The setting on the ac would have been more comfortable if a little lower and stocking up on cocktail ingredients would be a great improvement.
The staff really made my stay and there was nothing they wouldn't do to ensure all requests were met with a smile, a special thanks to Themba on night shift who went over and beyond.

There was only 1 coffee mug, we were 2 guests For an executive suite - there was nothing in the bar fridge The plugs tripped at 06h15 ( so we could not make coffee, no aircon, no tv, no hairdryer) and it took maintenance till 08h30 to come and look into the problem - by that time we had gone for breakfast and were on our way to check out.

No staff after 4 pm which poses challenges when you are arriving very late and needing assistance.
The place is within reach of the beach. Very comfortable and feels like home.

Often missing towels - it needs escalation to get it, bad timing of room cleaning. To get coffee or tea for the breakfast takes time and you have to approach them and ask for it.
Nice facility & rooms, good restaurants and nice beach close to the hotel.

Only one receptionist when we checked in and he had to answer the phone a couple of times whilst we waited. Fortunately, we hadn't travelled far but if we had just arrived from overseas we would have been very frustrated with the wait.
Good location on the sea front, Lovely room with sea view. Good bathroom with full size bath and separate shower. Bar staff were very friendly.

The staff was rude and unprofessional. Very unhelpful and gave the impression that we were a burden for them. I will never stay here again

Great location overlooking the harbour and within easy walking distance of bars and restaurants

The location of the hotel, nearby a lot of good restaurants... But, the must was the staff : very friendly and professional. The rooms are very spacious and all with sea view. That hotel is perfect for vacations and business. Became one of my favourites now !... Have to go back.

The noise from building works in the room next door. The expensive breakfast.
The swimming pool. The location.
