Only stay in a family room
Stay in the family rooms and never look back. This time we didn't get one and it was uncomfortable. I already know there is No wifi in the room but the room we got with a double bed had 2 singles pushed together. The air con blew directly onto the bed and into our faces which added insult to injury. Then the tv was tucked in an armoire that wasn't faced near the bed so we had to angle it and watch sideways. Usually we don't spend much time in the room but it was raining and we did this time. I was disappointed with this stay.

Great place, great stay!
What an awesome hotel at the Malelane Gate of Kruger Park. Everything was excellent, food was delicious and especially enjoyed having breakfast on the elevated terrace, overlooking the Crocodile River and the park.

Excellent4.0 / 5
Not the Pestana standard that we are used to!
The location is excellent but the lodge needs to be renovated. The furniture is old with chips, some doors don't have the safety lock. There are some very uncomfortable chairs in the dinning room.

Worst 4 star Hotel in the world
I have read most of the negative comments before we decided to book into Pestana . Like most of you I thought the people were a bit tough on them . I wished we listened . Pestana charge 4 star prices for a defnitely below par 3 star Hotel . The deck chairs was swamped by spider webs . haven't been cleaned for months . The grass was long and you could not make out where the weed begins and the grass ends . The wall had splashes of wrong paint which tried to cover up old drill marks . The receptionist tried to stand in for the lack of a bar man . They tried their best but said there is no bar man . The deck poles in front of our room was broken and by the look at it for quite a while . I think the place needs a new manager as the one currently their is not up to par to run such an establishment . Like I said a below par 3 star hotel with 4 star price tag . Expect exactly that .
