Stayed for a few weeks in a good sized apartment in April/May. So, facilites are goo, security are courteous. Locations was ace. Lived that there was a working dock not so far away. Better to watch than some sterile view.
Village and life staff were pretty good on the whole, and being that close to the waterfront was brilliant. Some amazing food in the food barn there. Tours could be organised from the reception, and loved Mr Deliver and am converted to Steers burgers! Not classy, but hey, think it was nearly as good as Nobu at the one and only (ok, over stating it, but it was a good burger).
As to a previous review regarding items in rooms going missing, well that happens everywhere, and SA is still largely the 3rd world. So yes, it shouldn't happen, but you have to be prudent with your valuables anywhere, and Africa is definitely one of them. I locked anything like that in a bag and stashed it to minimise finger trouble. Remember that they earn very little.
Something worth noting after i saw a disgruntled northerner, is that the complex has many different management companies and a mix of rented and owned properties, so if your neighbour is having work done in the day, it's not necessarily anyones fault, and they may not have been informed. so dropping a cog at someone about something they may have no control over is going to ruin your day as well as theirs. Not something i was affected by (some drilling in the day but not at night) but just so you know.
So all in all - great.
