We stayed in 110 - bottom floor. I would stay away from that side due to proximity to car park. Pool facing will be better. We ended here unplanned as it was too late to drive back to JHB - luckily we had a change of clothes. They could not pick up my Prokard details which i found strange as i logged into my account using my mobile. I was disappointed that the prokard rate was about the same as the walk-in rate. As they struggled with prokard profile - i had to just take the walk-in rates.
We were tired so opted for the buffet supper. The home made chilli sauce was the bomb! variety was not that good for a Saturday night. Only had Chicken, Wors and Pork for main protein. They had a grill and when i asked what was available for grill - nothing for the buffet - only the a-la-carte. This is disappointing - at least have some fish or steak for a weekend?
The food/beverage manager on shift that night was great. We had 2 families with 3 kids of various ages. The kids were running around and playing with the balloons - especially our little 3yr old. They set up the PS4 for the other kids. Some people at supper complained about the noise around the time the kids were ready for bed - so we went to sleep.
Breakfast was good - usual fanfare. I expected to see more fresh fruit - melons were not sweet and juicy. good breakfast.
