Terribly Disappointed
The eture experience was terrible. The room was it cleaned at check in (17.30). The room smelled ike a sewer, upon inspection the toilet was used and not flushed, housekeeping refused to ckean the bathroom and toilet, stated she'd already done it. Hotel management seemed ambivalent about the entire situation. Will not recommend this accommodation to anyone, at any cost. was cintacted, however, not able to help resolve the issue.

This place has seen better days. You can tell it had a good run, but now it’s very run down and highly decadent. I did not enjoy my stay.

Family holiday in Ballito
Stay was overall good but disappointed that the pool was under renovation when we got there. No msg or warning to let us know that the pool will be out of service especially when you coming with 3 children. Staff were abit confused on the reservation and wanted me to pay for breakfast when it clearly states on my booking that it’s inclusive.
