We had a wonderful 2 nights stay at the Whale Coast Ocean Villas in the heart of the Cape winter. Everything was super: the room, bathroom, the open lounges, the views, breakfast, staff, parking, everything.

Our family of 3 had a perfect stay, off season in July 2022, staff was very attentive and provided valuable suggestions for local travel and restaurants. Plus Beach Access is only steps away through a secret passageway from the neighborhood straight down to the beach. The facility was well prepared for load shedding "blackouts" with rechargeable lanterns and updates via ESKOM energy app. Lovely!

This was our second stay in this hotel. The room was clean und the people working there were very friendly. The choices at breakfast were good and everything tasted delicious. The only thing I would recommend is, that there could be more fruits at breakfast. Thanks for a great stay. We will come again.
