We spent 4 nights in this fantastic hotel last week and every aspect of of stay was superb. We were personally greeted on arrival by Mr Coetzer and were made to feel very special. Our room was delightful with a fantastic view of the lighthouse and ocean. It was very comfortable and luxurious, tastefully decorated with African/Colonial artifacts. The bathroom was faultless with the most amazing shower. There was the most fantastic array of food available for selection for breakfast, which we enjoyed on the scenic terrace taking in the breathtaking views. Our children enjoyed the pools, the main pool is an infinity pool with views of the lighthouse and sea, whilst the garden pool is in the tranquil setting of the tropical garden. Dinner was taken on terrace and everything we tasted by the award winning Kevin Joseph and his team was fantastic. The freshly prepared and cooked waffles and pancakes were a firm favorite for breakfast with the children. Each and every member of staff were so helpful and friendly ensuring we received exceptional service throughout our stay. High Tea was truly memorable with the pianist playing throughout. The Lighthouse Bar was another spectacular part of the hotel and perfect for an after dinner drink. Well done to Mr Coetzer and his fantastic team for a truly memorable stay!
