                          What a surprise ....this place is a gem... To be so close to the sea is just fantastic. We were lucky enough to see dolphins 3 mornings in a row while we were having breakfast. Will recommend Sea Otters Lodge should you plan a trip in Port Elizabeth.

                          There are really no boundaries for the great hospitality that I received at this establishment. I had a very nice stay and will certainly tell others about this lovely place.
