I absolutely love South Beach Camps Bay. Not only is the property immaculate, but it's beyond sexy and full of original art in a fantastic location with two swimming pools and direct sunset views. It's far enough off the main strip to not be noisy in summer, but close enough to walk to all the action. The property is a...

I couldn't be happier having chose South Beach as the first stay in Cape Town. The hotel was fantastic and helpful in every way. Great location with about a 5-10 minute walk to all the bars and restaurants. Staff was helpful in offering suggestions. Rooms were very modern with power adapters for all plugs (very under rated but a great...

I rarely give 5 star reviews, but this place is truly fantastic. Huge, clean room and bathroom, amazing shower, incredible balcony/view, amenities, breakfast (fresh bread delivered daily), sitting area, great TV -- basically everything you'd ever want in a hotel room. Perhaps not enough (free) bikes to take out, no real common areas (except the pool, which is great), but...

The staff and service are truly unparalleled. We were made to feel like VIP's. Also, the finishes, design and attention to detail make the experience all the more pleasurable. Oh and probably the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on! I highly recommend you try south beach for your Cape Town stay.

Wonderful time at South Beach! The best location in Cape Town and the most spectacular setting! 33 degrees end of April! Eating sushi and G&Ts! Summer seems to never be ending. It's a must see if you come to Cape Town!

The location is ideal - 200m away from Camps Bay’s main promenade in a quite and peaceful little street and it’s next to the Theatre on the Bay which offers amazing shows all year long! All the details made a huge difference: books and bicycles are at your disposal, some bread and croissants are quietly placed in front of your...

What a wonderful, incredible place this is! Our room was splendid - luxurious, spacious, unbelievably comfortable, beautifully decorated with great features (loved the proteas and the artwork!!). We really appreciated the self-catering concept (it's so convenient to breakfast at one's own balcony, using items from the fully stocked fridge plus fresh croissants) and thoroughly enjoyed the pool & bar at...

We travelled from the UK and had to fly via Jo'burg. Needless to say, we were a little tired when we arrived. We soon perked up though as we were offered a complimentary drink at the pool bar while they checked the room was ready. We arrived at 11:30 and check in is officially 2pm, so this was very nice...
