We didnt stayed at the country club, but me and my girlfriend went there for a dinner and we ate realy good buffet that they offered as a special that evening. Plus the view during day time is amazing and the best part is if u can catch some small talks with the locals from mtunzini

We were booked to stay at Tradewinds for three nights over new year. We bailed after just 1 night. There was no information brochure of any kind in the room, something I always look for to tell me about the amenities and services at the hotel and in the town. The room was primitive - bathroom cramped and shoddy -... More

I went over to Tradewinds with my parents coming from France last week and we stayed for 5 nights. When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed and it already felt like a home away from home!

I stayed at Tradewinds for two nights as part of a conference. The rooms were more basic than they appear in the photographs on the website.
