“Hear the sea from your room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

This is the fourth time I have been at the Kuramo Waters hotel, and choose it as the size of the room is good, the internet is fast and I love the sound of the waves breaking on the beach right outside my window. Nice pool as well, so bring your costume!

Room Tip: Pick the suites right at the back of the property, you get to hear the sea much better.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013 via mobile

I spent one night at this hotel. Hidden within a maze of winding roads, the hotel is magnificently framed by the sea, complete with crashing waves and cool sea breezes.

Unfortunately nothing else was spectacular, memorable, or unforgettable.

The complementary breakfast was basic, but adequate. My first room was small, but adequate. When I noticed the lock on my back door (leading onto a balcony) was broken, I asked for a different room. I was efficiently moved to a new room...with a broken lock on the back door!

The TV in the room was microscopic, and hidden in a cupboard. Internet service was complementary, but epileptic.

The front desk team was another highlight in a sea if mediocrity and untapped potential. Would I come back? For a romantic getaway, and only because of the sea, maybe. On a business trip, never.

And that's my review of this hotel, a confusing mix of the good and bad, a hotel with multiple personalities.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as the hotel I had booked was overbooked and I could not get a room. The Protea chain is a good chain and I accepted this hotel because it is a Protea Hotel. The hotel is located way off the main road with difficult access to taxis. The facilities are good, the room I got had all the amenities, but it was cramped with hardly any place to move which was a disappointment. The bathroom tub appeared weak and the water in the taps was salty. Internet access is available in the rooms via cable so if you are an iPad user or wireless card user you need to go to the hotel lobby lounge to get wireless access.

Though it was the middle of the week, the hotel was dead with hardly anyone at the bar or restaurants. I had the Nigerian dish of jellof Rice and Chicken on the first night which was excellent but the complementary breakfast on both days could be improved on. I could not bear the empty bar and restaurant for the second night and ate out.

The hotel boasts of a swimming pool and gym. The pool is reasonable but the gym is poor. It had two treadmill machines and the space was so cramped that I decided to give it a pass.

The attitude of the staff can be a lot more friendlier and service also needs improvement. On the whole the hotel has potential with the rooms in separate buildings surrounded by gardens and location near the sea, but I would not choose to go there again unless there is no room anywhere else in though the rooms are clean and neat and the food decent.
