Treat yourself to the experience, in great style. Our room was clean and fantastic and staff where friendly. Enjoyed our hotel stay, although PE is nothing much to see, it has historical importance and a tour of the city is interesting. We moved on after a short stop over to follow a safari on nearby game reserve

The welcome was wonderful
The room was very spacious, you could get lost on the bathroom. See the attached photo with the view we had.

The staff couldn’t do enough, recommended and booked a fabulous restaurant.

Great place to stay

+ big and clean rooms
+ Excellent breakfast
+ Shops and Restaurant next to the hotel
+ Friendly staff
+ Close to the beach
+ Nice Spa treatment
+ In and outdoor Pool
+ Casino just across the Main entrance

- TV was switch on when we arrived and it was very loud. Had to call maintenance cause the remote didn't Work
- tried to store our valuebals in the safe, didn't work, had to call maintenance again
- hotel located at some sort of themepark so sometimes very crowded and loud

Actually a very good hotel but for me personally a bit too big and loud

Although the most expensive in PE we found this hotel had great rooms, views and facilities. The bars and restaurant were very good, in the evening they had a curry buffet which was excellent.
We stayed for one night en route to the Addo NP.

Room Tip: All have sea views so much the same
