    I like the fact that it employs a lot of local people from the previously disadvantaged background. The staff is friendly and courteous.

    The bar should have no smoking areas. There was no background music in any of the public areas. The cocktail menu is very limited. The minibar remains locked and it's an inconvenience. There should be complimentary water in the room because tap water in pe is unreliable and untrustworthy.

    Friendly atmosphere

    given smokers' floor without asking.Corridor filled with cigarette smoke; was uncomfortable for non smokers like my family.

    When we arrived the hotel did not have our booking. This was however sorted out after phoning Booked.net. After booking in we went to the pool to find people next to us having kfc and generally acting like this was a 3star self catering hotel. We had some cocktails and when we wanted to put the bill on our room tab we where told there was no credit on our room acc. After this we had to be told to settle our bill every time we had anything to eat or drink and we couldn't put it on our room acc. We complained but nothing was done. 5 star hotel?? The hotel was very new but you don't expect this from Sun International. We had a spa treatment that was excellent and after it we decided to try the very nice indoor pool. Again there was a family with kids running around splashing screaming and jumping like they where at some caravan park. Again after having the spa treatment our relaxation was cut short. We had a really good dinner at the Hotel restaurant although my Ostrich steak was not prepared correctly. My wife had the Lamb shank that was very good but we where told no "take aways" after she only had a little of it??? Next morning we my wife wanted to have a bath but the bath water was yellow and there was black pieces of dirt in it. We complained but nothing was done. Just a sorry and shrug of the shoulders. The whole expierience was very disappointing!

    Comfortable, spacious rooms.

    Staff service not consistent and not everyone familiar with their own hotel policy. Also room service not up to par - limited menu, long delays and getting orders wrong.

    Staff serving breakfast were very warm,helpful and friendly? Hotel decor very pleasant and new.

    Poor hygeine at the pool area. No rules regarding swimming caps and bathing prior to entering the pools, as is expected from hotels of this star rating
