Fantastic place to stay!! Management and employees treat you like family. Riaan and the “chef” are amazing people. Shopping is very good with a variety of many things. A few rooms still need to be upgraded.

Sorry, I do not know the difference between a standard and an executive room. I stayed in a spacious room which did not have an ocean view. Frankly, the pool area, and the restaurant are all outside and I spent my time at the hotel outdoors; I used the room to sleep and shower.
