My spouse and I bokked the valentines package for the 13th.Included in the package was supper,breakfast the next morning and a valentine package which included a rose>chocolates,a bottle of champagne(for which I requested a bottle of Monis as I dont drink)and strawberries.The supper was okay as some of the food wasnt well cooked and the other thing that I didnt like was that the floor manager made no attempt to seat us downstairs yet there was ample space.finally a very nice gentleman organised us a place.The next morning we went down for breakfast and to our dismay and disappointment there was a mile long que,so we did not have the breakfast.The room was nice and clean and very comfortable but my question is why did we not receive what we were promised in the package?Is this a way of lurring people with false promises?

Stayed at the Hotel over Christmas. Check in was excellent, the guys at the reception were so friendly & helpful. The room was spotlessly clean though l would appreciate it more with a fridge. Breakfast was the best ever, will definately be coming back

It was nice and clean and the staff was friendly. The view was ok (side view of ocean) and the beach was great. The area was dangerous though and scarey at night. Only go out in groups of 6 or more. Friends of ours were mugged and one was knocked out cold (a woman friend to boot). So would go to the hotel in another city, but not Durban.
