The hotel was new & in a desirable location. The room was very modern & clean.
There was a lovely pool area but.......
Problem with this place. Customer Service, non existent. For example, there were 3 laptops for guest use. The lamp near the laptop I was trying to use, was out. I spoke with at least three different employees & they all smiled & walked away & did nothing.
One of the laptops was locked. We tried to get assistance from an employee. Once again, a smile & no one even tries to help or get help.
They also have a lounge & bar area with music that is very nice & popular.
Also, watch your luggage. A couple that was on the tour with us did not have their luggage delivered to their room. It took a few hours but it was located in an empty room.
The staff needs training in customer service. Protea is a chain hotel & they should know better.
