The stay was pleasant and clean enough, staff were friendly but the room was small and pokey - The TV did not work and the staff did not bother to even try and fix it. The safe also didn't work. Breakfast was ok (very small portions) and coffee was excellent. If you do stay here - ask for a sea... More

We had one of the smaller rooms but nonetheless it was a great experience. Stunning view from the roof terrace at the bay. Great starting or finishing point for a South African trip. Very friendly staff!

We had the Penthouse Suite and it was wonderful. A vast amount of light and airy space, well furnished and spotlessly clean. Good size and comfortable bed. Lovely sea view with access onto an enormous roof terrace. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful and there was a good choice of breakfast foods. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in future.

Spent some amazing time and it was made all the better for having stated here. Rooms and house are excellently appointed and the staff are a friendly & professional team. Breakfast is excellent. Stayed in the Honeymoon suite which was well equipped and beautifully decorated and furnished. Would recommend Oceana Palms over any other in the area.

An incredible welcome! Ocean views spread out before us, to be enjoyed from the tranquility of our luxurious room. Everything we could want was graciously catered for by the lovely staff. Cannot wait to book our next stay! Thank you to all the lovely ladies that made our stay so memorable.

Very warm welcome by Tania and her team, was even upgraded to honeymoon suite (although a single traveller:-). This suite is just great with a spacious balcony and a great view. Parking can be a problem because drive-way is very steep. I parked my car off-street, but had no problem at all. Very well situated for trips to the wine... More
