Reviews from previous Blanco guests
“As three generations, aged from 5 to 73, Blanco gave us all a fantastic few days. The children were well catered for, (tractor trips, pony rides, playground and pool.) and the nanny was fabulous. Hiking, golf, tennis and bowls for the older children and adults. We were kept entertained. The food was very good and you certainly won’t go hungry. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. My son and family were so pleased that he thinks this should be a yearly holiday,” wrote Davect2013 on their TripAdvisor page.
LMojito22 added; “We stayed as a group booking before Christmas 2021 and had a magical time. I had heard amazing things about Blanco from friends, but experiencing myself was fantastic. Its true, everything you hear about the roast potatoes are true!!! They are out of this world. The food was so tasty, I don’t eat meat and they went out of their way to cater for me. Pack clothes for all seasons as one day the heavens opened and it hailed so much, we lit a fire and enjoyed the sound of the rain, the next day the sun was out and we were at the pool. I love that you can bring your own drinks, they provide fridges with each room having a shelf and cupboard in the bar area for your items. The staff were all so friendly. We had a really wonderful time and would love to go back.”
“We had wonderful time at this well-known gem in a beautiful corner of the eastern cape. Chris, Kim and Cheryl run a fantastic family orientated destination and it no wonder it has been popular with multiple generations of families. There is so much to keep all busy, and the food is wholesome and delicious. The hospitality of the hosts is second to none, and we had a great time!” said Charles B.
