Waking up to the sound of waves on the shore was lovely. Very clean, nicely decorated, every amenity and excellent breakfast. Nice touches such as blankets to keep you warm sitting on the terrace. Delicious breakfast. Secure parking.

This hotel is in a convenient location with the perfect proximity to the beach. You can't get much better than being right on it! We stayed in one of the deluxe upgraded rooms which was incredibly comfortable and stylish. The main area was spacious and allowed us to relax in the evening with a drink from the honesty bar.

We were warned about the effect of the Red Tide, and the nasty smell it brings. We didn't notice it. The unintended consequence of the Red Tide was that we could see the waves light up at night from our balcony. The team at the hotel were fantastic, as was the room we were in. We had never stayed at...

Very nice location directly at the ocean but a lot of rocks in front of the hotel, high tide diferences so it stinks at low tide. Good breakfast room, excellent breakfast, nice rooms but really poor beds

Dear 264Jrgenf Thank you for you review and rating. I think while you where visiting Jeffreys Bay we where experiencing a Red tide which brings along the unusual smell of the ocean. I hope you looked at it at night because it was actually quite extraordinary to see. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your vacation. On The Beach Team

We stayed there on a weekend, the place is very nice direct on the beach. We could observe beautiful sun rise from our room, saw plenty of dolphins from the balcony. The team was very friendly the breakfast was good.

Excellent location, very friendly staff, and Eggs Benedict to die for. Do not be put off if you arrive in the dark, because of all the security. We had no problems at all and everyone we met was very friendly.

If you arrive here expecting bed and breakfast or self catering then it's not bad but sold to us as a four star hotel which leaves it sadly lacking in ambience and personal service. Internet photos show interior rooms nicely decorated which is true but the exterior photos are random and misleading. There are no facilities outside for example sun...

Dear Claire Thank you for your review and we are sorry we couldn't meet your specific needs. We are a bed and breakfast and not a hotel and that is how we advertise/market ourselves as well. When coming to Jeffreys Bay people usually enjoy the beaches rather than staying at the guesthouse and for that we are perfectly located. Hope...

Large guest house right on the beach. Superb sea views from very large and comfortable guest lounge on first floor. Excellent breakfast with wide choice of dishes. Our room was much smaller than expected from web site pictures with a large bath and wash basin right in the room! Comparatively expensive for the size and quality of the room.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
On The Beach Boutique Guesthouse and Suites in Jeffreys Bay offers a relaxed and refined atmosphere in which to enjoy the spectacular setting right on the beach. The classic design, elegant décor and harmonious ambience, combined with incredible views from most rooms, as well as the upstairs lounge, bar and outdoor verandahs, relaxes and rejuvenates and is ideal for business, pleasure - or both. We offer free use of our beach chairs, -umbrellas and -towels to our guests. Experience the magic of a sundowner barbeque right on the edge of the beach ... Braai/barbecue facilities and picnic tables are available in front of the guesthouse, either on the front lawn in the sculpted, indiginous garden leading down to the beach or on the sand lower down - obviously all with great views! The braai room is fully equipped with Weber braai's, tongs, cutlery, crockery and glasses to be used on wooden picnic tables outside. Perfectly located just 50 minutes from the Port Elizabeth International Airport. The accommodation features a Penthouse Room, 2 Deluxe Rooms, 2 Superior Rooms, a Luxury Room, a Standard Room and 2 Two-bedroom Suites. Most Units have direct beach access and breathtaking beach and ocean views. Reveling in the splendor of its location, the upstairs lounges, bar, dining area and balcony is a celebration of the magnificent backdrop of the Indian Ocean which makes for a picture perfect setting. The soothing sound of the rolling waves soon becomes a constant reminder of exactly where one has come to unwind and rejuvenate. Watch dolphins and surfers share the same waves and experience luxury in harmony with nature. Allow us to share our warm hospitality and world class service. ... more   less
