Thank you to Amanda and the day spa staff at Sparling Waters. They made us feel welcome from the moment we enter. We had the spa facilities for our group of 17 ladies for the whole morning. Treatments were of the highest quality. Additionally our lunch was served at the spa itself. Cocktail were also served to ladies to enjoy...

What a pleasant surprise to discover this delightful resort. I had the opportunity of spending 3 days and two nights at this resort. Ok from the onset I knew that there was building works going on but this did not deter the staff or the quiet ambience of the surroundings. At a first glance it did not seem to like...

Understandably the hotel is under renovation which are very disruptive. We came for my birthday weekend to find the room decorated like something from the 90s and overpriced. Our phone didn't even work and the power constantly went off all the time. The dinner and breakfast was in the coference centre and way below standard. Every time we dined there...

Rooms were up to standard and as I was with my husband it was we were on our second honeymoon. We were treated with high respect and the food and rooms were out of this world. Sporting activities for everyone.

This is my third visit, accompanying friends who visit regularly. It was one of the most frustrating and disappointing weekends while on holiday in South Africa. Stone cold therapy pool in the spa and barely lukewarm jacuzzi. Staff claimed that they had reported it to management. We did the same but the receptionist just stared at us. Since my friend...

We have been visiting Sparkling Waters Hotel for a number of years for the relaxing atmosphere, good food and friendly staff. The hotel is now under new management and they are busy with renovations to upgrade, but we thought that should not detract from our stay, but sadly this was not the case. The quality of food was below average,...

My Family and I have been to Sparkling Waters on a number of occasions,but this was our first Winter visit.Our overiding impression,is a resort that is living on its reputation,but there are clear signs that this is wearing very thin.The rooms are clean and well maintained,but very dated,old carpet,ancient TV'S,and bathrooms,that scream of the 80's.Without any heated pools,the Grandchildren had...

We used to stay here often but on our last visit we see the place is looking shoddy and the food is nowhere near the standard we expected. Rates have gone through the roof and to describe the spa as the world's best is stretching things a bit. The area where the spit is held is decidedly grubby. I ordered...

Rooms not up to standard. Over priced dinner, charged double than what was quoted. Slap in the face reply when complaint was sent to management!!! Will never stay there again, allthough spa was excellent, will rather stay at close by lodge and drive there for the spa experience
