About The Thatches

The Thatches is a self-catering resort within walking-distance from clean beaches, the beautiful estuary of the Kei River and a quaint town named after the mouth of the great river.

The cabanas are set-up to provide a range of sleeping options: The Twosome is an open-plan room with a lounge, kitchen and double bed, perfect for a couple or single person travelling. The Family Four options have two bedrooms, with one double bed and two single beds. The Super Six chalets are larger, with two double-bunk beds in one room and a double bed in the other, making them well-suited to larger families and groups of friends. There is a one chalet which is a little more luxurious De luxe. With en-suite bathrooms for both bedrooms and air-conditioning it is ideal for those looking for that little extra comfort. All cabanas are cleaned free of charge by The Thatches staff six days a week, with optional Sunday cleaning available upon request. Each cabana is equipped with a gas braai and television. Please bring your own towels.

Guests can enjoy easy access to the East London Coast Nature Reserve, the Hole In The Wall, and the Wild Coast Sun Golf Course.

                          There is a lot of problems at this resort. The bedding are not clean at all and had a bad smell. The tap in the bathroom basin is not working. The unit was not clean and did not smell nice. The manager of the resort was making remarks all the time to my kids that were swimming, about the water. If they are not allowed to swim, then the pool must be closed. The kitchen cupboards were broken below the stove. I did not enjoy my stay.

                          The Tatches is a beautiful resort and my stay there was peaceful and relaxing. It is great for couples as well as groups. I will definitely be returning to The Tatches but with my family this time.

                          I only stayed there over night but the time that I did spend there was really great. The service and everything. The host welcomed me and was quite nice and pleasant. The place was absolutely lovely with a great atmosphere. The room was spacious and comfortable. It was very peaceful. I would like to go back and stay for a longer time, and I would recommend it to family and friends.
