The room was so basic, furniture is out dated. The lift, only one worked so waiting time for long. Cleaning staff did not pay attention to detail when cleaning the room. I expected more from a Sun International.More

The service at the hotel was excellent. The rooms are spacious and beautiful. I loved the location, as it is situated on the beach. The concierge department was very efficient in transport when required.

Great location, wonderful restaurants and swimming pools. Breakfast queue is a bit long at about 09h00 so go early. Room was a bit cramped for a family of 4, but great views. Great easy access to a wonderful beach.

It is not time linked. You get 2 gigs per day as a loyalty card member. Not sure how much without the loyalty card
