Wonderful location

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 24 May 2024via mobile
We returned here after a 5 year break from South Africa .

5th visit to this lovely hotel right on the beach at Paternoster.

The new Ocean King Suites are great.

Breakfast excellent.

Restaurant food good and only complaint is that they don’t change the menu or offer specials so after 3 nights it can get boring.

Staff all lovely and friendly.

I never invest in a plate of food or a portion size. I invest in an experience. At Leeto that is exactly what you will receive time and again. An experience. If you are going with friends to catch up. The right food and wine will arrive without you noticing it. If you are going to find peace in yourself...you will find it. If you go here just to admire the true creative capability of Africa, you will not be dissapointed. When life seems heavy, I have always have entered wonderland at Leeto and left as Alice

Special gratitude towards Shaheed, Stix, Jamie and the poor man behind the counter listening while I never bothered to ask his name.

Gratitude always and will see you in the spring

I took my husband to Strandloper Ocean Boutique Hotel for his 50th. We were met with a glass of champagne and snacks while we waited by the fire for our luggage to be taken to our room. The room was breathtaking. The view of the ocean absolutely stunning. We dined at Leeto on the Friday night. The portions were bigger than we thought they would be and the flavors were bold and delicious. Excellent meal and good value for money. When we arrived back at our room, we were blown away by the amount of effort to tidy our room, pack items neatly out, rose petals on the bed, a bottle of champagne waiting and a beautiful card wishing my husband the best 50th. Breakfast was yet another incredible experience with stunning views of the ocean and the food catering for every palate. We had a couples massage on the Saturday morning at their spa. Both my husband and I say it was the best massage we have ever had. The weekend was truly unforgettable. My only regret is that we ate at Wolfgat the Saturday night instead of at Leeto again. The attention to detail and level of service was honestly "next level". We will certainly be referring all our friends and family to this gem on the West Coast. Thank you to all the staff for something truly special which we will remember and cherish for the rest of our lives.

Room tip: Eat at Leeto. Don't bother booking anywhere else.

Beautiful sublime and peaceful . Excellent service and friendly staff. The rooms were well designed and clean. The restaurant had good food and the hotel is situated at the edge of the sea. We opted for the new suites and it was well worth it. Definitely a place to come back to again and again.

Room tip: Good parking close to the main center , plenty of other restaurants options

We stayed at Strandloper a few years ago. it was excellent then, but it is even better now.

On parking our vehicle there was someone to assist with our luggage even before I had turned off the vehicle's ignition.

We received a very warm welcome at reception and completed a short and simple check-in whilst seated in the lounge with a welcome drink. Then it was off to our courtyard room (no views), which was tastefully decorated, spotless, with private outdoor seating area and a great shower. We were very happy with our choice of accommodation.

We stayed for two nights. On each evening we ate in the hotel's restaurant. The ambience, setting (view out to the beach and sea), service and food were fantastic. Special mention of Lauren who served us on two separate occasions. Breakfasts were also fantastic.

On the Sunday we did a three hour guided walk of the town, a 10 minute walk away and its beaches with Bruce - very enthusiastic and knowledgeable!

A friendly check out from the same gentlemen who checked us in (sorry, I didn't catch his name, but he said he was originally from Soweto, Johannesburg). We were very sorry to leave.

I travel a lot, stay in many places, but this has got to be at the top of our list - a combination of the setting, the food and impeccable service

Room tip: A sea view is fantastic, but not a necessity - the court yard rooms (no views) were great, about a 2 minute walk to take in the beach views
