Amazing stay in occasion of our honeymoon, very kind staff, clean and big rooms, wonderful breakfast and amazing sea view from hotel's lobby and our room on the first floor. The hotel is situated in almost 10 minutes walking from the bay. Absolutely to recommend.

Probably the biggest hotel suite we have ever had, and one of the nicest. It was like having our own very new, very clean, very well appointed apartment. We were on the top floor, which (I notice from previous reviews) makes a huge difference. The view from there of the Atlantic Ocean is stunning, and the massive balcony lets you...

This is a fantastic new hotel with a discreet entrance! Come inside the ocean views will blow your mind! Very efficient great team, lovely rooms, ask for the lower level rooms facing the sea for maximum view enjoyment. Great breakfast, they will even cook for you if you ask 24 hours in advance, taxis can be organized for drives to...

Our room had a breathtaking view and was super confortable. Staff were friendly and corteous, specially during breakfast. Made us feel like home. We only wished they had someone at frontdesk during the night and that it wasn't that far from the waterfront ( 20 min - 100 Rands each way). Would still recommend for the price.

But what is even better about this hotel is the staff. Nothing is too much trouble for them! They are professional but also warm and SO helpful! Adele is a...

I heard wonderful things about this hotel but to me it is average at best. I had 3 rooms as I went with my family. Shaver outlet was broken, towels had hair on them. Most of the staff is extremely nice and helpful. The hotel is just not top notch. I probably would stay here again but I would have...
