A warm welcome with delicious cookies. Nice hotel, clean, quiet rooms. They really were lovely, from reception, room staff, bar and restaurant staff. Meals were excellent. Road of hotel from main road was poor.

Really terrible value for money - give it a miss, you can get the same or better at half the price 200 m down the beach. The roof was covered in blue plastic, the pool tiles were lose and coming off. The grounds were overgrown and un-kept. Not good at all for R2500 a night. seriously, give it a miss.... More
