Good and bad points. Would not stay here again.”
The good: Lovely pools, lovely views, pleasant staff, spacious rooms. The bad: Very soft beds, no support, so if you have back issues - not good! Very, very little to eat if you are a vegetarian. We planned to eat meals at the hotel but could NOT and had to drive to town for all meals. The rooms seem a bit rundown, old. The ugly: Leaking showers so water all over the floor after you shower, a bad smell from the drains in our room. We had a non refundable booking otherwise we would have left and gone somewhere else. I expected something equivalent to the Conrad Pezula or something like that but this is not of the same standard at all.

The resort was amazing, spacious rooms with beautiful view of the pool and ocean, The buffet was fantastic and we really enjoyed the food at the restaurants. The spa was so relaxing and the massage was really good felt so fresh after leaving the spa. The staff were so friendly and cheerful, we had a great stay and had a nice relaxing anniversary.

Room ”
My first time experience, the room had a a funny smell like damp.. I was moved to another room which had cockroaches ... 1-Each time I opened a bar fridge there were more than 5 cockroaches... That needs so much attention. 2- Constant incidents where people knocked and just opened the door without being patient enough to wait for response as I was mostly relaxing or sleeping. The price is exhaubitent for the service

Bra hotell”
big rooms, good pool area and fantastic breakfast buffet
The shuttle service in to Ballito, shopping centers was good Both breakfast and dinner buffet was good A nice Wine bar with a nice view over the sea and a good Caesar salad. First we got rooms without balcony , and when we were there it was a bad weather, raining and thunder a lot so we asked for rooms with balconys so that we didn't have to be inside. We got 2 rooms with balconys , but one room had a bad smell, like someone had smoked there before. My son have asthma and couldn't stay there. But we had that feeling that we didn't want to "give more problem" We already got help to have rooms with balconys so we didn't want to go there one more time to ask for one more new room. Me and my husband stayed in that room. And we appreciate that we could sit outside. Our last day we asked for late check out and finally we got one of the rooms up to 2 a clock We appreciate that so much We had very good service to first have rooms with balconys and then could have the late checkout.

We had a great time, service for a 5-star hotel was very poor, thought charging full price for dinner buffet for a child was a bit steep seeing that they eat so little, other than that fantastic

Birthday celebration stay a bit disappointing”
Location, Ocean views, Decor and Design
I booked a stay at the resort to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. Was looking forward to a relaxing Easter weekend with our one year old baby. I had called the resort a week before arriving to confirm that we would require a baby cot in our room. I also confirmed again on the morning before checking in that a cot would be ready for our baby in our room on arrival. When we checked into our room at 4pm it had not been cleaned, the bathroom basin was blocked, there was no cot provided and we had to ask three times for it to be brought to our room. No cot arrived and our baby had to share our bed on the first night. The next morning, we complained at reception and were only then told that no cots were available and the hotel would be purchasing more that day. Highly annoyed that this was not communicated when we had requested the previous day. Staff in general do not appear to be well trained or informed about the resort. We enquired on two occasions about a heated pool on the premises, and hotel staff claimed that none of the pools were heated. Only found out on our last day that there was a heated pool at the Valley of Pools. The waitress at the Bite pool cafe did not know what scrambled eggs were?? Very disappointed that such a beautiful resort in a fantastic location is being let down but such poor service. Staff were generally friendly but not well trained at all. No map was provided of the estate and family dining options were limited, due to a large party having booked the normal buffet restaurant out for the entire weekend. Our long weekend break was generally pleasant but would only consider staying there again once the staff have had a serious service training upgrade.
