Eagle Restaurant. Perhaps too many buffet dinners.Apart from swimming and sun bathing there is lots to do in the area.

The hotel has a lovely play room for children of all ages and a spa.

Negatives: we rented 5 rooms (4 lagoon facing and one sea facing), in 2 rooms the airconditioning did not work, but it was fixed. Room 201 was damp and mouldy, another room had to be used.

We moved to The Estuary the day after our wedding as our venue was preparing for another wedding. We found this hotel to be excellent. The hotel really went out of their way to accommodate our every request and make us feel so special. The food was fantastic and the location is perfect with the beach only a short walk away. The views are spectacular.

About 30 people from our wedding also stayed at The Estuary and each one of them loved it. The babysitting service was excellent and well priced.

The Spa is also great and well priced.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a sea view room

On the 29th of March 2013 I had my wedding at The Estuary. The day before the wedding I had to co-ordinate getting things ready (like having to get cake flown in from Cape Town to King Shaka), driving up and down, fetching people from airport, the works. It was really hectic and as a result we (my wife, groomsmen and bridesmaids) could not meet at the venue to properly plan what was to happen the next day. I was really panicking as I'm one of those people who likes to have things go according to plan.
The next morning I was up at 5am and when I met Bronwyn to find out how things are going, she was cool, calm and collected and gave me the reassurance i needed that I should not worry about anything.
These guys really know what they are doing as everything went off without a hitch, far exceeding my expectations as this made it the special day that it was.
I cannot thank Bronwyn and her staff more, they redefined the words "customer satisfaction".
Up until this day my friends and family are still talking about the breathtaking views and the hospitality of The Estuary.
Am looking to go again there some time soon, just to unwind this time and get a spa treatment.
This is a place i would recommend to anyone looking to get away from the city life, you will not regret it one bit.

We were there as part of a foodie group trip and stayed for 2 nights. We could see there was new management because a lot of sprucing up had been done. Beds are very comfortable and the room spotless. Food was very good and the staff attentive. The location is everything with wonderful views over the lagoon and out to sea. Bird life is prolific. They are working hard to get back their 4th star - which should be very soon judging by the enthusiasm of management.
