Fairmont Zimbali Resort, Ballito
Outstanding5.0 / 5
Beautiful area with gorgeous views!
Stayed in the identical suite as last time, but several months apart. Same plumbing problem with one of the sinks, and malfunctioning sliding doors - for the price I expect routine upkeep and perfection. Nothing less. Door from pool area to lifts area is still beat up, creaky, and broken - sub 5-star standard. How long does it take to fix these minor problems?

Good3.0 / 5
5 star hotel with 1 star service..
Service is bad at Zimbali. When you order food or drinks at their restaurants you will wait more than 30 minutes for it to arrive. Staff is unfriendly and service none existent. The reading light in the room didn't work at all and the hairdryer was broken. For what you paying we got one star treatment. Don't go to Zimbali with expectations you will be disappointment!
