The bar used lime cordial in margaritas which made them undrinkably vile. The service here was not great as he staff had not been trained properly. The food menu was small and underwhelming and despite being told orders would arrive within 30 min, they took over an hour.

Often trampled by the bus loads of tourists trundling their suitcases thru the lobby, we figure they all hide in their rooms at night to save money... only 4 of us in the Tusk Bar after dinner.
My wife's zambucca was brought in the usual zambucca glass. On receiving the bill, the bar lady assured me it was a double......what is her idea of a single? - a part filled little glass?
I paid it, because I felt the bar needed the money. Bless.

We enjoyed trying a variety of local wines during our stay, and their specialty coffees were a great way to end the evening. They serve a mean mojito too!

Very slow service - took forever to make a pina colada. The tapas served in the afternoon were very enjoyable.

We had a great time sitting on the balcony overlooking the pool drinking springboks. The staff were very friendly and made us most welcome.
