We enjoyed our stay at the Elangeni because of the view to the beach. It made the stay so much more relaxed. Although we were early and couldn't check in immediately, the staff made us welcome and when we did eventually check in we were advised we were being upgraded. Unfortunately, because we didn't know what sort of room we were getting in the first place the upgrade seemed a bit disappointing as our room was just a typical standard hotel room. The rooms are quite small but they were clean and comfortable. The restaurant is superb and we enjoyed 2 buffet dinner meals plus breakfast that we couldn't fault. The porter was friendly and very helpful. Our only real complaint would be the lifts - they take forever and we were only going to the 5th floor. It is a great location though and if and when we return we would consider staying again.
