Excellent all round
In terms of service, decor, and attention to detail, this was one of the best places we stayed in South Africa. Every member of staff were switched on and attentive. The hotel was nicely decorated in a modern way. Comfy bed, solar heated pool. Notable was the quality of food for both breakfast and dinner. Amazing views from the restaurant, but well worth eating here for the food alone.

6/10 Good

This pictures aren’t very accurate of the rooms or amenities. The deck outside our room was shared and not private with a direct view of the large dunes that block the ocean view. The bed was super comfy, but the shower didn’t work very well. Also, no real mirror to help dry your hair. Free breakfast was ok, nothing to write home about. The pool doesn’t sit facing the ocean,but faces another home. Finally, they lost our reservation for the last night, which was very disappointing. They offered another place across the street, but that is t what we wanted. The staff was very nice. Overall, it was an ok stay.
