We have just spent our 4th visit at this gem - and the Oyster Box is continuously raising the bar with their consistent service delivery and exceeding expectations! We have stayed in one of their luxurious duplex villa's - complete with private plunge pool.
I love the Hotel and its distinct service-culture as it feels like staying in "a rich Uncle's private beach house"! The staff goes out of their way to make guests feel at home and comfortable - and it soon became clear to us that the staff were briefed on our arrival and our special requests which were anticipated and offered to us even before we requested it!
We always enjoy their many public areas ranging from the Library, the movie theater, the Lighthouse Bar to their fine dining Grill Room Restaurant, Bar and Terrace Restaurant. Four nights are too short to really get to know this hotel and to enjoy everything it has to offer!
Thank you to the Tollman family, Wayne Coetzee and his staff for creating such a special experience - we will continue to come back if you will have the "three of us"...!
