Reviewed 23 January 2014 via mobile

Booked one night but then extended another 3 nights to make it my base. Staff helpful, couteous and professional at all time. Room with distant ocean view were spacious and superbly furnished. Bathroom was sumptious with great quality fixtures and fitting. Loved opening bathroom shutters and luxuriating in the supersized bath. Shower was also spatious. Whilst didn't mind the step that ran across the room, those with disabilities/elderly should choose a room overlooking the forest. Also lovely room but without large bath and opening between bedroom and batroom. No need to eat out as there is a great restaurant on site. Didn't use the tiny spa but it looked good for massage at the end of the day. Onsite free parking and wifi were including in what i considered to be good room rates. I look forward to my next visit.

Nothing is too much for the management of this boutique hotel. The Fiamma grill restaurant within makes the best pizzas.
Liked the cocktails around the pool at sundowners as well.
Can definitely recommend a stay here.

This Hotel was wonderful, Staff, Food , all very well presented. But the Monumental moment was that we were In a wonderful Hotel as Nelson Mandela passed away, this made our stay complete. In years to come when people ask where were you when Nelson Mandela passed away we can say we were there, in the Rainbow Country.

What a lovely hotel! I stayed on my own and felt very welcome and well looked after. The hotel is but a short walk from the beach. Facilities are great, rooms are clean and spacious. I made use of the spa and had a very relaxing (and much needed) massage.

What stands out is the staff's friendliness and helpfulness. It creates an atmosphere of tranquility and relaxation knowing your needs are catered for.

This is a good boutique hotel located some way back from the beach with barely any seaview. A short walk of about 30m places you on the beach. The rooms are quite good - we found the shower to have insufficient gradient to the drain so some pooling occurs. The towels were white but very tired looking so tended to be somewhat just off-white, but usable. The experience at this hotel is hugely amplified by the restaurant, which produces truly excellent food; you shall find the review under the name Fiamma Grill...

We had a massage at the spa which was not much to write about as we have experienced significantly better massage techniques so we would rate this as average.

Room Tip: Whilst these are premium priced, a sea facing room will at least give you some glimpse of the ocean...

The Management and staff of this exceptional hotel can only be described as superb. The room wes superb with one of the best beds I have ever used. The bathroom was modern and immaculate. All in all, this hotel could hold its own with any Boutique Hotel, anywhere in the world.
