We stayed at the Casa Do Sol on 29th and 31st of December. This hotel is a bizarre combination of excellence and lacks in basic amendments, a strange mélange of beautifully appointed rooms, with lacking breakfast and reception services.
On the whole in South Africa, service is always friendly and super courteous, albeit somehow slow and not always responsive. The reception is gloomy and small, as is their Wi-Fi signal. A respectable hotel these days can not afford to have clients disconnected for the 2 day span they are staying in the hotel. This is a problem that must be rectified, as it’s an integral part of judging hotel’s quality these days.
So in a way it’s like 2 hotels in one. You have the entry and dining area, which resemble more of a 3 star hotel. And then you have the grounds and the rooms, which are 4 star minimum, at times even better. The rooms are beautiful, all built in Spanish style, like a big Hacienda. The suite rooms are huge, well lit, beautiful and spacious. The small private gardens of each room are fabulous, and the surrounding grounds divine.
Don't eat at the hotel, as food is not on par as the rooms, and breakfast really needs to be spiced up!
with all the afore-mentioned, I warmly recommend this hotel for the rooms and grounds. But something must be done with the reception and dining room, and especially with the Wi-Fi, as it is basic and elementary, and at times a major consideration for people to know whether to book a room or not. Wi-Fi should be installed in every room, and not in the lobby. But even if it’s only in the lobby, it should work!
