Reviewed 9 June 2014

My family and I had the good fortune of receiving a voucher for a two night bed and breakfast stay at this amazing hotel. We arrived at the front security and were welcomed by an extrememly friendly lady who directed us to the hotel, Lucky greeted us at reception and his patience and friendliness were apparent, as my daughter said, he genuinely seemed to enjoy his job and interacting with people.

That evening we treated ourselves to a stunning, well prepared and beautifully presented meal at the restaurant, the staff were very attentive without being invasive.

The breakfast was an absolute treat, with an undisturbed view of the beautiful estuary and the Indian ocean.

We had the most wonderful time and look forward to revisiting this lovely establishment in the future.

Room Tip: As this is a hotel where many couples have their weddings, it would not be a bad idea to try and get...

My wife and I enjoyed an outstanding break at the Estuary. The staff were great and the cuisine really out of this world. of course the Reardon Family make it their personal business to ensure that just everyone is well catered for. We love them and the Estuary and treasure every opportunity of spending time there.

Room Tip: Ground floor sea-facing is just the best. But I can't fault the rest.

What a beautiful setting, enhanced by good food and excellent service. We had a lovely Sunday afternoon and we will be back. Charlie also took a walk down to the mouth of the estuary, past the villas and their beautifully laid out gardens.

Room Tip: We did not use any of the rooms, since we were visiting the restaurant only.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the views are breathtaking the service is friendly and professional. We most enjoyed the children's activities that were very well organisied and give the parents a chance to chill. Another huge plus and a must for us is the Wi-Fi which we can't do without. Highly recomend the Estuary hotel and spa for families and single guests alike.

Room Tip: Try a sea view or lagoon room

We recently stayed at the Estuary Hotel as we attended a nearby wedding. The Seaview rooms have a lovely luxurious feel with great estuary and sea views. The staff was friendly and the food lovely. Great fruit at breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for Seaview room

We recently attended a friends wedding at The Estuary Hotel and Spa. As the accommodation is rated as "three star", we didn't have huge expectations but we were pleasantly surprised. The location and surroundings are beautiful as is the hotel itself. Our rooms were very comfortable as was our experience at the spa and the breakfasts at the hotel. The food was "homely". Breakfast on the Friday morning differed hugely to the breakfast over the weekends with the former being far tastier with more variety than that offered over the weekend, possibly this was due to the large number of guests staying for the wedding but we did feel that breakfasts should be consistently good no matter how many guests are staying. A beautiful, special spot - we will definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea facing room - although I think that they all may be sea facing....not sure
