The POD in Camps Bay has been the best hotel stay we have ever experienced.
The entire staff is so happy and friendly, nothing is too hard and everything is an absolute pleasure.
The service was also beyond impeccable. We were spoilt with the attentiveness from the staff, who gave us incredible pool side snacks all day long, and offered us popcorn, hot chocolates and an array of sweets for our movie nights (they have HUNDREDS of movies to choose from!). The complimentary mini bar topped off the experience - we couldn't believe the generosity of the hotel!
The entire hotel was impeccably clean. Our room was spotless, yet homely. We felt like we were living at a home away from home. The rooms are big, spacious and noise proof. The views are spectacular from the big balconies! We sat there every night enjoying the sun set. Everything was supplied for: a coffee machine, teas, biscuits, sweets, nuts, wine... If you could think of it, it was there! And whatever you need - the staff have it.
The all inclusive breakfasts were divine! The first morning we chose to enjoy our breakfast in bed, and it was so easy, quick and scrumptious. Whatever your breakfast of choice, it's bound to be on the menu! Oats, waffles, pancakes, scrambled eggs, eggs benedict... and more.
The entire hotel is modern and luxurious. There are photo opportunities GALORE, especially for any social media fanatic (#Me) :-)
We spent both our days relaxing at the pool, which was warmed to a lovely temperature, and enjoyed the views of the ocean right by the doorstep. There was quiet ambiance music, and the staff as always readily available to make you any drink you desire. I am a margarita-queen, and have tasted many different ones over the years, but the POD makes the best margarita, hands down.
It's also FANTASTIC that they have secure underground parking, you feel safe 100% of the time. Also such a great thing to mention is the location, right by the Camps Bay beachfront which means all the best restaurants and bars are just 2 minutes away.
No matter who you are or what you're looking for, the POD is it. I can't WAIT to go again!
This place is absolutely beautiful! A unique design and aesthetic that gets drenched in Cape Town sunlight for the majority of the day which makes for a perfect pool session. Amazing staff that were super friendly and attentive, would highly recommend for those who are looking for a relaxed Cape Town getaway.
The staff is professional and willing to help with a smile. It is a modern boutique with warming decor and heated pools. The breakfast was good. They assisted us with a late check-in request.l will not think twice to come back again.
The service was excellent from time of arrival and friendly staff. The hotel has modern luxury finishes with heated pools, amazing breakfast and the beach is right across the street. Planning to stay longer on my next trip and explore their spa!
When we started looking for a hotel in Capetown, POD Camps Bay Boutique Hotel immediately caught my eye. Along with being fans of modern boutique hotels, we were drawn to this hotel, when we read the online ratings. It was voted Top Luxury hotel in South Africa in 2019 and the Travellers’ Choice Winner on Tripadvisor in 2020.
With sweeping panoramic views of the amazing sunset from the bar and its stunning infinity pool, coupled with easy access to the city centre (just off the main street in Camps Bay), this stylish boutique hotel is perfect and staying there will always be one of my most memorable experiences…
We arrived at the hotel late in the evening. As soon as we walked into this stylish hotel, we were able to watch the sun as it sank over the ocean from the bar and pool terrace. We noticed, others taking a leisurely stroll along the seashore, simply enjoying the moment. My initial thought was: can this be real or am I dreaming? The answer is definitely YES! It’s a stylish hotel in a beautiful location and more reasonably priced than you might expect!
Our guest room was located on the ground floor. It was wonderfully spacious and individually styled, incorporating plenty of natural wood as a design feature – including tree stumps as bedside tables! There was a sumptuous king size bed and comfortable sitting area – which would prove perfect for resting our poor tired feet after a day out exploring!
Honestly, I can not praise the incredibly attentive, and personable staff in POD Camps Bay enough. They always made us feel that nothing we requested was too much trouble. Every time we walked past the reception desk, one of the receptionists was there offering us drinking water (or, in my case, litres of coffee) and asking how our day was going. They would offer assistance with choosing restaurants or shops and had great tips for how best to get around Cape Town and anything else we needed.
When we were in South Africa, we passed some of the other hotels in the area that we had considered and were so happy that we chose POD because it is all you imagine – and more!
