Everything was great. Really enjoyed staying at The Capital Pearls. R40 for an Appletiser at the hotel restaurant felt a bit exorbitant, but other than that, everything was perfect.

Delayed Check-In”
Arrived at the reception at 2pm (check-in time) and after completing the check-in procedure I was told that my apartment is not ready yet and I must wait in reception. I had to go and ask at reception every half an hour since 2pm to enquire whether the apartment is ready or not. Eventually at 15h50 (almost 2 HOURS later) we were informed that the apartment is now ready. This was extremely inconvenient considering we have travelled 6 hours by road to get there.

Great break away”
A beautifully situated hotel right on the beach. Rooms are decorated with care. Close to some great restaurants which are all within walking distance. We had two small service problems , one was waiting for pool towels and the other housekeeping took more than 2hours to deliver tea bags to our room. The staff were friendly and the views are beautiful.

We loved the location of Capital Pearls. Tshidi and Muhammed on reception were very helpful in getting us in to one of our rooms quickly. As we had an event to attend that afternoon. The apartments are spacious, well appointed, very clean, with good in room wifi, cable tv and great air con. I’d like to make a special mention of Longe (Housekeeping), Ben (Porter) and Francois for always being ready to assist us. You all made it easy for us to enjoy staying at Capital Pearls, we can see how hard you work and that you show great care for all of your guests!

View from the top”
This property comprises owned apartments and those available for hotel guests. The view is spectacular. The apartments have everything except a dish washer. The lifts are slow and complicated - getting in and out of the building can be a challenge. There are no stairs available to use instead of the lifts. Not much seating in the lounge if the weather is not good. The pool is very good. There are many beds by the pool but at busy times, there are not enough.

Good Accomodation ”
The rooms were nice clean and spacious. The main Reception staff, however i felt dissapionted me. When I needed assitance with the kids activity Room the lady at Reception asked me to go in the direction o where there was no activity area or play area. i then spoke to the guy at Reception requesting the same, and he said that there was no play area, and ignored me after, and called a Manager to assist me, without me asking for one, and then the Duty Manager Francois, who was pleasant, appologised and showed me the way. They shoud actually be a sign on the door saying Kids Play area, as we guest dont know that their Saphire Room is a play area. Microwave was not working in my room, as well.

Luxury dwelling with some rough edges still to be refined.”
The building is brand spanking new with the smell of paint still in the air and a construction site adjacent where the newest section of the complex is being erected. The equipment in the rooms is more than adequate, functional but not yet "gemütlich". Carpets on the floor and pictures on the walls would give the rooms a less clinical feel. Why is the enormous TV located above the writing desk in the corner? Why is there no desk lamp? Eager, friendly and willing young staff are ready with advice, for example, on which lifts to use to find one's way out of the building. The location of the Capital Pearls is perfect for all who want to be close to the ocean in Umhlanga and yet also in the middle of the action for entertainment of an evening. Parking is free, covered and most convenient on the 4th floor, reception on the 5th, exit to the street on the 3rd. Now that we've orientated ourselves, we'd like to return.

Non stop workmen drilling in the apartment next door. Felt like our headboard was going to fall. ”
I have a video of the noise. Can I send it to you. We complained, response was sorry that is a private apartment next door having renovations done. This stay was a nightmare, we had no choice but to get up and leave apartment each day. Staff or management did not come back to me to this day. I would like to submit a video so you can see why I should get a refund

I was a bit disappointed with the view from our room. I booked a Superior studio for the sole reason of having a sea view but when I got to the hotel, the reception told me that we had a 2 bedroom apartment with a partial sea view. I appreciate the upgrade but did not get what I requested. Further to that I had requested a room on the higher floors when I did my booking but got a room on the 6th floor which is actually the 2nd floor of the hotel. The facilities at the hotel are great and so is the location just disappointed with the room.

Electrical wires and lifts”
TV remote was not working. Required two calls to rectify. Most the electrical plugs and adapters were loose fitting and an eyesore. Most people using the building for the first time found the lift lights confusing as no indication is given inside or out about the level the lifts are. Only one door key issued and if one goes onto the incorrect floor in error one is stranded until somebody happens to appear on the same floor
