I chose Maharani because I heard that the room upgrade was completed. However, in terms of Elangeni (where I stayed before), it seems like a downgrade - probably on par with its Garden Court heritage. The webpage did not describe the rooms properly and I ended up with two single beds in one room instead of two doubles. Also, no bath in the room. (Typical Garden Court) Ocean Breeze did mot mark their dishes, they apparently had queues for different ways to prepare eggs with no indication whatsoever. This prompted a visit to a person claiming to be the hotel manager who promised to address this. I avoided this breakfast room for the rest of my stay.
