We stayed here for 11 nights over Christmas & New Year. Overall no complaints & we selected based on trip advisor reviews + wanted somewhere with something going on over the festive period. We have 2 young babies & as it turns out did not spend a great deal of time in & around the hotel itself. The main consideration for us was the room - which we went for suite so we could have access to fridge, hot water, sink etc for all the baby needs. The room was a reasonable size & slept us comfortably - maybe a little tired but this is not unusual for a high turnaround family hotel. This also gave access to the Kings Club on the top floor - which was a bonus for breakfasts & evening drinks. Johan & the team gave us great personal service - for which many thanks. The breakfasts there were nice & eggs cooked to order & a lovely view from the 6th floor balcony. Not sure about the regular breakfast room - we went down just to take a look but seemed hot & crowded. A couple o personal gripes - 1) No fresh orange juice at breakfast - something resembling that watered down & the same for apple & mango. 2) Too much sand around the pool for our liking - not even possible to walk all around the pool without stepping in sand. Though the pool is big - we found limited outdoor space. Ultimately - we did not eat in the hotel other than breakfasts & also went to some festive functions which seemed better at other hotels. I guess they are all pretty similar & we did not see the rooms at other hotels, but next time would probably select another. The staff throughout the hotel were very polite & helpful - which should also mention.
