          As good as an average commercial chain. Good for business. Clean and close to the beach. I thought the internet service is disappointing considering the rate for a weeknight! For this class of hotel I would expect free wifi at good speed! Else/no problem

          Dissatisfactory service, first impressions is lasting impressions, very terrible stay. The name Elangeni did not live up to our expectations that the way it should. Absolutely disappointed with my stay at your hotel.

          Our stay at the maharani was lovely from checkin to checkout. All staff courteous. Excellent beds and linens. The breakfast is somewhat drab. I would love to see more freshly prepared foods. No matter which room you are you have a view on the ocean.
