We were re-visiting the hotel after our HoneyMoon of 10 years ago. This was a family holiday and we waited a bit for check in. Rooms were too far away and they had sand in the bed... although the same was sorted. Kudos to the kids club, my kids had fun there. Food was excellent and also the Mnazi Restaurant... More

My son was sick and puking his gutts out. I called the room service to bring him pumpkin soup only to be told to go and... More
