I dragged my husband to a safari kicking & screaming, so I had to make sure the rest of the trip was well planned. We are hotel and food snobs. I booked to a suite...best decision ever, although, it seems that most of the rooms had good views of the ocean and the pool(s), which I counted three. Our room...

I loved my stay at this hotel, my room was a Cabana suite, with a sea view. I could sit in bed and see the sea. The service at this hotel was great, the staff were friendly and helpful. This hotel is perfectly situated as it is close to the CBD, as well as near the Constantia wine route. There...

I have stayed in bigger grander hotels, but the bay had the comfort factor just right. It's location is good for sightseeing and water sport. The food is excellent and the staff are happy and welcoming.. The porche courtesy cars were a nice extra.thanks to Sean GM.

Dear Jaco d Our hotel is fantastic during winter but you have to come during summer as Camps Bay transforms into a luxury beach resort.

Fantastic location right opposite the beach with a wow factor when you get there. We had a ground floor room opening straight out to the swimming pool and sunloungers.

I guess my expectations exceeded reality given that this is a 5 star hotel. While some of the furniture and décor was quite impressive I never had the feel of a five star hotel.
