I booked my stay here as it was recommended for guests to a wedding held at The Bay. The studio flat, Daytona, was certainly very clean and comfortable BUT this unit had no privacy at all as right on the edge of the swimming pool. This meant there was no private place to sit outside for my morning coffee. Unfortunately it gets worse ... no hot water on my arrival. I reported this the following morning and had workmen coming in and out of my unit virtually all day. On return from the wedding I found there was still no hot water. I finally had a hot shower on my 3rd night, and departed the following morning. I therefore recommend not booking this particular flat #7 Daytona.

The location of the property and service were exemplary. The staff were professional, patient, and kind. The room was well appointed. The location got a bit loud at night, but it is because of the excellent location near restaurants, etc.

Stone cottages lovely, but the studio ones quite cramped. If the pergolas were actually covered and not just wooden slats, it would have been nice. Obviously, in nice weather, one can sit outside, but in raining weather, the studios have nowhere to sit inside. The pool on the stone cottage side was lovely. The staff were friendly. Think they should already have the fridge switched on when they know someone is checking in. Will try the studios on the other side with the 2 pools next time. Excellent value for the location.

We had a terrible experience here. Our first room was up the tiniest staircase looking over the resident homeless guy’s spot. The room itself was like a shoebox with hardly any room to move around the bed & the bathroom was dated, was dirty and smelt so bad. We lasted about 3 minutes before going to ask for another room. We literally had to beg to be moved & we were told the manager was on his break so we would come back in an hour. Eventually, we were moved in to a 2nd room. Initially we thought it was clean although dated but a closer inspection proved us wrong. We were even put off getting a shower. We asked to be moved again, to be told the hotel was full. It was like a backpacker’s hotel. Russian girls next door sat outside talking, screaming & jumping in pool until early hours. When we called reception there was no answer. We reported this the following day but nothing was done & we had the same problem for a 2nd night. We moved to a 3rd room the following day. This room had been renovated and had a good view, however fixtures & fittings were badly fitted, the door didn’t close properly, bathroom door fell off more than once & there was 1 double socket to supply a fridge, microwave, fan (cos non of the rooms had air con) & kettle. No mirror for hair drying. To top it off we had to pay for parking, something which I have never come across in all the hotels I’ve stayed. Will not be recommending this place and will definitely not be back!

Be warned! Not like it is in the photos. Very rundown with noisy building works going on from 9am, so you can’t chill by the pool due to the angle grinder! This is a place that takes your money and has zero interest in the comfort of its guests. We came in a group, some friends had a room with absolutely no view or outlook. They asked to change everyday, but, it didn’t happen. I would strongly advise to book elsewhere.

Comfortable accommodation and great, helpful staff. Great location on Camps Bay Main Street by the sea and Lido. Next to shops and restaurants. Very secure place to stay and felt totally safe around the complex.

Had a great time in Cape Town. It is an absolutely beautiful city. Enjoyed the Cape Town International Jazz Festival, the tours around Cape Town as well as the visit to Table Mountain.

However. . .

We got burgled on our last night there. The motorised vehicle gate was not working, so you could just slide it open by hand. No form of access control.

We get to our room, unlock the door and find our personal belongings scattered everywhere. We had to wake the security guard up when we returned from supper that night. There was no sign of forced entry, but everything was a mess. Some of our personal belongings were gone and those that they didn't take were scattered all over the place.

In house security was of no help. They just stood around looking at us. Camps Bay Community Policing Forum (CPF) and South African Police Service (SAPS) Camps Bay were more helpful. Looks like an inside job. SAPS said the same thing.

We were told by the staff that they only cover the items in the safe. (A very small safe that will fit a wallet).

Three months down the line and Camps Bay Resort just seem happy to get us out of there as fast and quietly as possible. There has been no further correspondence from them since we checked out.

My worry is not about the cash or the items that were taken, it is that Camps Bay Resort might have criminals working for them. How else would anyone explain this situation? Thankfully we were not there when the thieves made their move. Who knows where we would be if they had found us there.

Be careful. Be vigilant, especially on your last day/night.

Hi - there is an excellent bus service into Cape Town from Camps Bay so it is possible to travel in to pick up a car. We used Thrifty and found the picking up process to be time consuming. The manageress was very helpful though when we needed a GPS replaced.
