The Cabanas Lakeview

Amazing, friendly staff that go out of their way, was a few issues but staff and management properly trained to deal with issues. Breakfast was exceptional with a wide range of dietary requirements. Would rather stay at Cabanas than the Maslow at Time Square, better services and they really look after their guest.

The Cabanas

Johannesburg, South Africa

The rooms seem to quite a walk from the reception, but it is doable. This is an ideal location for people with families. The breakfast (which is included) was good with a wide variety of options. The rooms were clean, however, I do feel that they felt a little squashed, but you are not there to stay in your rooms.
