We nearly missed this gem as it is not well advertised or signposted. We just stumbled upon it in the dark one night! Fabulous place to spend a warm summer evening.

We used this venue for an Italian Meal on our first night in PE. It was very crowded to start with, but quietened down later in the evening. There were wonderful fountain displays every hour. With lights and music. Very pretty to watch. It felt very safe there.

We visited around sunset and the fountains were amazing, they lasted for a good 10mins at least. They were so much better than the Dubai fountains we saw recently. Reminded me a lot of Florida. We spent R100 in the arcades playing on the random games. The shops are a bit overpriced but definitely worth a visit as not much... More

Took a Sunday stroll around the boardwalk.... musicians playing near the car park entrance ..would not have been so bad if the mike and speakers were not blown (or they sounded like they were)...and the music was so loud we could not speak to each other. Decided not to eat here as just too noisy. ...pity as it's a nice... More

You need to look no further if you require a great facility for hosting small to large conferences . This is indeed the best possible location and it has all the bells and whistles.
