    The unit was very neat and appeared to be newly renovated. Very nice deck area with braai that we used. The resort is beautiful and the kids enjoyed the playpark area.

    We were disappointed about the pool. We were at Kiara lodge in May and we wished the pool would be ready when we visited in November.The rest was excellent.

    The location, the chalet, the two ladies at reception were also friendly. Also including the guy called Tshepo who does bookings for Quad Biking. The quad biking guide (Katlego) was also super helpful. Kiara is very beautiful, the dam and hiking trails are gorgeous. We even extended our stay.

    My family and I checked in on the 18th October for a 4 night stay. By Wednesday afternoon my husband fell ill with tummy pain and nauseau. By Thursday evening my 8 month old and my 2 year old were both vomiting, and by Friday evening so was I. My observation is that the units are not cleaned thoroughly, and shared spaces like the playroom are not sanatized. The units don’t seem to be thoroughly sanatized in line with COVID protocols between guests as well.

    We booked at the lodge from 15 to18 Oct. We were not informed that there was a bug/virus in the air and ppm late Saturday 10 of us became seriously ill. We asked via reception to replace sheets as some puked on the sheets during the night. We were only then informed of the virus. We even had to take the younger to a hospital in Bethlehem about 60kms from the resort. My son an his family had to leave a day early to get medical help from their physician. So in essence emwe had only 1 fruitful day at the resort and it feels like money wasted. We couldn't even visit the dam and it's attraction owing to the illness.
