An outstanding modern boutique hotel in a glorious location. Everything was just perfect. Wonderful room. Great breakfast (and cocktails!) on deck looking out to ocean. Friendly and helpful staff - special mention for Rhoda and Ted! We stayed for five nights and would gladly have stayed longer. There's a good selection of restaurants within walking distance.

Wonderful spacious and very modern room with specular picture window of the ocean. Direct access to beach for walking. Very helpful staff. Within a few minutes walk of a selection of restaurants. Delightful breakfast area just above the lovely beach.

Rhoda and the staff of "On the Beach" could not have been more accommodating and friendly. A week of being pampered at one of the more luxurious locations in South Africa. The breakfasts on the deck were a magnificent way to start a day, with long walks on the beach but a few steps away! We will definitely be back...

Everything is marvellous there: The rooms overlooking the ocean, the bathroom with stylish interior, the lobby and the terrace, where the breakfast is served by most friendly staff. A short staircase brings you directly to the sandy beach, where you can walk many miles (if you want...). We are dreaming to return sometimes in the future.

We had a suite on first floor and found it both familiar and stylish. The breakfast outside with view on the ocean was fabulous including a first class service. What could be better is to have an additional door towards the living room, to keep the noise out of the suite. That's why we only give a very good for...

Situated right on the beach, the views are spectacular in every direction. Stunning breakfast combination of buffet (pastries, cereals, breads, preserves etc) and a la carte from the kitchen. The fresh croissants are to die for and the crunchy hashbrowns are a nice touch on the English breakfast. Indulge in an amazing hot chocolate if it's a cooler day.

We arrived on Christmas and met with Joseph who was very helpful throughout the stay. He assisted with all our needs and ensured that we were comfortable at all times. There are barbecue facilities and they serve a filling breakfast every morning. A few minutes walk away from the beach Worth every penny!!!! Will definitely recommend
