We had a brief stop for one night at this hotel on our tour of South Africa. It gives the impression it is out to impress with a lovely reception area and welcoming staff. We were given a room with an amazing sea view. The room and indeed everywhere in the hotel was very clean to a fault. The room... More

Some strange design features in the room however; the cupboard containing the safe was level with the side of... More

Quietly located across the road from the beach, the hotel has a few options nearby for cafes and bars. The entertainment precinct is also a few blocks away with a cool light show on a Saturday night. A small mall is a block away for any supermarket needs. Hotel restaurant was very nice, the full breakfast is also very good.... More

When we first arrived to our room the front door lock didn't work, we had to wait a while for maintenance to arrive and let us in. We only stayed one night, and that night apparently the in house movies didn't work. There was apparently a technician fixing it. Not a super great place to stay. Try closer to town.

One of the few hotels to guarantee WiFi - needed as husband travels with work! Good location on beachfront. Stunning views from upper rooms. Interesting bathroom - see through loo doors - and very open plan. Good beds and usual coffee/tea facilities. Room service - don't bother - waited an hour and two phone calls, to be told they didn't... More

Great view of the ocean from our 9th floor room. Room was well furnished & beds were comfortable. Very close to beach & walkways along beach front. A little bit of a walk to restaurants but short distance to many choices to eat if driving. Staff is friendly and helpful.
