Our overnight stay here was truly special, especially since we received a complementary upgrade to a luxury suite. The room was exceptional, lovely ocean view and friendly staff. Will definitely come back.

Mohammed, za1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
We had a very comfortable night in a duplex room but the air conditioning downstairs did not cool, only blew air, and there were only two feather pillows when we would have liked 4 or 6. We were disappointed not to have dinner at Kiplings which was closed on Friday night but had a great meal at Ginger next door to the hotel.
