The 3 rooms I booked for my family were perfect for our needs. They were ideal for our purpose of being able to get around with minimal fuss. The beach over the road, Ushaka Marine World just a short trip away, restaurants and coffee shops in easy walking distance made the stay memorable. The staff were attentive to our needs...
