“Magnificent Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

The service I received from the central reservations to the front desk clerk was very good and efficient. The three ice machines maybe were not coping because of the demand. The Dinning restaurant cannot be serious and call three fried calamari's as a R45 starter

Dear Valued Guest

Thank you so much for your valued feedback. We are planning a refurb to our foyer area, and will look at the capacity of the ice machines. I am worried that your portion size was not correct, and am personally looking into that.

We are so glad that you were happy with the reception service, and look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Kind regards
Amar

There is a need for separate room for children as there some times adult privacy needed. Can there be a touring guide included in the bookings package. Or guide brouchers be made available when checking in.

We were a family of 16 in total booked in from the 6th Jan 2014 until 12th Jan 2014.
The breakfast variety was excellent with a big thumbs up to one of your staff members Mr. Tony Tennant who always goes out of his way to accommodate everyone who needs assistance. Being it grouping our family close together or fixing the coffee machine or even clearing tables, this man was the one who organised it all.
Overall, the staff as a whole is friendly and helpful from the front desk throughout.
Please find attached video clips which were taken showing staff taking their duties seriously.

Room Tip: All rooms are facing the ocean. Rooms on the north have a better view over the ocean and beach ente...
