Amazing experience, superb views and amazingly friendly staff. Definately worth visiting. We had a peaceful night, the staff are very accomodating which is a huge plus. Jacuzzi is awesome, activities such as canoeing are good fun for the family...and the value for money is great. Will definately go back

Ghastly dining experience. As simple as that. And such a pity as this place has such potential to be AMAZING. So while we LOVED the views and had a magical walk on the beach, we really did not enjoy the brightly lit dining area and the basic buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner One travels a LONG way to get...

We could not have asked for a better place to stay! The management team is great, the staff is ultra friendly and the food is incredible. The view from our room was magnificent and the holiday was excellent value for money.

the only saving grace of this hotel was the local staff is friendly. I would put this on par with a fishermans or backpackers venue. The whole feel of the hotel is plain grubby, the bathrooms and bedrooms are shocking and in great need of a revamp. I believe they are retiring, will take forever though, everything is mish mash....

After a 21km walk, mainly along the beach, the sighting of Wavecrest in the distance was very welcome. The accommodation is very comfortable and the meals are homely and delicious! The canoes made for an awesome birding trip up the river and they have their own airstrip. Lounge, bar and family facilities are great and the full size snooker table...

A wonderful family holiday destination. Fantastic location and excellent service! Relaxed, not fancy which is ideal for a good relaxing holiday. Beautiful walks loved the kayaking up the river and great beaches and snorkeling too. Wonderful bird life. A really super holiday highly recommended

I spent quite a lot of time here during Jan to March 2017 and was made to feel part of the Wavecrest family. All the staff here are just amazing - Nosisa and her ladies were incredible. Sean and his Team make it a wonderful place to be. There is so much to do here - horse riding, tennis court,...
