We have been in this hotel last week. It was a short stay but we had the opportunity to compare the hotel vs all others we visited during a wonderful 2-weeks trip in South Africa. We ranked it Top 1 in a list of well-known brand hotels. Great location, wonderful staff.. we had a delicious welcome in a sunny afternoon and we got an upgrade from s superior room to a junior suite. Rooms were beautiful, exposed to the sea and distributed on 3 levels. All perfectly clean, we felt like at home! We decided to spend the full day in the hotel, to get some rest but also to profit of such nice venues. The staff was extremely kind and professional, from the person at the reception to the ladies in charge of cleanings. And they were always discreet.. We had dinner (and breakfast) in the restaurant there and despite it was nice, we would have expected a broader menu. Also, during the dinner, the assigned waiter looked a bit upset (or better, not oriented to smile with us), we felt this a bit strange. Anyway, the hotel was great and we strongly recommend it. For sure, we will get there when travelling again to South Africa.
