This hotel is definitely NOT a 5 star. And needs to up its game significantly to play in the big league. Much as the booking process went very smoothly; Andre was very helpful but as soon as we got there and had paid for 2 nights it became evident that we had booked ourselves into a VERY badly run and mismanaged mess. For a 5 star hotel, there weren’t even welcome drinks on arrival. And it didn’t end there. We walked into a filthy room that had hair on the floors and panty liner strips on floors; FILTHY. And there were no slippers to make us comfortable in this dirty place with stone cold tiles. COVID was used as an excuse yet the spa provided slippers. We called reception and were told that someone would be sent to clean- no apology. The leaking showers and slippery floors are a safety hazard; my daughter and I both fell in the bathroom on our first night! Too tragic to be made up. Both bathrooms do not have towel rails or space to put cosmetic bags. The slippery floor perhaps? Andre the GM was very unperturbed when informed of the uncleanliness and our general disappointment. Instead he seemed surprised that we even raised any issues. Dinner at Gorgios and breakfast were a saving grace in this mess of a place. After our first night and visit to the spa we found the rooms unmade at 1:30pm!!?! When I called reception, yet again the response was as though this is normal. The cleaning lady came and informed us that unless you call reception to request housekeeping your room remains uncleaned! I was gobsmacked! Unbelievable!! Things just kept going downhill. When my baby girl misplaced a shoe and I had to look under the bed, it was disgustingly FILTHY! There was a dirty old sock and crunched papers under the bed, proving that cleaning is not a priority in this joint. When I reported this to Andre, YET AGAIN HE WAS UNBOTHERED and rendered no apology. I DO NOT RECOMMEND this place and WILL NEVER return. There is ZERO management and no leadership. The hotel itself is quite nice but the service is beyond appalling. The place doesn’t quality to be a 5 star, only the less travelled will believe this lie. Andre and his staff are going to run this place to the ground. Perhaps a new broom will sweep clean - excuse the pun.

My interaction with the staff from the beginning starting with Andre has been so accommodating and welcoming. We had the privilege of spending a week at The View as a family in a 2 bedroom family unit. The staff were always friendly and wanting to assist us in anyway to make our stay memorable. I would like to say a big thank you to the beautiful cleaning ladies who lovingly cleant our room everyday 💖. Thank you to the amazing breakfast team whom we looked forward to seeing every morning to start our day off with. The attentive waitress Latoya she took such good care of my family every time and always made time to find out how we were and put a smile on our faces...the chef Nombuso for the mouth watering flavours we got accustomed to we thank you...the young gentleman who runs the breakfast team Phumelele keep up the strength...lastly Andre thank you for arranging this stay...you are all gems at The View. Take care of each other and keep spreading the joy 🧚‍♀️
