Just Okay
This location has seen better days, however you can tell that it used to be Ideal back in it’s prime. Rooms are either dilapidated or newly renovated. However no sound proofing, neighbors were up until early hours of the morning and they sounded like they were in the same room. Overall, the Sabie location does not have many choices so this place is not bad considering.

The staff where friendly, i was disappointed by the state of the rooms. The room i was given was not clean. The pillows were too hard that i woke up with painful neck. I didn't enjoy my stay at all.

Devan Govender Family from Umhlanga
The venue, setting, security and location were great, near most attractions. Staff were friendly, kind and very helpful. Walter made everyone's day with his ever willingness to help, kindness, politeness and selflessness. Xmas lunch was superb, but needed more staff to cater for the large number of guests. We rate this resort one of the best in Sabie. Our family were very satisfied and happy with our stay at the Floreat Resort.

1/5 Terrible

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
This hotel should have it's stars removed! The place is filthy and disgusting. The bathroom had dried up urine all over the floor and toilet. We had to wash the bathroom before we could use it. The sheets are threadbare and have holes in them. The table cloths and napkins in the dining room has holes and had been burnt right through. I will not advise anyone to stay at this so called hotel.
