Dolphin Beach Hotel, Cape Town
Ransacked on our first day by hotel staff.
Well The location is great. For the room itself there were a few things broken, like the shower door, the pullout couch and there was no WiFi even though I was given 4 usernames and passwords to connect with. I did report this the next day, and was told they will took care of it. After a day out on the beach we returned to our unit only to find out that we were ransacked. I reported it to the front desk, who grinned and found my report amusing (as if this is suppose to be a normal thing). We took a huge lose and there was no attempted from management to even try to compensate for our lose. This was the first time in my live that I was robbed by hotel personnel (since our room was locked and the only people with access was hotel staff). I will definitely not stay there again.

Amazing views and staff
The most amazing view and friendly staff. If the unit had aircon, I would vote it one of my top 5 stays in the world. Right on the beach. I asked for a crib and arrived to find a very good crib, high chair and baby bath. Every breakfast was a delight, simply because of the staff
