"We stayed at Umzimvubu for two nights. The self catering unit we stayed in was spacious with three bedrooms and large living areas. But not well maintained and not properly cleaned before we entered. Fridge nor pedestal fan in kitchen was not working. The fan was not replaced and being February is was hot and humid. Fridge was sorted out after second request. No water for one day, which was turned off for no apparent reason. Ceiling fan in one bedroom gave shock when switched on.Umzimvubu has stunning views of the river mouth and is situated in a beautiful part of the country. The place has huge potential but more attention must be given maintenance and house keeping."

"We only spent one night, but our room was very spacious and comfortable and overlooked the ocean and river mouth. We had driven a long way and so decided to eat at the restaurant. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious, and our hosts very accommodating. A lovely place to stay."

"Our overall stay in Port St Johns was fantastic. As we had never been there before there was a lot to see and do. Our host at Umzimvubu Retreat (Dries) was most accomodating and had many suggestions for outings etc. The accomodation is clean and comfortable. The food is excellent at Umzimvubu. In fact in general we found the food in the area to be of a very high standard. It would have been better if there was more of a lounge area for guests, but I believe that they are in the process of doing additions and improvements in that area. The DSTV was a bit of a problem in that, when watching a programme suddenly you are watching another programme as it is controlled by the hosts and they therefore change the programme at will, even if it is in the middle of some programme. We would definately visit this area again but perhaps on a self catering basis next time. Thanks for the recommendation."
