The location and the architecture of the the hotel was lovely. But an immediate trip to the pool was frankly shock/horror because the pool itself was very cloudy and and therefore a health risk. 5 star I think not - wait until SA's health and safety hear about this. In addition no poolside towels, stained lounger cushions, a messy bar area and, I presume, a children's pool with a dead fountain that frankly I wouldn't let my dog swim in.
Once in our room things did get better, a comfortable King Size bed, good balcony and cool aircon that worked well. However what about a loo brush and a shower door that shuts properly?
And also shouldn't the minibar have been stocked which in my case would have generated some much needed income for the hotel.
A 5 star rating should be cherished not abused.
