6/10 Good

Positive points for this property include the food, which was generally of high quality and the guides, (although over utilised by the property), who were friendly and knowledgeable. However the property needs investment with broken tiles and old furniture in the bar area, no privacy screening around the chalets, poor fitting window blinds and lack of safety fence from a potentially dangerous drop at the edge of the pool area. If your looking for a couple of informal days in the bush around a pool, this resort is fine however if you wanted to stay here and see a wide variety of wildlife, you would need to drive 45 minutes to the Pilanesberg Reserve.

Absolutely awesome!
Wow! What a true gem! We absolutely loved every minute of our stay at Finfoot. The service was fantastic and all the staff were super friendly. It was so relaxing with a great ambience and lovely chilled vibe. The rooms are big and comfortable and i loved the layout of the lodge. They have a number of activities to suit everyone and the spa has very reasonable prices. We loved the bush walks, game drive and sunset cruise on the dam. The food was good and with 2 swimming pools and loads of outdoor space you are spoilt for choice. Its also only 2 hours from Joburg which is perfect for a weekend getaway. We will definitely be back.

We had a wonderful time as a family but I feel a bit more entertainment on New Year's would have been appreciated.Maybe some not so loud music by the pool area

6/10 Good

The whole impression is the one for a 3 star accomodation,good enough but certainly not wow! food is kept warm in pots, so if you are at dinner early; the food is tasty, but when you are a bit late the food is getting dry and not much left. the rooms are oka'; not special. the distance to the Pilanesberg nature reserve is 75km, much more that the suggestion that was given on internet. We had a nice time but we will not come back, sorry.

A great all round Experience! From start to finish all very smooth opperation. Booking online, without a hiccup, confirmation and lodge called to check on our arrival - nice to hear a voice in between the notifications. Reviews and comments on site prepared us for the gravel road which was manageable and an adventure. It would have been a horror if caught by surprise. Checkin friendly and prepared, too professional... room as advertised comfortable clean and purposeful. Bar and meals great. The peace and quiet -what we came for was perfect! Service with a smile and nothing was an effort or not possible. Thank you for making it a great weekend. Checking out, everything was ready, bill was clear and didn’t have any surprises. Thank you!
