We had a criteria and that was it must be a hotel on the beach with amazing views and include breakfast and we must view the room prior to booking the room. Being south African we knew it was a weekday out of peak season ,we were spoilt for choice but by far this hotel met our criteria and was...

Our room had a wonderful view but that's where it ended. The room had a bad smell, the bed was very hard, could just as well been sleeping on the floor, the safe didn't work, and we do know how how to use them! Old travelers! The bathroom was not clean, in fact the cleaning materials had been left lying...

If seascapes talk to your soul, this is a heavenly conversation. Absolute views over an endless ocean, topped with in-room dining of your choice is an adventure in luxury. Beautiful rooms - the suites on 11th floor are fabulous - create memories of future returns. As a return guest over many years, it keeps improving and remains a highlight. Highly...

This hotel by far has the best views of the ocean .I have ever seen. The food is great would recommend the cheddarmelt steak and vegetables and the waitress Varirty provides excellent service. The cleaning staff is also so friendly and honest she ran into the parking after me with my slippers. Really would visit this place again and bring...

We visited for one night only and at check-in advised them we wanted to book for evening meal. We were advised that meals will be served from 7pm on the 1st floor. At 7 we went down for the meal and everything was dark and deserted. On enquiry at the front desk we were sent to 2 other venues in...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. It is unfortunate that you had such an experience. Just to clarify: We do not serve dinner on the 1st floor as it is our breakfast area and is used at times for private functions. Secondly, we serve dinner on the ground floor until 22:00 at night, 7 days a week, 365 days...

We loved our suite. It was huge, and like all the rooms, overlooked the Indian Ocean. Fantastic sunrises! But, the hotel is a bit faded and our suite smelled pretty moldy. They advertised having internet but it was essentially non-existent (The hotel staff repeatedly said, "they're coming to look at it.") The restaurant provided an o.k. breakfast; nothing special, but...

Reviewed 9 July 2016

We stayed in a family room and every night they made the bed for our son and cleaned the room every morning when we went for breakfast. Therefore it was always clean and we had more space. I enjoyed the balcony with its 110% view. We will definitely be back. Real value for money and the breakfast was also great.

From the moment we walked in the service was friendly and efficient. It is relaxing to sit on the balcony of the hotel room and look at the beach & sea. The rooms are spacious and well-taken care off. The first night we ordered room service and the food was excellent, especially the calamari (soft, tender & tasty). The breakfast...
