Very beautiful and design hotel right on the beach. Very nice rooms with all comfort, special mention to the very large bed and the spacious bathroom with both bath and shower. Amazing view from the balcony overlooking the ocean. Breakfast was very good, with lots of choice.

The staff were all very professional and attentive. The food and wine was of a good quality (with the exception of the juice and coffee!!). All very good/excellent but slightly over-priced. We would recommend this to our friends and family

This beach took us by surprise...in fact the breathtaking views of this small Wilderness town is simply worth the long drive all the way from the Western Cape to the Eastern Cape. The scenic garden route is a great way to appreciate the beauty that is South Africa 🇿🇦 the place I proudly call HOME ❤️

My wife and I had a most enjoyable stay in this beautifully designed hotel. I suspect, however, that we would not have enjoyed it nearly so much if we had not booked a sea facing first floor room. Entirely acceptable in every particular.

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.
