We only had one night following our arrival to South Africa having decided to buck the trend and travel the opposite way along the Garden route to Cape Town. We selected the hotel due to its reputation and location and on arrival were not disappointed unlike a number of people we met during our trip who tried to book late...

חדרים מעולים, אך מתאימים יותר לזוגות ולא למשפחות, ולא למי שיש לו בעיית פרטיות... Superb rooms, but would fit lovers or couples on a honey moon rather than families, because of the bathroom structure which is open and doesn't leave any place for privacy. The view from the 14th floor was outstanding, including a chance to watch some dolphins. Breakfast...

I checked in at this hotel on 18 April 2017. Very well positioned and good courteous staff. I complained about the toilet not functioning properly and the basin not draining. I spoke to 3 staff during the day and was promised that it would be taken care of and that the Manager would be informed. No response until I checked...

Modern Interior finishes and a great view of the immediate area and beach. Great service and hospitality. Very conveniently located to everything the beach, shops etc. The breakfast is a bit pricey so we opted to eat out. Otherwise a pleasant stay and will definitely visit again.

This hotel is more or less like many other big hotels, nothing extra and not too personal. The staff was friendly and the room was what you could expected. Open area to the bathroom and shower so you could not really "close the door". The breakfast was really good.

This hotel is in a good location for the beachfront walking, although not near to anything much. The view from the room was fantastic! The reason that I score this hotel so low is due to the cleanliness. The room was not remotely clean enough, and in additional was not well maintained. There were various marks and stains on many...

Good rooms which are comfortable and bathroom facilities which are modern. Decent buffet for dinner and breakfast is fairly standard but could offer more variety. Excellent location right at the beach. Service was good and the entrance/foyer is modern. Offered parking underground.

The hotel was good but this review is really for the service. Our transfer taxi didn't arrive as scheduled and Morris sorted everything out for us with the Safari lodge to arrange a replacement transfer. Even brought us complementary coffees while we waited. Absolute star!

Good location across from the beach. Water a bit cold at this time of the year but lots of space to go for walks or runs. Restaurants and shops nearby. Service was excellent - staff very friendly. Breakfast was included in our rate. Good value for money.
