The Elangeni is situated on the promenade making it a great location for quick access to the beach for a swim or long walks on the promenade which offers some nice little cafe's for a drink/ ice cream. It is also closely located to Ushaka Marine World.
The rooms are comfortable & clean as one would expect of a Southern Sun. The hotel has a business feel & you are received in that way too. Views from the rooms are lovely.
Hotel gym is very small with very limited equipment - this was not a very popular place for the time I spent there so I guess it does not receive too much attention.
The pool area on the 2nd floor is really great for breakfast or a cocktail. There breakfast has a nice variety of options to choose from.
The only little fault I would say I found a little inconvencied by was the very poor wifi service.
Other than that it is a great hotel and the stay is a pleasurable one.
