We stayed here for 4 nights in April around Easter weekend. We had two rooms as we were 4 adults and 4 children. We could not fault this hotel one bit. The staff were extremely friendly, from reception, to housekeeping to restaurant to kids club. The shuttle bus drivers were extremely helpful and friendly, always smiling a they looked proud to work for Southern Sun. in fact all the staff did. The breakfast was amazing with a lot of variety. Good amount of fruit. The omelette station was a good touch and the kids loved the pancake bar. The rooms were spacious enough for 4 people. We didnt stay in the room long, we literally just showered and slept there as we were out sightseeing each day. The hair dryer in the room is by far the best hotel Hair dryer i have ever used and ive stayed in 5* resorts before. The pool area looked small but was well maintained. We didnt use it but had a sneak peak. The hotel had a holiday club for the kiddies over the easter break. What a pleasure to drop your kiddies off to paint and play (they were also fed of they got hungry) whilst we did the packing! Would we recommend this hotel - definitely Would we stay here again - without a doubt Thank you Southern Sun for a wonderful experience Read less

Advise the house keeping staff to keep their voices low, inorder to accommodate guests that want to sleep longer hours. I wanted to have dinner at the hotel but I was disappointed to find alacate, yet I wanted a buffet.
