Food and beverage was very over priced, we ate at the hotel and had a few drinks on the first day of our stay and after seeing the bill we didn't eat again at the hotel, it was a lot cheaper to go eat at a restaurant every lunch and dinner. The drinks were priced at around R10 more per drink and a pizza for instance was around R60 more than a pizza of the same quality at any of the bars, restaurants that were 5 min walk from the hotel. As a guest i would gladly pay R10/R20 more per meal for the convenience but just found prices were comparatively way too high and you are losing tons of money, there were 2 or 3 people eating lunch / dinner on any day which is a petty. Other than that our stay was very nice and enjoyable, the hotel is very nice and staff are great. ps: the hallways smell of cat pee.

As Timeshare owner, who does not visit the hotel regularly, we always have a nice experience, considerate staff and value for money. For us, the hotel is conveniently situated central from most of the places worth visiting in the area, including Durban. The beach area, which is well maintained, is within close walking distance.

Room was comfortable and clean; meals were basic but good; staff were friendly and very accommodating to my needs. Resort is a short walk from the beach. Only negative is that the pool needs renovating.

Lovely setting with awesome views, wonderfully friendly staff. Loved the pool bar. Delicious food and lovely breakfast, never seen a pancake maker at a buffet but what I great idea. An all round great stay! Some guests were quite rowdy but that would be my only complaint.

Very happy with everything at the hotel. Friendly staff, good food and an amazing view. The only issue I had was that I was too tall for the shower head. Besides that, an excellent place to stay if you visiting the area.
