We had a fantastic stay could have been better

Posted 04-Jul-2015
Pros: Location and staff
Cons: Training of managers and head chef, he was racist.
Location: Excellent, Excellent!
The hotel is lovely, great location and very friendly staff. Mr Govender, Manger of the Grill Room was a star. He was incredible and very accommodating. he went out of his way to make us feel comfortable. the management need some training on people skills. We had a 10 day stay and was given the second furthest room from the lists. We had to walk back and for for 10 days so this did no make our stay enjoyable. Also every second day our room key would not work , which we only found out after walking forever down the corridor to discover. We had ups and down moments, this could have been a better vacation instead we were exhausted from all the walking back and to the room.

Lovely, hotel, beautiful seaside setting

Posted 18-May-2015
Pros: It has a luxurious feel and has a magnificent setting.
Cons: The food was not my favorite part
Location: beach and boardwalk or promenade are great activities.
WE only stayed two nights but loved the setting and the chance to walk the beach and the wonderful promenade.

No go Oyster Box

Posted 26-Mar-2015 on Hotels
Arrived at hotel, checked in. went to my room just to find it is already occupied by somebody else!!! Called reception and ok we will change your room was not a sufficient explanation, if it was down the road at a one star establishment it would have been a different story.

we spent 5 nights at this pleasant place. Service is "african style" not 100% but the Oyster Box is still worth a visit

Terrible weather, spectacular hotel

As always, the Oyster Box was faultless. One of my favourite hotels, globally! A true gem.

Fantastic hotel

Posted 26-Jul-2014
Great hotel with amazing facilities. Located right on the beach. Has oysters for breakfast. Enough said. Just one thing: not sure about the colonial outfit they get the staff to wear...
