It has great location,so peaceful rooms,friendly workers,magnificent pool...But the wifi connection sucks!!!I stayed sitting behind my door to be able to connect for the whole night.How come a 5 stars hotel can do that...No way!!!
Also the cuisine wasnt good. Hope to see more options inside that 5 stars...

I spent 7days and nights here from Valentine's day and everything is to remember from their professional staff both at the front desk and the restaurant to the rooms, the great ocean view and great sea food, loved the lobsters and prawns. It was very windy but I enjoyed my stay and even got a bIrthday cake from the hotel. lol! Oh, it's just 10-15 minutes from the airport which is a plus!

This hotel is really outdated despite the efforts to keep it in a working conditions. The staff is exceptional and deserves a five start for their dedication and the quality of the service provided. The location is good too. As for the restaurants, the menu choice is large enough to accommodate all tastes. Only if the amenities can be renovated. It's still one of the best in the city.

Room Tip: The ocean view is priceless if you can secure a room on that side of the hotel. Enjoy the ocean view...

We still enjoy staying at this hotel which, although is getting older by the year, has a certain dated charm about it. All the staff are extremely polite and friendly. The rooms and bathrooms are in a desperate need of modernising (considering its 5 stars). The breakfast buffet is simply glorious. You can have your eggs/omelettes cooked as ordered in front of you. The swimming pool has to be one of my favourites. The bar staff by the pool are super as are the staff in the restaurant by the pool. The Sunday lunch buffet is one to die for and all the other dishes on offer are fresh and well presented. Since the hotel was taken over from Le Meridian we hoped a lick of paint might be in order but obviously not! A great plus is having the 9 hole golf course available right next door.

Nice hotel. we were there for a business trip. and it was perfect for what we needed to do.

You need to locate your conference hall, or meeting hall prior to the day itself lest you want to spend 10 to 15 minutes Cchoices are wide, and so diverse. Something for everyone.

staff are friendly. very friendly. and always available to help you out...
depending on where you have your diner, lunch, you might need some warm clothes if it is outside (ocean front).

Room Tip: best to make sure you get a room overlooking the ocean, the car park is not interesting at all, unle...

in my opinion musn t be classified as a 5 Star -Hotel, in the rooms it was almost impossible to use wireless, but breakfast was one of the best one i have ever seen in african countries. a bit of older building has the place, but has a good swimming pool on the other hand.

I have been here twice now.

First time, I had a meeting but was not staying here. I loved the food.

Now, I am back and the rooms are old. For a big hotel, it could be better. The bathroom walls in my room are dirty. Haven't been scrubbed in awhile.

Then, my biggest problem was the internet. I could not hold a skype call at all. It was really weak.

Otherwise the conferencing facilities are great, though getting to the conference hall from the hotel is a real maze.

And the view of the ocean is amazing.
