La Montagne, Ballito, South Africa
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Montagne and will definitely be back. Just steps away from the boardwalk and beach.

Tacky building site stuck in the 80's
An absolute dump! Half the place is a building site. The other half is tacky, delapadated and dirty. A shadow of what I can only imagine was a nice place back in the 80's. Not even the decent pool area and proximity to the beach (wth lovely view), can make up for the cramped, dirty, old, room. Changed rooms once and then just gave up and accepted my fate. Thankfully we were only booked for one night. Will never stay there again.

Disappointing stay - wont repeat
We are very well travelled globally and this is one resort not to be visited again. It is located in a breathtakingly beautiful spot. Large complex. Undergoing renovations so aroma of glue and tile cutting noises permeated the days. Workmen were there early and noisy. Lift was not working - so we had to walk the stairs with bags. Room was clean but very compact. Balcony opened to a public walkway and doors were easy to open. A security risk on this floor. Pet friendly - attached photos of cute cockroaches in the hall. All weather - attached photos of leaking ceiling and soiled towel left for two days to mop it up- slippery potential. Wifi does not work in the rooms - so guests huddling in the lobby to get contact. The reception staff were very helpful - probably from years of experience of many complaints. We were disappointed and pleased to leave.

Disappointing experience
The room initially allocated to us was very smelly, the kitchen lights and toilet did not work. We were moved the next day however the room was still inadequate.We have stayed at the hotel before and the room we were given then,which is showed on the brochure, was perfect. This is the reason we revisited the hotel, only to be disappointed as we were told only a few rooms are like that and its all been taken. The main pool was under renovation, this was not advised to us at booking stage and upon check in either.

Very Good8.0
A thought
Enjoyed all aspects BUT bathroom/shower to be considered as curtain and shower head not healthy and in times of water shortage a shower overrides having a bath
