                Service around pool is non existent ”
                Two days in a row we had to go to the bar for service and were generally ignored. In addition on the first day after trying to get the bill we were given somebody else’s bill and on the second day after having to got other bar for service we were brought fish and chips when we ordered a salad which was supposed to be Greek but was just a salad with Lettie tomato and onions. On the first day I complained to the desk, the gentleman was going to speak to the food and beverage manager, not sure if this happened? There are only two people on duty and no management. When my wife wanted to swop a wet towel for a dry towel the lady wanted a token. We did not have a token because we had originally exchanged it for the wet towel we were trying to swop. Staff train8ng seems to be a problem.

                Usually got juice on arrival - no more. Lady at reception not very friendly. Booked a room with a view, didn't get one, only after complaining and it took some time for them to find us one. The two gentleman who sorted it out was however very helpful and we got a free bottle bubble for our wedding anniversary. Dinner and room service are not served at the hotel and we was not informed in advance by either the booking agent and the lady at reception. Breakfast buffet was quite limited for the amount paid @ R210 per person.
