Hans Merensky estate has been built on grand scale, and the number of hotel rooms continues to expand. However, having been there several times, I note that many areas of the construction have not progressed much in several years - for example there is supposed to be a gym and a big outdoor swimming pool but both have been in...

It's like a ghost town. No one was staying there. There were cob webs everywhere. The heat in our room didn't work. We didn't even want the room to be cleaned for fear that we would be robbed. Nobody was friendly or helpful. The internet was down for the entire stay. The pro shop was completely empty. There is nothing... More

No welcoming other than handing us the keys over. A welcome letter without any explanation regarding the facilities or security guidelines in case of an encounter with a wild animal. Furthermore,...

I do not usually bad-mouth places but this place is to be avoided at all costs. Besides having very dated facilities (construction under way may solve that--maybe), we were actually the victims of crime! When we checked in, we found that our safe was not working and requested servicing. It was "repaired" and we put our valuables in it. When... More
