    Fantastic family holiday destination. The children were kept busy, despite the rain, which was really appreciated. Food was excellent and staff were brilliant. There is a lovely pool area and you can really relax. Beach in walking distance.

    NIce hotel and nice staff! Near Beach and town. Food was great, 1 point in minus due to the poor internet WIFI connection. For someone travelling for business impossible to work from the room, very poor WIFI connection.

    as long as there is no stagnant water in the vicinity , you wont have a problem. South Africa is also entering into autumn and it gets a bit nippy .Mosquitos dont thrive in the cold
