We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Protea Couryard Hotel. The rooms are very comfortable and the courtyard is a lovely place to relax. Our group particularly valued the good work that Protea is doing to support community development programs and their commitment to sustainability.

Breakfast too - full of choices, fresh fruit, champagne and everything you need. Serengeti beer poolside cold and served in a frosty glass. Rooms...

The staff is so nice and accommodating. Excellent food, and a very beautiful courtyard with a pool. It had great ambiance. They offer buffet style breakfast with several options so there is something for everyone. Wonderful place to stay.

We've stayed at this Protea a number of times and always love the home away from home feeling. This time we did run into a more serious problem in our room and had no real response from the management other than a quick verbal "we are sorry" and then we were given I think the most cramped room in the...

We stayed at Protea Courtyard just before we boarded a ship for a three week cruise. At the end of the cruise I realized I had left a dress at the Protea hotel. It is a favorite dress of my four year old grandson, who always says "That's beeootiful!" when I wear it. Naturally, I was sad to lose it....

What a beautiful and distinct hotel and what amazing, friendly staff! I couldn't recommend the hotel highly enough. I was just sorry I wasn't staying longer than two separate nights to take advantage of the pool, dining by the pool in the evening and the gym, which all looked superb. The hotel has great character and the staff were all...

After half a day in town it's really nice to get back to this small oasis where you can enjoy the garden pool. The rooms are clean and nice. The food is good. From the hotel it takes about 10 min to the city center. We will defintely come back!
