Upmarket hotel on the beachfront of summer strand in Port Elizabeth. Check in very professional. Good breakfast and excellent dinners. Chic studio style rooms. Awesome customer service. Very convenient location and parking. Ranks as a top hotel in Port Elizabeth. Rooms equipped with a good aircon to ward off the effects of the windy city.

Good hotel to stay in. Great location and the view of the sea was great. (Would have been better if it didn't rain so much) the bedroom was spacious and clean and had everything you need. The reception staff during check in were very friendly. You are very close to the Boardwalk which has a casino, shops and restaurants. One... More

Dear Kezrw, Thank you for the lovely review as posted here on TripAdvisor. I have note your comments about the breakfast prices and will review. I can assure you though that R 160 per person for our full Radisson Blu Super Breakfast is indeed a very competitive price in this node. That said, I trust we will have the pleasure... More

I recently stayed in the Radisson Blu on three separate nights. Our room on the first night had good views of the sea and we even had a show from dolphins. The food in the restaurant was good. On the second stay there was a problem with the shower which resulted in a mini flood in the bathroom. This meant... More

Dear Cait08, I am saddened that your second time was not so great and that we did not deliver the service we are known for. It is apparent that in this occasion we dropped the ball so to speak. Please accept my apologies and I trust that this did not detract too much from the rest of your holiday. Kind... More

The room can best be described as utilitarian - if you like having your bathroom in your bedroom, then this hotel is for you. However, if you prefer some separation between your sleeping and bathing areas, then this hotel would be better avoided - although we are not sure if all rooms are fitted out in a similar fashion, this...

A modern hotel with all the expected trappings. Well appointed and staffed to a high standard by very helpful staff. Dinner was what you would expect in this type of hotel. The room was very well appointed and comfortable and on a high floor with excellent views from the panoramic windows.

We chose this hotel for its proximity to the Ironman start/finish. I have to say I'd spent a lot of time reading previous reviews and my expectations were fairly low, especially around the bathroom and service. That said, I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't as bad as some of the reviews have made out. The welcome we received on... More

Good location for participants and also spectators. Close to the beach. Great views. The food service was extremely slow and for some reason they only wanted to give you one bar of soap!! We had to ask for another one for the shower.

The hotel posted photos on booking.com that portrayed the fact that they were directly on the beach! This is not true ! Their building is behind other buildings and only has a distant sea view! Otherwise all was ok. A very standard and basic hotel with the bathroom joining into the bedroom with no privacy at all. A very strange... More

Nice place with typical Radisson quality rooms.We had a nice Ocean view. The only thing that could be better is the number of elevators. There are only two for the hotel nevertheless we had an awesome stay and surely will be back for another vacation
