We had great stay with my friends. The only problem is the noise of cars in the rooms facing the front of the apartment. The apartment location is closer to central of Cape Town and most attractions in Cape Town and it was easily excessible by Uber.

The nicest accommodation I've ever stayed in South Africa! I've visited here a number of times but I have never been more impressed by the quality of the apartments and the incredible view than I have at the Murex. My friends and I rented out all three apartments for one month and all three exceeded our expectations. Staff are incredible and safety is not an issue at all here. The rooftop pool and terrace was definitely a highlight for my group as well! Can't recommend it enough!

Nice place, clean , tidy and new We have stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment (apartment #3) it was very nice with a storage to store our luggage and it had all appliances new and working properly. Staff very cooperative and helpful and Kyle did a wonderful job to insure we enjoy our stay (Richard and Carla) as well. Beautiful view Parking available and its ok by using the car lift but it does take a little effort and time Thank you Murex team

These apartments are absolutely lovely. A large group of 15 stayed here from mid-November to mid-December, occupying all three floors. Each floor's accommodations are new/spacious and have beautiful views of the ocean from each of the balconies and the gorgeous rooftop - with a small pool! The guards were super friendly, very attentive/helpful, and Carla was great at promptly addressing any concerns/issues we had. The kitchen space is perfect for cooking great meals. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a comfortable and pristine stay.

The place is absolutely amazing from the time you arrive you feel pure luxury from the interior finishings to the spectacular sea view you feel like royalty. The host is very welcoming and the place is very well located close to most facilities. We had planned to stay for two nights but extended for another two nights and could have stayed longer if time allowed. Thank you for the 5 Star experience Murex Team!

The Murex is a "must-stay" when visiting Cape Town. Everything is so accessible from the property in terms of it's location. The building is completely modern with views second to none. If roof top pool party barbeques is your thing, this is the place for you. My wife and I spent our 5th year anniversary there, totally amazing!!!!

From the day we booked until the day we left the Murex, Carla was always very helpful! We travelled with kids (and a 6month old baby). We were so surprised when we arrived to see that there is a baby chair, baby utencils, baby toiletries and even a baby bath that was put in our apartment. This made travelling with our baby so much more convenient and definitely a gesture that would not be forgotten! We always felt at home! This place is beautiful and very modern, also very close to almost everything you would want to see while visiting Cape Town and has very secure parking. Every room has a tv with Netflix, making it easy to entertain the kids when we are at home. The rooftop pool/bbq area is amazing, wish we could have spent more time there! All the staff are amazing, the lady who cleaned the apartment, the security guards and Carla all went out of their way to make this a trip to remember, even filling up the fridges before our arrival with everything we needed, will DEFINITELY come to the Murex again!

Perfect in every way. Clean, spacious, well designed and great view. Will definitely be back. Great attention to detail by Carla and nothing was too much trouble. Wine on arrival as well as bulging and a big welcome. Not cheap, but good value.
