We had a lovely breakaway to celebrate our anniversary. The hotel staff made us feel special and welcome and we received wonderful service. The staff are very well trained and friendly the hotel has a fantastic room service menu and dining options. We especially enjoyed the food from the Azure menu. Thank you for making our stay romantic and special. Our room was a sea facing one and we even saw some whales from our balcony during sun-downers which was a wonderful moment for us. I can highly recommend the hotel to anyone who wants to experience South African hospitality at its finest. Read less

Prince and Angus made us feel so welcome. Angus showed off his skills at making mocktails and my daughter learnt a few tricks. Prince organised special surprises for her birthday and went way beyond the call of duty to make her feel special. Thank you so much guys, we will definitely be back!!

We had a lovely sea facing room and enjoyed the view with sunset canapés. The massages we enjoyed before this made us feel very relaxed. The hotel went thru a lot of effort to make the in room dining supper option of a high standard considering we in level 4. We really enjoyed the breakfast brought to our room with the fabulous view

The service throughout The 12 Apostles was great - one of the best I have encountered. The 12 Apostles is immaculate with beautiful interiors. Juanitta at the Azure Restaurant has lovely customer service, and is thoughtful and very kind to guests. Thanks for a lovely whole experience. Will definitely be back. Read less
