In general it was a good hotel, however a few issues. Our room was 5103 and was spacious, with a beautiful view from the balcony and a nice powerful shower. The resort was nice, the pool was clean and only steps away from the beach- which was breathtaking. The Spa was fab and, we had 2 massages during our week...

Very nice room, we chose the hotel because of the beautiful African design. We had a relaxing short stay of 2 nights. Nice pool and beach.The buffet/food was not so great, but service was good. It's a little bit remote

The hotel benefits from being located on a sandy beach. The hotel itself is well presented, very well staffed by happy workers. The room are in need of refurbishing, we were in suite 7004 by the pool, over looking the gardens which was delightful. We went to sleep to the sound of the ocean and woke to sunny days and...

We stayed as a large family back in 2012. All the details here are correct and I remember them well as we had the most amazing time. The staff, bar, food, surroundings, rooms and location were all fantastic. The only niggle we had was a rather stroppy and unhelpful member of the management who was very abrupt with us when...

How can this be a Sheraton Hotel, is it some other company? Hotel was pleasant, pool was good but this was more 3 star than 5. Disappointing facilities. One lift wasn't working and had obviously not been working for ages. How can Sheraton lend its name to this hotel. Do not expect 5 star. If you are happy with 3...
