A group of 6 of us stayed several nights at Icon. We booked it because it was cheaper than the sister property, Harbouredge, where we had stayed a month before. Also, we wanted the location as it's very close to everything (short drive to anywhere) and also right at the on-ramp to the highway for quick escapes out to the Wine Region.
We had two rooms in different buildings, which was a little inconvenient, but nothing to complain about. We enjoyed the furnishings of the unit. The beds and furniture were all very comfortable. We had cable tv with lots of channels. Our view was overlooking a vacant lot, but from our floor you could also see a few buildings. We weren't high enough to see over them to see the ocean.
The checkin process was a bit tenuous but nothing to really complain about. This is Africa. Get used to it. Also, since it was August we didn't need air conditioning, so we can't comment on that.
Overall, would recommend to anyone who wants a spacious, modern, apartment and doesn't need to be coddled as you would in a fancy hotel. If you're capable of finding your own breakfast and being a generally competent traveller, you should love this apartment hotel. However, if you want a butler to wait on you at every request, go stay somewhere else.
