    Overall we enjoyed our stay. The place is calm, clean and beautiful. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was on point, always looked forward to it. 5 mins walk to Ushaka Marine World and South Beach.

    My experience at Waterfront Hotel and Spa is personification of excellent, considerate and caring service. This is a service aimed at the client, and not profits. Its a service that takes into account the situation, needs and being able to read the mood of clients.
