Stayed 1 night (ex Safari and prior to departure to Mauritius) having had the place booked as part of a three week holiday. What an experience! It was 5* accomodation with ALL the trimmings including so many options. In the late afternoon we snacked in an apparently new "Hooters" American 'food outlet' situated prominently within the grounds. The ambience was so tacky it was actually surreal and totally unexpected (in the overall 1st Class environment) and typically American - staff dessed as 'cheer leaders' (dressed al a Baywatch cast) singing loudly encouraging participation whilst wishing a (poor unexpected) guest a Happy Birthday - loud and brash! Ate a burger and similar as a necessary 'snack' prior to a later formal dinner in the 'Aurelia's Restaurant',which is the main hotel restaurant where breakfast is served. This later formal meal was exceptional and in a very subdued,quiet and low key environment - as anticipated and with very good service. Drinks reasonable and the food of very high quality. Settled into our room with ease. Breakfast was exceptional with so many choices including 'ready to go' oysters! Nothing was too much trouble and all food (from many continents)and the individual service was of brilliant quality. The environment was spectacular and plush with a beautiful garden outlook. No faults noted, staff attentive to needs and if you can afford it, it is a must. Gambling is not my thing but the associated Casino seemed busy +++ and appeared to be frequented by locals in the main, who were seemingly intent upon losing all their money - and as quickly as possible. The whole experience was totally bizarre, reminescent of (imagined) scenes from LA and added to the trip hugely. Safety was not an issue (after earlier experiencing Cape town) and the whole night was enjoyable ++++.
So I can only say - go for it and walk about the whole complex, soaking up the various genres. Thanks to all the staff!
