Mazeppa Bay Hotel

Mazeppa Bay Hotel, Wild Coast, Eastern Cape

With beautiful white sandy beaches and the untamed wilderness as a backdrop, it’s no secret how the Eastern Cape’s famed Wild Coast earned its name. It is in the heart of this unspoilt indigenous wilderness that you will find the 3-Star Mazeppa Bay Hotel.

Perhaps Mazeppa Bay Hotel’s chief selling point is that here you can throw off your shoes and enjoy a beautiful island setting of palms and tropical plants, rolling hills, with an endless Indian Ocean beach and amazing secluded coves right at your doorstep.

Honeymooners and romantic couples will particularly love the area’s isolation from the chaos of city living. Families and groups will appreciate the hotel’s great value-for-money element.

Mazeppa Bay Hotel consists of double rooms, family rooms and thatched Rondavels. Each room has its own en-suite bathroom, giving you absolute comfort and relaxation during your stay. You have a choice of full board and self-catering accommodation.

There are a number of activities in the hotel that will keep you busy and entertained. A gym with a steam room will help keep you fit and fabulous, while the sparkling pool right in front of the beach will help keep you cool during those hot summer days.

Other activities to enjoy in the hotel are a snooker table, table tennis, dartboards, TV with DStv in the main lounge and a library stocked with a number of books for you to read. After a long day, you can make your way to the Red Blanket or Sea View Bar and sip on a sundowner and enjoy some complimentary bar snacks.

A suspension bridge near the hotel allows guests to walk across and take in the beauty of the area all at once, not to mention the walk can be a thrilling and adrenalin-pumping experience of its own.

Fishing and hiking are popular pastimes in the area, with the Qora River Estuary; anglers can choose to try lagoon, river or rock fishing. Numerous hiking trails can be found in the area that allows guests to see beautiful tropical flowers and the local bird life.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
