Lovely lodge ”
We enjoyed our stay. The family room we were in was very practical and convenient; especially so when you have small children ; it was one of the best we stayed in. The breakfast was good and dinner great. We didn't appreciate the owners of the lodge bringing their small dog in the restaurant while we were having breakfast; it made our daughters uneasy.

Wonderful location with great views and lovely on site restaurant”
This is our second stay at this wonderful lodge. Set in a very peaceful location, overlooking the Crocodile River, elephants, hippo and other wildlife are often seen. The onsite restaurant is a little gem and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Small family run lodge, with a very nice view of river and ridge just 5 minutes away from Malelane Gate. A perfect place stay on your way into the camp or prefere staying outside the camp. Very good food at affordable prices and very friendly staff!

Great Riverside Location ”
Friendly staff from check-in until we left. The family room was spacious with a kitchen and bunk beds in a small cubby. The bathroom could use a renovation but overall, a good room. Only real issue was that a sliding door to the balcony didn't close or lock. Maintenance staff were in the room to work on something else so I asked him to fix it. He said "no worries" and left. I believe others have complained about this very thing. It didn't detract from our stay but needs to be addressed to make everyone feel secure. Breakfast was to order one day and buffet the next. Average buffet but menu to order was very good. The dinner was nice both nights and our child loved the Springbok carpaccio. Prices were reasonable. Great staff, fantastic river views with elephants and hippos. I'd recommend it to anyone.

The laundry room is situated next to the pool and is close by to some rooms,so the cleaners make a lot of noise when they talk to each other,impossible to have an afternoon siesta.Not ideal to have a laundry in the vicinity of rooms,let alone a swimming pool.

Convenient but not worth the money”
We stayed one night at Rio Vista Lodge before heading into Kruger Park the following morning. The spot is convenient to Melalane Gate but it didn't seem worth the price. There were two adjoining rooms with a kitchenette. It was large but not particularly well-kept.The AC didn't seem to work well at all and there were posted signs saying not to change the settings. The sliding glass door did not lock and we needed to insist that a piece of wood be cut to at least physically block entry as they were unwilling to move us into a room with a locking door. The restaurant next door served a good meal but it closes down early so check the hours! Overall, not worth the money we paid.

Decent but will neither return nor recommend.”
Food was good (when restaurant was open), place was clean, AC worked.
Hotel Restaurant closed on Sunday afternoons/evenings and virtually no restaurants in town available... only one, Nandos. This should be on website; however, it is only mentioned at the very bottom of the sign at the outside entrance gate. TV options cut in half on Sunday and Monday. Decent TV offerins on Friday and Saturday, though. Not the best river location for most animals ... far shore is an embankment so elephants [et al.] don't easily come down to the water. It is a nice [and clean] enough place but didn't cover our wants, needs and expectations.

could hardly be better”
the staff, the room and the location
Very helpful, caring front office - arranged our safaris (very good guide), fetched take out meals from Malalene when the restaurant was closed, arranged pick up from the long distance bus stop. Caring cleaners - perfect cleaning (easy in the beautiful new room) + fancy flower/towel arrangements on the bed. For views - what can you ask for more than elephants from the balcony?
