A Beatiful Hotel

Posted Apr 9, 2014
This hotel was a great find. A five star resort. Great food and beautiful facilities. The room was outstanding. The service level was some of the best we have had in the world. With the dollar exchange rate, we could not believe the favorable prices (3 beers and 3 shots of tequilla=$16 US dollars!). Opportunites: Limited exercise machines in the fitness center. No real beach opportunity.

Most obliging staff. Excellent food

Posted Feb 3, 2014
Pros: Spacious and all the facilities you would expect of a first class hotel. Good security.
Location: Close to King Shaka Airport but quite. Medical facilities and great choice of shopping nearby. Golf and other activities.
All the facilities for a joyful holiday, nothing is too much trouble to the staff.

Great location great sea views

Posted Sep 29, 2013
Hotel had great views and facilities. Staff extremely helpful. Really enjoyed our staff with one complaint.... the Times in two weeks we couldn't get into one of the hotel eateries with we wanted to as they were booked out for private function, which is not an issue but would have been nice to have been told with advanced notice so we could at least plan our options. Overall well with a stay.
