I had the time of my life at Mpekweni Beach Resort. The resort has excellent facilities, excellent food and white sandy beaches which are not crowded. The hotel grounds are pristine. I would go back there any time given the time and money.

Meticulously maintained gardens and suite, spotlessly clean, very friendly staff and the buffet dinner and breakfast were outstanding ! The suite opened directly to the lagoon and the beach, but the weather didn't play along - all in all, a terrific destination.....don't forget to admire some the best koi you will see in a public place!

Mpekweni Sunday buffets are an awesome treat. A huge variety of food and dessert at a reasonable price. The stir fry option is particularly delicious especially for vegetarians. Great for special occasion family lunches. It is worth the drive from East London

The Chef!!... Wow they were amazing with the delicious food, starting from starters to desert, deco. Everything shows the passion from what they create in the Galley for visitors. I can say all was full of LOVE and not forget the cleaning staff, receptionist. When you enter the resort you are welcomed by LOVE & SMILES.
