the staff were very friendly the breakfast was EXCELLENT value for money and a huge choice provided. excellent chefs. the rooms clean and neat and great to have aircon as it was hot. beach right out side. have stayed here before and will again in jan

the staff are very friendly and the rooms lovely and large with great seaviews. it is a bit tired looking but the views and food and staff make up for the excellent venue - you can walk right out onto the beach, you cant get any better. safe clean and great stay.

great value for money. clean and neat. close to restaurants.

The Hotel is kinda old, and it doesn't smell quite good, but the staff is the best. We've been really well treated. The breakfast is very good and included and we got wifi. It's close to the centre and in front of the beach. It was worth it. If you're not searching for a fancy stay, it should be a great place for you to stay.

I can say location is good, but I overall quallity of hotel is not very good. I would say next time I will spend $20 more go to Protea hotel near this hotel.

very good hotel & nice staff. Nice breakfast & very good view of ocean.

Good location, just across from the beach and near to many activities. The rooms are comfortable, except for the shower curtain that does not stop the water with the consequence of having to clean the floor after each shower, but otherwise a good experience. Staff is friendly and the restaurant has good food.

The bedding was in bad condition... Hot water was almost cold, or lukewarm at best. The location of this hotel, the beachfront, has now become an area of safety concern to all whom we meet there as tourists. All the cab / taxi drivers advised us to stay indoors during the evening and night hours.
