        • Family with children
          10.0

          Everything about it.

          The rooms tissue papers should be checked more often for a residue smell.

        • Older travelers

          service&food

          a army of ants attacking us! noisy airconditioners! people that stayed next to us,kept us awake to early hours!

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          The staff were very friendly. The lodge is in a great setting.

          The room service was poor, we had to phn more than once on several occassions to get something delivered or fixed. The room service food was very poor. The airconditioning heat option didnt work. The hair dryer didnt work. The TVs were very old and the remotes didnt work. Quite a few of the over head lights didnt work. The floor under the bed was very dirty.The impression given was lack of attention to detail

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The whole experience was amazing from start to finsih the service was seond to none and the room was very comfortable and we loved the fact that we had a butler to meet our needs. Only draw back would be food is pricey breakfast 16 pounds whereas if you go to the country club it is only 4.50 and just as good.

        • Couple
          6.6

          The setting and the beach area was fantastic. The room was also very well done.

          The food was average and no chocolate on the pillow in the evening was a little dissapointing. Our neighbour smoking on thier balcony didn't enhance the ambience for us.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          We would normally not have stayed at a similar venue, but because you had an off-season discount we did, and it was worth the price we paid, but not what you normally would charge.

        • Couple
          10.0

          Huge bed, amazing room and fantastic view from the balcony. Only bettered by the gorgeous infinity pool.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Grandiose decor and well set out interior design.

          No view from the balcony, totally obstructed by huge trees, palms etc , felt claustrophic. Found that having to get golf carts to get to parking, to reception, for further transport to the beach limiting to independence.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          The kids loved being driven around on golf carts - it was a real hit for them. staff were very attentive and helpful.

          My Partner feel down the stairs in the rain on the way to our room and cracked his coxsix, which did put a dampener on the holiday. I mentioned this to the Receprionist when checking out, but she didn't react at all.

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          Food was excellent

          Cannot access Room with vehichle at night times

        • Family with children
          5.8

          Nature and location

          Extremely poor service, no room service, no shuttle service between lodge and resort

        • Couple
          9.2

          The setting of the room in the forest with amazing views.

        • Couple
          10.0

          The service by the reception staff. also and the services of the shutttles.

          I was however disapointed that when i had an in roon service request - the card was not collected and when i went to the beach the shuttle there did not come to collect us.

        • Couple
          7.4

          The best features of this stay were the setting, an idyllic beach and forest setting with plenty of natural beauty, and the quality of the food. Staff were very attentive and responsive. Beds were extremely comfortable and the Victorian bath is wonderful! Afternoon tea was of a very high quality, as were dinner and breakfast.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          The peace and serenity that you will find at Zimbali lodge will blow your mind! The staff was friendly and provided exceptional service. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the lodge!

          The directions on the website need to be updated!
