The staff were all amazing and couldn't do enough for you. Always there to sort out any problems. The resturants are terrific and very good food.fantastic views.
Rooms To small. Bathroom 's 2class hotels.
The outside porters.
Enjoyed the attention to detaill from the staff. The inroom dining service was excellent as well as guest services.
Vegetarian breakfast: not enough variety. Foods are mixed with meat dishes making it difficult for us to serve as other residents use same serving spoons to dish out meat and veg.
The swimming pool.
BREAKFAST!!!!! Mainly! Lovely sea view, and very relaxing bar.
Staff were truly exceptional. One remembered me from a trip 2 years ago, and another helped me find a rose for a colleague whose birthday it was -- literally while I was waiting for my cab to arrive. Nice people, very competent.
The view and breakfast
Caught the chambermaid washing our coffee cups in a dirty bin in our presence.,Took a video about the matter....
The food and the view and the personnel very pleasant....
Check-in too sluggish, reception staff took too long to find my reservation Room too small, considering the cost. Apart from the size, the furniture was basic.
The strong smell of cigarettes coming To My room was very unpleasant. Also paying R50 for parking but still park in an open parking was not nice.
The location of my room was fabulous, sea facing with an amazing view
the time went by too fast
The complementary birthday cake and champagne and the friendly staff each one going out of their way to satisfy and ensure you get what you want when you want it
It was very tranquil.
bums do hang out late at night asking for money. also the pools close at 6pm. and no balconies or ceiling to floor windows for being by the ocean, thats a bummer.
location was perfect. right by the ocean. food was good and service was also fairly good.
I called the reception twice to be assisted with the safe that I found locked, no one came and I met a floor manager told her my problem but still could not get help. I left the hotel still the safe locked.
Closer to the beach & all the entertainment places. The fact that you can access 2 hotels with the price of one. Heated pools is a added bonus if you don't feel like going to the beach.
Everything was excellent nothing that I saw that bothered me
I liked everything the welcoming and helping out with luggage bags
