When calling the reception staff informed us(several times) that there was no availability. We looked online and there was availability. We booked a luxury room at a higher price then on the hotels website. The room was nicely decorated, but everything was broken and it was on the outskirts of the property(very remote and felt unsafe). The heater, the bed blanket heater, the tea kettle, the bathroom was also dirty. When we spoke to reception they happily upgraded us to a Superior Room. I enjoyed the decor, but this was definitely not worth the R3,050.00 rate. For an extra R1,000.00 you could stay at the W on South Beach in Miami. We did only pay the luxury room rate, and there have special offered rates per season, but I don't think even with the discount it's worth it. The dining room is a buffet only - that was an unpleasant surprise. The buffet was very poor quality, as well.
