Protea Hotel by Marriott Port Elizabeth Marine
Ranked #7 of 13 Hotels in Summerstrand
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Very convenient location near to Boardwalk, where you can find a bunch of restaurants and stores. Overall good, but not fantastic. Just cross the road to get to the beach.
The furniture was not that new, but room and bathroom were very clean. Breakfast was very good, big buffet with many choices of bread And juices.
Although, its a big Company hotel, much more impersonal and not as cosy as a b&b.

Stayed: September 2012, traveled as a couple

We were here for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed the Hotel. Staff was courteous, helpful and check in and out was a breeze. Room was very comfortable and roomy!. beautiful view of the Bay. Dinner Buffet and Breakfast Buffet were each spectacular. Food was delicious, lots of choice and wait staff were very pleasant. Chef was a great person with a real accommodating sense of service to the people. I wold highly recommend this hotel and felt it was good value.

Room Tip: Ask for a Sea view room, if available, a beautiful view of Nelson Mandela Bay.

We stayed here for a night during our trip to Garden Route. We had booked ourselves in a "family room" - and were pleasantly surprised to see a 2BR like room. 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a nice living area and well-stocked kitchen area.

The location is fantastic... cross the road and you are on the beach. Just a short distance to the boardwalk casio/mall - lots of restaurant choices here.

The hotel is well maintained and rooms / furniture seems recently renovated.

Just found one downside... the bathroom design - while it is provisioned for elderly / specially abled access - the water runs out of the shower area.

We stayed at this hotel for 13 nights this month. On the whole we were very impressed with it. We had a beautiful room with a very modern shower. We liked having the tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge in the room.
The downside were that the majority of the reception staff seemed very surly. They struggled to raise a smile or even greet you when you passed through reception. There was no concierge and the receptionists were quite unhelpful. When we asked for directions to a local attraction one morning, the reply was, "I don't know. I've never been there". We expected better in a 4 star hotel.
On the otherhand, Wellington, who was the porter/commissionaire should be singled out for praise for his friendliness and helpfulness. He always had a smile on his face and a friendly demeanour. He was a pleasure to talk to and a very interesting person who took pride in his work.
Overall we enjoyed our time there but didn't enjoy running the gauntlet of the miserable receptionists each day. If this aspect were improved it would be an excellent place to stay.

Stayed at this hotel as part of a Kulula holiday package, booked for Ironman South Africa 2012. The hotel has been recently renovated, and is in great condition. My room was ready ahead of schedule, and was spacious and airy, even though I chose the non-sea facing option. I was impressed by their effort to "go green" with LED down-lights used throughout. The hotel has a small gym and pool on a really pleasant deck with great views of the ocean. Their are lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance, and the hotel surrounds and beach front was clean, well kept, and felt safe. The airport is less than 6km away! There was always plenty of parking. I was also impressed by some of the other small, but appreciated gestures ... knowing that a lot of guests were taking part in Ironman, it was a really nice touch to provide (free) mineral water and energy drinks in the room's fridge, and the offer to provide a packed breakfast, to be ready at 4am was great. The only thing I couldn't seem to get to work was the WiFi, which appeared to be a charged-for service. Offering this (limited, of course) for free would have been the cherry on the top. I will definitely stay again, especially if (when?) I do Ironman again. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: I don't think you can go wrong! The hotel is right by the beach, but its surprisingly quiet. If...

This is a great find. Beautifully renovated hotel, on the beach with excellent breakfast. The room was large and comfortable. There was free internet for up to 200 mg. It is across the street from the magnificent beach. There is a lovely restaurant next door with good food.

Room Tip: Facing the ocean
