This place is amazing. We only stayed 2 nights but could have stayed a whole week. It is beautiful and offers the best service one could wish for!
This even started before we even got there. We came in the high tourist season and since the staff worried about not getting tables at local restaurants during the time they contacted our travel agency and checked if it was OK that they had booked restaurants for our stay. The chosen places were wonderful (one directly at the harbor, just a 5 minute walk away, the other one a lovely small seafood restaurant) and not pricey at all! Food was delicious!
Then - when you check in you get to put down a time when you want your morning tea to be served to your room! Never had i even imagined something like that.
It was a bit chilly there and when we got cold we simply called the reception and within few minutes we got a tray with tea, fresh coffee and cookies to our room - free of charge! Breakfast buffet was lovely, too.
There is a lady that offers massages - we took a hot stone massage and it felt just great!
Also, the staff was very helpful booking activities: like boat trip (the whale season was over so they suggested an eco tour) - when the weather was rough in the morning, they informed us it was cancelled but went through lenghts to book something else (horse back riding through the Fynbos).
Rooms were great, too, the garden and pool lovely. It is a perfect place to relax and enjoy South Africa!
