They organized almond milk for the room which was very much appreciated. Most stunning beaches close by. The manager himself takes care and is a warm hearted person. He started a program which brings this lovely place in a more sustainable future: local, organic, seasonal products which are produced by locals. They already avoid plastic bottles.

5.4 Okay
Pros: Pretty decor, nice location
Cons: I booked the kingfisher suite with a “private” plunge pool for my honeymoon trip. Unfortunately the private pool was on top of the common deck where everyone used to sit and was also the main passageway to the building. So i paid for a beautiful room with a beautiful view that i could never see. I had to keep my curtains drawn throughout the stay. So basically I paid a lot of money to get a beautiful room with a pool and view that i could practically never use. Complete turn off.

3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The location was good
Cons: The service was very poor. 1. There were many insects floating in the pool. The water looked really dirty. I have a picture of it. Could not use the pool as a result. This is a health hazard particularly in current environment. The photos of the pool are attached. 2. Could not make toasts at breakfast as no electricity. 3. Could not make tea in the morning or evening as no electricity. Even a matchstick or lighter was not provided even though the cooker was a gas cooker so could have worked without electricity. 4. No WiFi in the room or the restaurant. 5. Phones in the room did not work half the time. 6. Had Pizza in the restaurant which was half cooked. Had to send it back twice after which they gave a decently cooked pizza. There was very slow response to these complaints and only this morning at nine o clock did they offer an extra free night. But by then we had already booked our next accommodations via booking.com. I am really disappointed by the poor service provided by this accommodation and would like a compensation from booking.com. The manager of the hotel said he would write back to us but so far have not heard from him. We use booking.com regularly and even on this trip have given you a lot of business so we expect you to take us seriously and compensate for this very bad experience.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: very good accommodation facilities. It was home from home, very spacious 2 bedroomed apartments with kitchen, dining area and lounge. Braai/Barbecue facilities on the patio overlooking a lake. Well decorated hotel throughout. very friendly staff. Breakfast for kings.
7.0 Good
Pros: The suite was huge with a separate bedroom. The a/c worked great. There were blackout curtains. The breakfast buffet was good with eggs made to order. It was a 5 minute drive to the beach. And a 5 minute drive in the other direction to get to town.
Cons: There was no WiFi in the room. There was a huge kitchen but no dishes or pots and pans to cook with.
7.0 Good
Cons: At the time of departure, the employee was confused about charging my reservation. Because I already paid everything in Brazil, but she wanted to charge more than one day. In the end she realized she was making a mistake and apologized.
10.0 Excellent

9.2 Excellent
Pros: The apartment itself is very modern and stylish and located in a serene quiet area. The beds were comfortable and apartment spacious enough not to feel like you are in someone else's space
Cons: We had the 2 bedroom apartments. The apartment seemed as if it was a self catered unit, as it had a fridge, stove and oven, wash basin and dishwasher, crockery and cutlery, etc however we were confused as to whether we could use it or not. The housekeeper pointed out that we could when he welcomed us to the apartment but we were on another hand believed to not be using this. This created confusion.

6.0 Good
Pros: The hotel was very nice, modern and clean and the staff were very friendly.
Cons: What was inexplicable was the toilet being effectively open plan to the room. There is a big opening in the wall between the bathroom and the bedroom - presumably so that you can see out the window if you're in the bath. There were louvre shutters to close across this opening but, without putting too fine a point on it, they don't stop toilet noises or odours. The designer has been very creative with most of the hotel but the 'open plan toilet' is a stupid idea and I could not recommend staying here until they change that.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, quirky and unique property. Good breakfast. Friendly staff.
Cons: On one night we had dinner in hotel restaurant and service was very slow albeit they tried hard. Other clients were looking bemused by the slowness also - not enough staff on duty?
6.0 Good
Pros: The setting was amazing
Cons: I didn’t feel that I had value for money for the room rate. I thought the breakfast was quite disappointing and poor in comparison to other places I’ve been in while on holiday
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great location
Cons: Nothing
6.0 Good
Pros: Plenty of parking. Easy to walk to a good fun tapas bar over the road. Some interesting power station equipment (generators, boilers etc) in the main areas of the hotel.
Cons: I would put this more in 3 star bracket rather than 5 star. No toaster available at breakfast so you had to order toast and then just had 2 jam portions and some butter (OK for 3 star but not 5). The room was rather small with odd historical electrical components attached to walls and cupboard doors with no function other than to use valuable space and prevent cupboard doors from fully opening! In my opinion not worth the money
1.0 Poor
Pros: nothing
Cons: staff very unfriendly and some one get in my room and stole my Montblanc pen (worth over 1000 use) i went to claim it to the reception, no body care or even say sorry. This is totally un acceptable. i m suggesting to avoid this hotel
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was perfect for the purpose of my stay. The room was modern, with a great bathroom, the bed was very comfortable. I had a wonderful sleep. It was lovely to be near to the lagoons and watch the coming and going of local boats. Very relaxing. The staff were friendly and very helpful. I loved the proximity of the Sirocco Restaurant that was located in the Thesen Island precinct and went their either for lunch or dinner for my two day stay. Great seafood.
Cons: Nothing

5.4 Okay
Pros: Not much.
Cons: For the price, we were totally underwhelmed. It felt the room was a little box amongst multiple boxes, Our room looked over a parking lot, reception staff spent more time telling us what the hotel did NOT provide. The room was an awkward shape, the bathroom at the front and you let yourself in, with a large window for passing by visitors to look in unless you shut the curtains, leaving the room dark without natural light. Odd water bottle in the fridge - an old wine bottle with plastic wrap over the top.Food was ok, cold, hard toast for breakfast. Quiche was good. All in all it left us with an experience that we were paying for a name and not good service. We won’t be coming back.
