The only good things were the lovely location and the spacious room. Bear in mind when you read this that this place is supposed to be 5 star! The only lift was out of order. The phone in our room was broken and couldn't be fixed. No wifi in the rooms; only in the bar. The pool lounger mattresses were...

Entrance to the hotel is a nightmare. Security process requires your drivers licence and while most will have it, if you do not, you may not get in so easily. Welcome at reception was fine. The lift that was broken in other reviews is still broken. It only affects getting bags from one floor to the next really, but its...

I'm copying the complaining email I sent to the hotel and the hotel group - they have not bothered to reply! I am so disappointed to be writing this email as I was looking forward to a perfect honeymoon. A couple of days of relaxing in luxury. Unfortunately my experience was probably the worst I’ve ever had. 1: Pool -...

So when I booked this hotel - it said there was wifi and on arrival I was informed there is no wifi in the rooms and you have to sit in public areas for access to the internet which was extremely annoying. Additionally, the breakfast was atrocious- stayed for 4 nights and didn't eat it even once. there is little...

Ignore the bad reviews, this place was amazing. First time attending for my 3 year anniversary on the 23 February 2017 and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

The central bath in the bedroom is the master piece! There is an outside small pool which is perfect to me and overlooking a pound and mountains. Hotel is a bit expensive but you get a nice breakfast in. It is a bit of a remote location - about 20/30' from wine farms in stellenbosh - so I recommend having...

Sante is located in the beautiful winelands of Paarl. It is a quick drive from Stellenbosch and Cape Town and is the perfect weekend getaway. Besides the attraction of the beautiful mountains and vineyards, the architecture itself is exquisite. Beautifully decorated. I loved the soft linen and pillows - heavenly sleep. Bakwena spa is also a MUST. The spa offers...
