This is a beautiful hotel, however, our experience was soured by the theft of my carry on luggage on the third day of our two-week honeymoon. I have a police report and am working with our insurance company to be reimbursed, but money can't compensate for the inconvenience (lost: glasses, Blackberry, keys to home and car, South Africa travel guide, manual to new camera, etc.) and upsetting feeling of violation that ensued. We have traveled the world and have never had such a disappointing, avoidable experience at a hotel. The police told us crime is expected to get worse as the World Cup nears, so be extra careful. And, definitely don't leave your bags in the "safe keeping" of the co-owner (but do enjoy her banana bread, it's pretty good)!
