Our first visit to this hotel and it was a most enjoyable experience. Genuinely 5 star, the service was faultless and the staff very helpful and friendly with none of the patronising attitude sometimes found in this standard of hotel. There is a good choice of restaurants although we ate mainly in the Jardin Colonial where the buffet style suited...

Really top class in every way. We were really made to feel special by all members of staff, especially Louisa in the restaurant. She treated our baby Patrick as if he was her own and she made us look forward to breakfast! Worth her weight in gold. All staff were very accommodating. Very spacious, fab facilities. It's not cheap, but...

Had a wonderful eight days here last week. True, it doesn't come cheap, but when you see the place, the space, the facilities & most importantly for me the customer service, you should understand that the good things in life cost a premium. Of course the restaurants and bars outside are cheaper, but what overheads do they have? How do...

The ultimate getaway, the Pine Cliffs Resort is magical in many aspects. While mother nature deserves some of the accolades the staff largely deserves most of the praise. But what I found most refreshing is the no holds barred hospitality mentality coupled with the entire nation's beautiful attitude. As a hospitality industry insider I would only have a single comment:...
