I was a little hesitant to book because there were so few google reviews compared to other hotels but we’re so glad we did.
The staff is amazing. They’re so friendly and helpful. They all really went above and beyond to accommodate any needs and I really appreciated that. They had set up a nice honeymoon surprise for us, and included a really nice Valentine’s Day breakfast for all the guests. Those details make for a wonderful experience.
The location is great. You can tell there are many updates that have been done improve the area. It’s in a cute and colorful neighborhood- lots of really nice restaurants within walking distance. We didn’t want to stay right in the Pietermaai downtown area since it would be noisier at night. I anticipated a much future walk to get places but that was not the case.
In additional, the hotel itself is very nice. Beds were so comfortable (and actual king beds- not two twins pushed together). Bathroom was beautiful. The pool area was amazing! I did not expect it to be that large from the pictures I saw online.
Lastly, the breakfast at Maria’s is included every day and was always so good. It is a very short walk from the hotel but I liked the experience of dining at an actual restaurant vs the typical continental breakfast most hotels offer.
The only trouble was finding it, as it didn’t show up on maps.me (I think since they’re newer?) it was a bit difficult to find at first. We wouldn’t have figured out where to park without assistance
