Take in views of the beautiful waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the private marina from the Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront in Cape Town. This seaside hotel is close to the city center, as well as all the big cultural offerings. The striking ocean views set the stage for a memorable stay in Cape Town. Wake to the sound of gentle waves breaking on the shore before embarking on a day of exploration. Take our complimentary shuttle bus to and from the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront - a popular shopping, dining and entertainment area. Other nearby attractions include Table Mountain and Robben Island, which is home to one of the city's most visited museums.

A BIG shout out to Jerry at the gate who was the most welcoming host ever! I was meeting my husband who had already checked into the hotel the day before and was uncertain whether I would be recognized. However, I was met with a big smile and chivalrously escorted to the entrance of the hotel..

Hotel's Favourite
It was my first time in Cape Town and my first time at a Radisson Blu property and it was great. Everyone I encountered was friendly and eager to assist and the property itself is very well located with easy access to the waterfront area by a hotel shuttle. The view from the hotel’s restaurant is amazing and if you are lucky you will get to see an otter flapping about. I want to give special thanks to Zoe who checked me in, Lolo who does amazing omelets, Joel from the Spa and Yusuf from concierge. Would stay again 100% and will recommend.

I’m not usually a huge fan of chain hotels but the Radisson Blu Waterfront is a truly wonderful hotel. It’s in a super convenient location, a walk from the V&A Waterfront (shops, restaurants, the Robben Island boat) and a short drive to Camps Bay and the centre of Cape Town. The location is also absolutely stunning with gorgeous sea views (we spotted dolphins and seals regularly) and Table Mountain in the background. The pool area is beautiful and the staff were really helpful when it came to finding extra sun loungers for us. I was travelling with my husband and three children and were lucky enough to be upgraded to a two bedroom suite. This was really amazing with a living area and kitchen, two bedrooms and bathrooms, and a balcony with gorgeous views. The staff were all very kind and friendly, in particular Jerry at the gate and Desmond who helped us on our last day with our luggage and allowed us to use the spa showers before our night flight after we had checked out. Overall, this is a fantastic hotel that I would warmly recommend. I would love to have the chance to go back.
