We couldn't have been spoilt more!!!! Oceana is just the most amazing location to have best of both worlds, watching the game on you deck with the most beautifull ocean in the background.
Food was superb and the hospitality from all personel of the highest standards. Highly recommended!!!!

Oceania is definitely the best holiday place we have ever visited. The accommodation is luxurious and meticulously maintained. The food is exquisite and the service is warm and caring, never over- bearing or ingratiating. The beaches surrounding the resort are pristine and the views from the ocean suites are breath-taking. We were not able to fault this exceptional place. From the moment we were met by the charismatic Tata at the gate, until the moment we had to say good bye, we truly felt that we were in heaven. We will endeavor to return as soon and as often as possible.

Room Tip: Ocean suites are magnificent,

The staff at Oceana Beach and Wildlife Reserve in Port Aflred is sooo accommodating.
The chef prepares the most delicious meals, while you can relax, enjoy spa treatments or take in a game drive.
Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Rooms in the main lodge have some noise due to wood floors, but this would not negate the experience...

What an excellent all round experience. I felt very sad to leave such an amazing place that truly made you really feel like i had completely escaped from the daily grind of life. Fantastic food. Beautiful scenery. Warm and very sincere service and true hospitality. Only one complaint. I had to leave. Could have melted into those surroundings and stayed for a month. Compliments to the Oceana team. 11/10 Rating. Steven Schultz

Of all our local and international travels this is by far the most memorable and best holiday we've ever gone on. Everything was on point! We went on a game drive with Nick, freezing as the weather was, and we were very pleased with him because of his passion and knowledge of the "animal planet". Our highlight was seeing the Rhino and the view of the dunes and ocean on the left and the beautiful sunset on the right, while sipping on a cup of hot chocolate. Our Ocean suit was ama-zing and a thumbs up for the privacy of each suit. Our suit had picturesque views of the ocean and we absolutely loved the personalized cards that were made daily, the food was to die for, the kudu steak is a winner! And I really enjoyed the relaxing massage at the spa. And the staff was ever so helpful, polite and gracious. They tended to all our needs with a smile and made our stay even more pleasurable. In a nut-shell, you haven't lived if you have not been to Oceana. Thanks Gary and the staff of Oceana. Zanele & Andile, Swaziland

We had the most amazing and special 2 night stay at Oceana. Our luxury ocean view suite was simply luxurious and breathtaking, very romantic, loved the 4-pillar post bed, heated floors and the tv that slides out of the bed. The suite is super spacious, with endless views of the ocean and bush. Loved that there's two bathrooms :) The jet spa bath and the huge double head shower had the most insane views ever. Booked spa treatments, the spa could do with a bit of an upgrade to match the 5* rating of the property and service. Enjoyed it though, but i have had better.

The food and staff were great, we felt looked after and the food was delicious and well presented. We were very lucky to be taken on our game drive by the GM Gary, I have been to a lot of private game reserves and game drives but this was just amazing and so unique, how often do you get to see wildlife and the ocean at once, that was one of our highlights. The best part except the walk OMG was the private beach, we were the only two people on the beach, it was just pure paradise and so surreal. Had a private dinner in our suite on our last night and it was beautiful.

Our overall experience was just out of this world, best memories and one of the best hotels i can say i've stayed in South Africa so far.
