My husband and I visited for three days over a long weekend. We have no children so I will first review it as a family resort and then from an adult only point of view.
FAMILY: All rooms have sleeping place for 4, semi-self-catering with microwave, sink , kettle and basic crockery available. Not full self-catering. In foyer the Spur and coffee shop are all super kid friendly with joy park arcade room and sweets from heaven shop as an added bonus. Both kid friendly pool and adult friendly pools. Liked the separation of the two pool areas for those guest opting for some quietness. In general super child friendly hotel with numerous activities on site and close by for children.
ADULT: Room was stunning with view over the ocean was breath-taking. Room was spacious with all basic amenities, not too outdated as a previous reviewer mentioned. The bed was firm and super comfy. Satellite TV with over 20 channels, full variety of options for every taste. Close proximately to the ocean and running routes, very safe with security guards at every exit. No safety concerns as the area itself is very safe too. Only thing was the room was not 100% clean, smudges on windows and on some surfaces. Linen and towels were however 100% clean.
Overall the location was excellent, close to many bars, restaurants, major shopping malls and the beach. Good service from hotel staff and friendly, attentive, helpful staff. We even got majorly discounted Ushaka marine world card tickets, R100 normally R185. It is definitely a 4-star location and hotel in general.
