La Splendida is a fun beach bar and restaurant close to Mouille Point. Lively with a real buzz. Service an be a little sluggish but at other times is fast. Good value offers for dinner on Tuesdays. We had lamb burgers some night but seafood was also good.

When it comes to location and views, you can't beat La Splendida. I had a sea-facing room and the views of Mouille Point and Robben Island were fantastic. If you're looking for a base in the city, then this is a great option - easy access to public transport, Uber, the Red Bus tours (stop opposite hotel), etc. and an...

We stayed at La Splendida for two weeks in February to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. It is in a lovely location opposite the ocean (with a view of Robben Island and the odd pod of dolphins too) and an easy walk to the V & A Waterfront. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable...

The hotel is located on the sea front, opposite the sea promenade, walking distance to the V&A waterfront and close ride to Clifton Beaches. Downstars there is a caffe and a restaurant, with another great restaurant just around the conner. The hotel offers free bikes and its great to spend half a day riding along the promenade. Smal, clean and...

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel and used it as a base for 10 days while visiting Cape Town. The rooms are basic but clean and very spacious. We had two rooms on the side on the 3rd floor and so had great views of the sea and the golf course and mountains behind. It was ideally located...

La Splendida is situated within walking distance from Waterfront . It is a pity that the reception area is so noisy and the receptionist who served us did not bother to look up from her phone or the computer whilst checking us in. We could also. It gave an extra key to the room/ they only issue you with one...

We had a nice welcome from Chris the owner, who also helped me with the bags which was useful given the fact we were travelling with twin 1 year olds.

We stayed at La Splendida for 4 nights in January 2017. The hotel has a very relaxed atmosphere and many of the guests used the downstairs lobby and restaurant to hang out and socialize. The restaurant is indoor/outdoor and was always busy. The room was large and had limited views of the water. It wasn't exactly luxurious but it was...

Having spent a week in Cape Town and at La Splendida in particular it is safe to say we had a great experience overall. What i really did enjoy about this establishment was the festive nightlife at the restaurant downstairs. Advertising wifi in the hotel is not a good idea as it will leave guests disappointed - especially international guests...

This hotel is perfectly located for either a beach holiday or an ideal base from which to explore Cape Town (or both). Extremely competitive rates for the area. Our room was extra large (some 35sqm) and well equipped, with Side sea views, and a very spacious toilet/shower area. The room had a bar fridge and tea/coffee facilities which was handy....
