Rhoda and the staff of "On the Beach" could not have been more accommodating and friendly. A week of being pampered at one of the more luxurious locations in South Africa. The breakfasts on the deck were a magnificent way to start a day, with long walks on the beach but a few steps away! We will definitely be back again, and again...

Everything is marvellous there: The rooms overlooking the ocean, the bathroom with stylish interior, the lobby and the terrace, where the breakfast is served by most friendly staff. A short staircase brings you directly to the sandy beach, where you can walk many miles (if you want...). We are dreaming to return sometimes in the future.

We had a suite on first floor and found it both familiar and stylish. The breakfast outside with view on the ocean was fabulous including a first class service. What could be better is to have an additional door towards the living room, to keep the noise out of the suite. That's why we only give a very good for the room.

Dear Traveller
Thank You for choosing On the beach to be your accommodation in wilderness.
I am glad that you enjoyed your breakfast outside, to the full views of the ocean and loud sound of the waves. I am so happy you let us know that we manage to give you a first class service.
About the noice, i apologize on behalf of entire hotel staff, but I would love to hear from you where the noice was coming from? was it the music in the lounge area? other guests in the lounge area? or the staff or from the breakfast area? if possible please send us an email so that we can sort out this problem as we strive to give our guests the best accommodation and experience in our lovely hotel.

Best Wishes
Ted

Location, location, location!! On the Beach has it all - beautiful bedrooms, attentive and professional staff and a position above the beach usually only seen in smart magazines. However, this all comes at a price - and some price this is!
Our en suite first-floor bedroom was large but with only a narrow veranda. The stoop deck where breakfast is served (weather permitting) can become a little crowded if everyone decides not to move onto the beach which is down just a few steps.
Nonetheless, a beautiful location - at a price!

Room Tip: The corner suite 4 on the first floor is great . Be aware the 2 ground floor rooms open onto the stoop deck!

Situated right on the beach, the views are spectacular in every direction. Stunning breakfast combination of buffet (pastries, cereals, breads, preserves etc) and a la carte from the kitchen. The fresh croissants are to die for and the crunchy hashbrowns are a nice touch on the English breakfast. Indulge in an amazing hot chocolate if it's a cooler day.
