"The venue is outstanding and perfect.
Everything is well cared for, well thought out and from an environmental point - 100 percent for effort and innovation.

Only problem can only come from the people inhabiting a space close by. Nevertheless, someone must have spoken to them and order reigned. We enjoyed peace and could hear the birds after they quieted. Thank you for a great venue."

"We had a fabulous time at Areena. It is super for families and very good value for money. There are numerous playgrounds and animals that wander the area and it is situated on a beautiful river. The restaurant was great and all staff was friendly and helpful, we will definitely return. My highlight was being kissed by the giraffe."

"Stayed as a couple from 26th - 29th February.

Very well appointed suites. Ideal facility if you want to relax. ÊAlthough we did not participate in any of the activities on offer, there was plenty to do.
Reception staff very pleasant and accommodating, however we recommend you double check your booking arrangements. We really enjoyed our stay however some attention to maintenance of the property and grounds is necessary. The property is looking run down and tired. General daily cleanups such as sweeping the restaurant deck and surrounds is lacking and with the amount of wildlife walking around we were constantly dodging piles of poop. Other than this we had a really pleasant stay and would return one day.

"Areena is a lovely resort. The icing on the cake was seeing wildlife and on the morning we left a giraffe was on the road. The cabins are comfortable and spacious."

I would love to have stayed longer due to the available activities in the area and would recommend the resort to friends and family."


"Fantastic hospitality"

"A group of us hiked down the Wild Coast, paddling the last few kilometers to Areena. Although it was winter, with few resident campers, we were treated like royalty and spoiled rotten. The rooms were great, and the catering fantastic. Would happily recommend the facility to any Wild Coast hiker. "

Towels, coffee or tea in the room."
