Stayed 3 nights in this fabulous beach side property, accommodation excellent and staff could not be more helpful. Pricey but you get what you pay for. Only reservation was Quality of evening meal did not justify its cost.

What's not to love about this boutique hotel? Unbeatable views with a wonderful service, supreme luxurious comfort, with an attentive but not overpowering staff presence, there to smoothly accommodate all requests.

We stayed here during our honeymoon for a weekend and it was incredible. The staff were so helpful and kind. The view from our bedroom was amazing - just miles of sand and the mountains in the background. It's very peaceful and a proper break from everyday life. Only about an hour from Cape Town, everyone needs to stay in...

Idyllic location right on the beach. Breakfast (delicious) was spent watching the surfers riding the waves. Nothing was too much trouble for the kind, helpful staff. Bedroom was well appointed, very comfortable and light and airy. Thoroughly recommend this hotel.

This is a wonderful, boutique hotel situated adjacent to the beach, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, in a little town not far from Cape Town called Kommentjie. The accommodation is superb, with large suites beautifully furnished and decorated, each with a stunning view. There is also a lovely pool. The waves crash in ceaselessly onto a beach of beautiful white sand....

I took a solo trip to SA from the US for my birthday. I wanted high quality and I got it. Every employee was so helpful. My only complaint is that parking was difficult. But everything else was perfect. The beach, the room, everything. I will be back.
