From the moment the taxi driver provided cool towels and water then phoned ahead with our drinks order from the airport I knew we would be well looked after.
I was amazed by the quality and design of the bedrooms which have been furnished to evoke a feeling of travel from a different era - where else would you find a hotel with a hatstand? A four poster bed, writing desk and a stack of suitcases holding a mirror all contributed to the atmosphere. Yet the room was modern and the bathroom seemed new.
The staff were so friendly and helpful - in fact everyone I met on the island was like that.
It was low season so the hotel was not fully occupied, consequently, the menu in the main restaurant did not change other than the daily special. Blue Tropic was only open three days of the week. Overall, the quality of the food was good and in Blue Tropic was exceptional.
Transport by dollar bus or taxi is readily available and it is possible to walk to or from Port Elizabeth - a bit hot but it had to be done.
The owner was on site for a few days and made a point of speaking with everyone.
Overall, I left with a very positive feeling about the hotel and would not hesitate to return.More
