    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.

    If you are a vegetarian then u must not stay or should not take the breakfast as part of the room. This is because there is no vegetarian option in breakfast. Every time i visit i struggle. Strange being in Durban where there are lot of Indians they should have plenty of vegetarian options in the breakfast.

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.

    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.
