My husband and I live in Cape Town South Africa, and for many years we never ever wanted to visit Durban again, because of a previous nasty experience that we had there.
One of our grandsons was going to be swimming at the Olympic trials that were being held in Durban this month, so as proud grandparents we decided to go and support him. Our son-in-law booked us into the Southern Sun North beach hotel and I must admit that I became very excited at going, as we heard that they were revamping the hotel and that it was on the beach front of Durban and very safe to walk to the swimming pool where the trials were being held.
To our surprise we found the hotel to be absolutely wonderful and clean, with the most delicious huge breakfasts. The beach front was spotlessly clean and so well kept that we voted it the cleanest Beach front in South Africa.
We are now looking so forward to going to the next trials and sincerely hope that the municipality of Durban keeps up the good work.
