Me and my fiance spent 2 nights at this hotel in Feb. 2012. We chose the hotel entirely for the location and on that point we were pleased, just a few minutes walk to the beach that had lifeguards and right next to that was a mall with a food court. Just a few minutes drive to Ushaka Marine World which had a nice aquarium in an old shipwreck, worth visiting. A few restaurants around, all of which seemed to belong to hotels. The food at Belaire's restaurant was fine, a bit slow service though. Lots of people walking, jogging along the beach. We used their carpark and had no problems with the car.
The room itself was comfortable but quite boring I would say, no details at all to make it home-friendly. We had a room on the 10th floor, decent view when the windows were open (quite dirty windows), AC, fridge, TV, etc. The service wasn't great at check-in, the receptionist wasn't particularly friendly or knowledgable and it turns out she charged us for 3 night even though we were there for 2, so at check-out we had to wait for ages while they tried to figure out the problem and credit our card. They had forgotten to clean the little room in the back (we stayed in flat with place for 4 people), we didn't need it since we were just 2 people so we didn't complain. Breakfast was ok, lots of choices but nothing special.
