Reviews for The River Resort

"The peace and quiet of the park."

The absolute brilliant assistance from the receptionist and her urge to help with anything.

review by Fanie Van Rensburg

"Neglected Chalets"

The Chalets need some TLC. Outside tables were falling apart, braai stands were rusty and bent, we didn't even have a shower extension in the bath for our unit, everything just seemed neglected and run down.Housekeeping is very slow, we had to wait until 4pm on the second day to get bath towels - we brought swimming towels for the Aquadome and came back to the chalet to find all the towels removed but not replaced and called reception, both house-keeping numbers with no answer on either line.Place looks nice on the outside though. Shuttle service was good, reception and booking issues were sorted out in a jiffy - so thanks for that.
