Many things to like about this hotel. First thing you'll notice is the beautiful building style and architecture of the hotel itself. When walking in you'll find a large lobby and beautiful flowers and chandeliers. The security is fantastic as well with 24/7 representatives all over the campus including the elevator doors. The breakfast is a huge buffet that includes many American items that I liked. You can even order your own omelets and such just the way you like it. There are two pools but I only swam in the indoor heated one. The outdoor one has a beautiful view of the boardwalk and water. Also used the fitness center that has a solid amount of equipment. The location of the hotel could not be better as it is next to many shopping stores and markets. If you gamble the casino is huge (smoking and non-smoking). Another nice feature is the nightly water fountain show in the middle of the hotel campus. Overall it reminds me of a disneyland hotel if you've ever been to one of those and it is great for families or even couples. Will stay here for sure if I come back to Port Elizabeth!
