The property is well sited and well within driving distance to the beaches. We had breakfast there which was good with very little waiting. The service is good but the hotel was not busy so it is difficult to...

This 4-star Hotel is awful and should be closed. Unfortunately, it terrible embarrasses all the tourism industry in South Africa. That as nothing to do with this hotel. I made a reservation for four nights in a deluxe room. When arrived, they gave me a normal room…which had a terrible mal-function in the bathroom… swap room in the same night...
