I stayed with my family for 3 nights in Tonquani (Family Chalet). The chalet was absolutely comfortable, cozy and charming. I really liked the attention to details that was given to the decor which included African artifacts and Victorian style setting in the chalet. The location is fantastic. It takes less than 5 mins to reach the Knsyna Waterfront. Its...

We were 4 adults and booked 2 chalets (4 & 5). The service was excellent, chalets are small but very cosy, with air cons & a fire place. The special little touches in the chalets on arrival and every night on our return to the chalet, made us feel special. King size bed with elec blanket was extremely comfortable. Breakfast...

I booked one night as a surprise for my wife's birthday. Maurita and the rest of the staff went out of their way to make it memorable. They arranged a birthday card with a surprise spa treatment, booked dinner at a nearby restaurant with complimentary champagne and a beautiful birthday arrangement in our room. They even upgraded our cabin! The...

I booked Tonquani for our group (12 family members - 4 chalets) based on the TA reviews and was very very pleased. Tonquani´s chalets are like log houses. The front ones are smaller, one bedroom, perfect for couples, very cozy. The ones in the back are huge (we had 9 and 10), 2 bedrooms, fenced and have their own bbq...

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived and discovered a little tropical paradise tucked away just off the Garden Route! The grounds were beautifully kept, and our cottage had lots of little touches that made us feel like we were on our honeymoon again. In fact, the resort may have thought we were honeymooners--they upgraded us to a bigger cottage...

Pros Friendly staff and a very nice breakfast. Cons Family of ours stayed in one of the smaller cottages and its really very small and very basic. I feel the 5 star rating is a bit misleading.
