“Beautiful and great hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2007

Very beautiful and with incredible facilities. In the Emperor´s Palace complex, with a huge casino and other two 3 stars hotels, D´oreale Grande is a 5 star hotel. It has a great spa, wonderful swiming pool, nice restaurant and a warm decoration. The rooms are very nice and well decorated with all the facilities of a 5 star hotel.
5 minutes from de International Airport. Great location, great place.

We only stayed in this fantastic hotel for one night between flights from the US to Cape Town. Let me tell you what a beautiful facility it is! Yes, it is located next to the casino but there are no influences from the casino on the hotel (i.e. - no gaming machines in the common areas). The pictures of the suite we stayed in tell the whole story! Breakfast the following morning was fit for a king. You name it they have it! The other couple we were traveling with stayed in a standard room which was also well appointed and crisp with a very comfortable bed! Great place to stay! Plus the grounds are immaculate!

  • Liked — The room!
  • Disliked — That we couldn't stay longer!
  • Tips/Secrets — Try it, you will like it!

The D'Oreale was a great place. We stayed there for two nights while passing through Jo'burg on the way home. The hotel is attached to Emperor's palace, a large casino/entertainment complex approx 5 miles from the airport. The complex has a large arcade, a wide range of restaurants (some very good!), and a few stores.

My comments regarding the hotel:
- Excellent condition and maintenance, very well appointed
- Excellent service.
- Nice health club/spa
- Fantastic breakfast
- Attached casino and entertainment center is great. Highly recommend the South African restaruant (don't remember the name).
- Large arcade for kids (but expensive)
- Very nicely appointed.
- Regular shuttle to airport.
- Security for cars is very good.

The downsides:
- Pool was large and nice but freezing! No indoor pool (minor point)
- If you're not into gambling the options are limited. There is not much in the area (other than the airport).

This is a great place for a night or two while passig through Jo'burg (particularly due to proximity to the airport). It woudl also be great for a weekend of fun. But, there isn't much in the immediate vicinity.

A general comment about SA travel (not related at all to D'oreale). Security is good and we felt safe at all times but I was a target of an ATM scam. Most ATMs are inside small (3M x 3M) rooms to provide privacy while using the machine. I went to a machine in Cape Town near teh V&A (tourist area). When I went to enter the room with the ATM there was another man in the corner pretending to count the money he just took from the ATM. I waited for him to finish but he motioned me to come in to use the machine. I entered my card but the screen didn't make sense. He leaned over to 'help' by resetting the machine to the proper screen (OK, it should have been obvious somethign was happening but it seemed very innocent at the time!). The machine then reset to a screen that made sense and I entere my PIN (without paying attention to him). I took my money and left.

Later I rec'd a call from VISA and they told me that my purchasing habits were unusual and they went through some of the charges. Obviously I had been scammed. I don't know how they obtained the card data, I suspect the guy was looking over my shoulder or had a camera when I entered my PIN. The recommendation: Make sure you are alone in the room, cover your hand while entering the PIN and, most importantly, if something is weird then get out! I should not have entered the room with him present and I should have pulled my card and left as soon as it seemed fishy. Live and learn. Visa gave me the money back despite the fact that it was my fault.

Don't let this scare you off - we had a great time in SA. Just remember to be careful, particularly around ATMs (ATM scams are common).
