Cela signifie qu’il en coûte entre 5,000 et 10,000 points Marriott Bonvoy pour y effectuer une nuit.

Rates Protea Hazyview

Si vous utilisez vos points pour séjourner 5 nuits dans cet hôtel, vous en obtiendrez une gratuite ! C’est le cas dans la totalité des hôtels Marriott Bonvoy, en savoir plus ici.

Pour obtenir des points Marriott Bonvoy au Canada, le plus simple est via l’une de ces 3 cartes de crédit:

Chacune d’entre elles offre une belle prime de bienvenue et la possibilité d’accumuler des points Marriott Bonvoy sur chacun de vos achats (soit directement pour les cartes Marriott Bonvoy, soit par transfert pour la Carte Cobaltᵐᶜ American Express).

Vous pourriez avoir les deux cartes Marriott Bonvoy et réunir vos points dans votre compte Marriott Bonvoy !

Si vous êtes en couple (ou 2 amis…), vous pourriez chacun souscrire à ces cartes puis réunir vos points dans un même compte !

Vous avez en effet le droit de transférer jusqu’à 100 000 points Marriott Bonvoy d’un compte à l’autre au cours d’une année civile !

Quant à la carte Cobaltᵐᶜ American Express, elle permet de transférer ses points-privilèges en points Marriott Bonvoy au taux de 1:1.2.

Cela signifie que les 5 points-privilèges accumulés par dollar d’achats dans certaines catégories:

  • épiceries
  • restaurants-bars
  • dépanneurs
  • livraison de nourriture à domicile

…vous permettent d’obtenir l’équivalent de 6 points Marriott Bonvoy par dollar d’achats !

C’est bien la carte préférée du travel hacker au Canada.

Location

Nous avons choisi de séjourner au Protea Hotel by Marriott Hazyview car:

  • c’est un bon hôtel d’étape avant de partir à la découverte de la région
  • il ne nous a coûté que 5,000 points (catégorie 1 en basse saison)
  • il disposait de grandes chambres familiales, pratiques avec les enfants

Son adresse: R40 Road, 38km after White River Hazyview, South Africa 1242

Arrival

When we checked in around 4 pm, our rooms were ready. The reception informs us of our benefits with Marriott Bonvoy’s Titanium Elite status: a drink offered at the bar as well as complimentary breakfasts.

No upgrade since we already have the highest room category (which was available with points like all other rooms).

Our arrival – and our entire stay – will be in the rain. Fortunately, it was possible to park in the shelter while unloading luggage.

A friend, for whom he was missing one night to renew his Platinum status (50 nights a year), had offered me an additional room in exchange for checking in for him.

We had no problem doing so: he had informed the hotel that it would be Audrey who would do the check-in for him. A good deal: for only 5,000 points, my friend was able to renew his status, and we were able to benefit from a second room for my mother and her grandchildren!

Head to our rooms – 52 and 53 – sheltered through the pathway.

Our rooms face a beautiful garden.

The bedroom

Our two rooms were identical.

Ideal for families, these rooms offer 2 Queen beds as well as a sofa bed (which we didn’t have the use of thanks to the second room provided by our friend).

The room is dimly bright, and the lighting is a bit austere/cold. But it will do the job for a one-night stand!

Note the very high ceiling!

Always appreciable, especially for families: a fridge.

In the large cupboard, extra blankets and pillows, as well as a safe.

A coffee maker is placed on the desk, as well as a bottle of water.

On the coffee table, a welcome gift and a note to thank us for our loyalty to Marriott Bonvoy.

The bathroom

The bathroom is made up of a shower bath, as well as hygiene products.

Hotel amenities

The bar

On the central level of the hotel is a bar/lounge.

The photos do not do justice to this place because of the rain.

It is a nice place, which has a terrace overlooking the hotel pool.

The terrace

What makes this hotel so charming is its outdoor terrace, accessible from the bar and restaurant and overlooking the pool. In good weather, the view must be beautiful.

To do this hotel justice, here is a photo provided by the hotel’s website, under the sun!

The pool

The hotel has a nice outdoor swimming pool (unheated).

With good weather, this one must be very pleasant, with a soft-sloping entrance for the little ones.

A playground for children

Also pleasant for families, this playground for children, just past the pool.

Breakfast

Breakfast is in the hotel restaurant and in the form of a buffet.

Here are the different dishes:

It is possible to have eggs served as you wish.

Cappucino and Latté will be served at our table.

An excellent breakfast that will allow us to skip lunch! A it was free, thanks to our Titanium status (also complimentary to Platinum members).

Conclusion

L’hôtel Protea Hotel by Marriott Hazyview est excellent, surtout compte tenu du tarif payé: 5,000 points par nuit (en basse saison).

A noter que les employés étaient agréables et serviables, toujours le sourire aux lèvres.

Nous n’avons pas eu la chance de profiter de toutes ses installations du fait de la pluie, mais nous ne doutons pas que vous y passerez un excellent séjour en le choisissant!
