We stayed in the 3 bedroom unit, and was very happy with the stay, the rooms are clean and very neat, and we had views of the bay and sea, and we could walk to the beach. We arrived very early, and the staff were absolutely amazing in helping us out. The service is excellent and the staff are very...

Wow, wow wow! We visited this establishment for the first time 15 years ago and were impressed. A return visit for a special anniversary was just as spectacular. Upgrades to the property including a new pool, bar and lounge area make this the ideal spot to take a romantic time out. If the budget allows, opt for the executive suites...

A very nice property on the beach. The rooms are well good and very comfortable. The garden is well maintained. Enjoyed a round of tennis in the morning. The menu has a wide variety of dishes , nothing exotic though. Breakfast was good too. The staff , everyone from the receptionist to the restaurant staff were very courteous and always...

Saldanha Bay has a shortage of proper restaurants. However, Blue Bay Lodge restaurant is the ultimate restaurant in region. Great food selection and wines, with outstanding sea views. Great bar as well. Service is brilliant and definitely great value for money. This restaurant slash lounge slash bar is super relaxing & peaceful.

We used the Blue Bay Lodge for our Mystery Tour on the 11th December. Everyone who joined us thoroughly enjoyed the day in Saldanha. Being so close to the water we found it an ideal venue for a hot day. The food was very well presented ; their staff most obliging - in fact, we can heartily recommend this Lodge...

I stayed at the Blue Bay Lodge this weekend. Before going I decided to look at trip advisor and when I saw the negative comments I made up my mind to not experience the place with an open mind because the positive responses here far outweighed the negative once and I was pleasantly surprise. At first glance, the staff were...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review and for visiting us despite some negative comments on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately people are more likely to write something negative and the positive comments go unmentioned most of the time. So we really appreciate it when clients like yourself take time out to write your positive reviews. We are happy to...

The Blue Bay Lodge located on the edge of the lagoon has a prime position but lacks the finishing touches that would make it a high class venue. We stayed three nights in the so-called executive honeymoon suite which had a sublime view but lacked a fridge, wine glasses and the towels which were never changed in the three day...

We visited BlueBayLodge to attend a meeting and wine tasting. Owners revamped BBL with true passion. Beautiful setting for functions, conferences and especially weddings. Friendly WestCoast hospitality. Build-a-Burger lunch was great fun and very tasty, thank you. Will definitely visit again.
