The hotel is situated just by the ocean with a fantastic, sandy terrass with natural shade provided by the palm trees. The pool and bar area is also very nice with lots of green and shade and nice furniture for sitting and working or a fantastic spot for sun downers. Decent sized and clean pool. Rooms are of nice size... More

It is an amazing hotel, very high quality, close to America and European standards. However, if you pay USD 190 per room per night, you expect a bit more... The rooms are very spacious, good bed and Internet, however the airlines leaks and the bathroom could have been maintained a bit better. Being in Africa and reaching that quality is... More

While this may be an idyllic setting and the most of the staff are brilliant their quality control is severely lacking and they need to work on this. The fact that sometimes you get great service and sometimes you get really bad service is not appealing to someone who wants a long stay and uses the hotel for many services.

This is a well situated hotel on the peninsula, so if your business is there, it will be convenient. The rooms are large and comfortable, particularly in the new wing.

position is nice - pay attention to the rooms: some are very nice, some are noisy (for instance near the elevators) and/or very humid (the floor was completely wet). Restaurant has a very limited menu and is more expensive and of lower level that other restaurants in the area such as Capetown Fish Market or the one at Slipway. Personnel... More

Nice feel to the place overall, good holiday vibe to it in a kind of hacienda way, not too modern and cold, but warm and authentic feeling. That is except for the restaurant which is not that appealing nor is the food they produce. The staff are fantastic though and the room was massive with a lovely large balcony, bed... More
