It's set up to be a 5-star but I give it 3-star. Potential is there but The serenity/ambience/scenery/rooms, are all 10-star but sadly that's where it ends - as someone has already put it. A few things I simply didn't find acceptable.....
1) No internet in the rooms. In today's world wi-fi is a must. I come from a 4th world country and there's free wi-fi available in virtually every hotel you move to. I expected better from a 5-star. Internet is only available in the lounge area. In other words, the rooms are simply a resting place.
2. Security appears lapse. In a highly insecure country like South Africa, you expect some king of "presence" of security personnel. I was there for one week but didn't see a single security personnel.
3. Yes there's DSTV but i wonder how they cannot have CNN or BBC on their menu....in addition to the fact that there's no internet in the rooms.
4. The conference rooms are just basic - nothing to add here.
