Amazing Stay at POD: A Gem in Cape Town

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 01 Jun 2024
My husband and I stayed at POD during our first trip to Cape Town and we will definitely be back!
POD is located in a convenient location in Camps Bay, close to the beach, shops and restaurants. The rooms are modern and we had a lovely view of the beach and Table Mountain. However, the highlight of the hotel, is definitely the staff. Everyone went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable.
Would highly recommend!

From beginning to end, the experience was incredible. The room, cleverly designed to maximize space, was clean, comfortable & stylish. The staff couldn’t have been friendlier or more helpful. Ideally located near beach and restaurants

We’ve spent a week at the Pod Hotel, it was perfect from the first day. The team is really dedicated, from the reception to the room maids - special shoutout to Caamil, the POD’s matchless bartender !
The location is perfect, the surroundings are safe and the views are 🧘‍♂️🧘‍♂️ Strongly recommend !

I recommended my guests ( family of 4 ) from Australia. They really like the place and they will be back soon . Camps Bay is one of the best place to visit with nice restaurants on the beach promenade. You have also to visit 3th beach Clifton ………..

The service is absolutely second to none from EVERY SINGLE member of staff. From reception (Nick &Wesley), housekeeping, bar & restaurant staff (Janet, Ceccy), pool (Camiil) and EVERYBODY we met - wow, wow, wow. The hotel is a short walk from the main drag of Camps Bay which is ideal, as you're away from the noise of the bars & restaurants. Rooms 101 & 201 are large suites with incredible views onto the beach. Beds also very comfortable, large screen TV's with all channels and the bathroom products are fab. If you're looking to stay in Camps Bay - look o further.

Dear Ken W,

Thank you for your heart-warming review and for taking your time to share your positive feedback with us.

We must agree that we have the perfect location with easy access to restaurants and the beaches, however, away from the noise of the Camps Bay strip as you mention. Thank you for your additional compliments on our Deluxe Suites, beds, TV's, amenities and the service you received from my team, but especially that of Janet, Concy, Caamil, Nick and Wesley. Your kind words have been shared with my team and it is very much appreciated.

We hope to welcome you back to POD in the not too distant future.

Warm Regards,
Micaela & The POD Team

This was the perfect ending to our 2 week honeymoon in SA. It was the epitome of relaxing. From our arrival to leaving the team were so warm, friendly and helpful. Service here really is another level compared to other hotels..the whole team was great and went above and beyond but a special mention to Caamil in the bar who was excellent. We loved all the little touches here; sun cream by the pool, beach bag in the room, snacks and drinks included in your room. Location was perfect. Watching the sunset from the pool area was a highlight and chilling here in the day was also so relaxing. Rooms were comfortable. What's not to love?! Would love to come back one day, hopefully soon!
