“Little Gem”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

Was very surprise after we had to change our original date, due to double booking on their side! The room was beautiful decorated with a amazing open plan bathroom with a water feature! It was so relaxing! From our balcony ,we had a glimps of the sea and Salt Rock. Management were very helpful and had gone out of their way to make our stay there a bliss. The dinner menu was a bit small , but we enjoyed the food. Breakfast buffet had a nice variety .There are beautiful art galleries in Umlali to visit, curry restaurant is a must in Tinley Manor. Beautiful beaches and interesting places in Balito!
On the down side, this didn't feel like 4 star boutique hotel. Small things lack that you expected to find in such hotels! The entrance hall is definitely a down fall ! There must be a major change to fit the 4 star category.Overall , we enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in room number 5 that was a family room, but it was more spacious and the view from there...

Great place to stay & very conveniently situated just off the main beach road.
Rooms are clean, well furnished & all your needs are met.
The staff are friendly and helpful.
The food in the hotel restaurant was very good and the buffet breakfasts were also good, with ample variety.
The parking is safe and ample.

Room Tip: Room 10 lead out onto the Jacuzzi.

Wow what a lovely little place.we had so many un-normal requests and never once did the management or staff shudder. It was so refreshing to be able to have everything sorted. The actual room was beyond amazing and the bath was the tip of the cherry on top... Ausomeness.... I was relaxed and very happy with the service the accommodation and the food!

We booked just one night and would have loved to stay longer. Did not get a chance to visit the jacuzi or the pool. Definitely will be back for a longer stay.
Food was excellent. Staff friendly and efficient and the room well maintained and had all the necessary to make the stay very enjoyable indeed.
Will be back.

Room Tip: Stayed in Room No 1 and it was perfect.

A great place to stay - lovely bedrooms which are well equipped with tea, coffee and fresh milk in the fridge, good food and a stone's throw from the beach - almost perfect!! We were made to feel welcome and very relaxed
