Just 15 min from the CBD; great location overlooking table mountain and robben island; quiet beaches and just awesome. The rooms are good and the cabanas are great. We loved it!!! Very good for people doing self drives; safe parking and lots of restaurants near by.

Paid premium price over New Year period for dated accommodation - price did not match the quality - The decor was classic 1990s apricot. The furniture and fittings were chipped, damaged, uncomfortable, missing or broken. There was no air conditioning and the cabana was stuffy. The fan in the bedroom sparked when turned on and off. The bedroom fans were...

As a resident of cape Town it would be nice to have the "holiday" experience but sadly most of the hotel bars and pools are exclusively for paying guest. Would have enjoyed a pool side cocktail to cut through the summer heat.

This is regarding poor service at your Hotel at Bakkhali. Inspite of full payment in advance well before, we are provided with poor quality rooms on 23.12.16. The rooms were suffocating and without any Geysers in the rooms. We booked 5 rooms and three of them were AC rooms in 1st floor which were really pathetic. Even the AC units...

From the check-in to the check out the service is effortless. The sea facing view from the hotel rooms (huge by hotel standards) are awesome with views of Table mountain and Robben Island. The rooms also boast a fully catered kitchen, large living areas, en-suite bathrooms and a large bedroom.The beach is 'an extension' of the hotel. The in-house restaurant...

Beautifully appointed hotel with stunning views to Table mountain across the bay. We took one of the appartments which suited us travelling as a family of seven. Clean modern bathroom well stocked with toileteries and fluffy white towels which were useful given the location adjacent to the beach. Only a two minute stroll onto the powdery white sand and dunes...
