We visited in October so there was no pool time, but our mission was to get used to the time zone change (From Wisconsin) and tour the area. The city tour bus stop was a two minute walk from the hotel. Those busses have audio guides for everywhere the busses go, including some of the wine country. Our ocean view...

A very clean and happy hotel. All staff could not be any more helpful always saying hello and asking if one needed any help. The only down side is the pillows are too "hard" and the room took past 4pm to clean and give fresh towels but this is minor. A great location buffet breakfast was great and an amazing...

Unfortunately, I booked in this hotel. Actually, all staff and managers are not performing their jobs in a professional manner. I have faced many problems with them and I have hated return to South Africa again.

I was accommodated in the premium room. It had lovely sea views and included one double bed room and one twin bed room each with its own toilet. Great for a family visiting. Don't smoke on the balcony of the room. You will be charged additionally which will spoil your stay at this hotel.

We stayed at the President Hotel and had our 6 year old, non-speaking son with us. The staff were great in accommodating our family's special requirements. This made the stay truly memorable for us and we will have no hesitation in recommending to other families. Special call out goes to Nicholas at the front desk who helped us with parking...

We stayed at President hotel recently with my husband. It was an experience to remember for a long time to come. Thomas gave us a 7 star romantic set up in our room which was facing the sea, what a pleasant surprise! It was out of this world. He booked a table for us at the restaurant downstairs. We felt...
