Everything was perfect, from the first to last day of our stay. The breakfast, the rooms were clean, the lady who did housekeeping was also nice and friendly. We enjoyed our stay and we definitely coming back soon.

Everyone knows that South Africa has a lot of issues with crime. There isn’t a house or building that doesn’t have high levels of security precautions in place. It’s a given. So why is it that anybody can walk in off the street and onto an elevator and wander the halls at will in this hotel? I stayed at several South African hotels on this trip, including their sister property in Cape Town, and security was properly in place and enforced. The bar and lounge were chaotic. One woman in our group was followed into an elevator by a random guy off the street. She barely escaped an assault/robbery and only then because another couple happened to emerge from their room as she passed by with the guy close behind. This is a recipe for disaster and must be addressed.
The rooms are very basic and small but as we only stayed one night, we didn’t care that much. It would not have been comfortable for a longer stay. All in all, I would have given this one star, but then I woke up and saw the view. It’s outstanding and every room in the place looks out on that gorgeous beach. It’s also in a perfect location.
Stationing security at the elevators, controlling who wanders in and out and much-needed upgrades to the rooms would catapult this hotel onto the desirable list. As it is, though, I can’t recommend this hotel at all.

This is an amazing venue during school holidays. Right opposite the beach front and walking distance from Sharker Marine. Breakfast is a feast. There are two breakfast areas. Staff is friendly. Beach towels available. Amazing place

The hotel was very disappointing as they allow smoking in the rooms so when you get off the lift the passage smell awful and full of smoke and stale. The rooms need to be upgraded as the bathroom has a shower wher you have to standin the bath and the shower curtian does not close all the way round so water everywhere. the breakfast were good roomservice food was expensive and not worth the money. The hotel is in a good space with the beach just over the road
