It was a nice enough place, felt too out of Cape Town and away from all the major tourist attractions for me. Maybe a family would enjoy this location more. The rooms were spacious and clean. The Buffet breakfast was very average.

I recently spent a night in one of the cabanas on the beach - a prize for winning a local travel photo competition. The management pulled out all the stops in terms of welcome and special touches and as for that bed, it was the most comfortable matrass and blissfully soft feather and down duvet I have ever encountered. So... More

Very much a leisure type hotel although they do have small conference facilities. Right on the beach which is unusual in Cape Town and well situated to get into town or to other suburbs. Felt very much at home here. Good value and specials available. Excellent restaurant on site.

This establishment is a massive complex and offers a wide range of accommodations from beach front cabanas to double rooms. The grounds were beautifully maintained with thick green grass intermixed with flower gardens. There is a nice grassy play area for children. We stayed on two different occasions: first we had a double room with view of the lagoon (even... More

What a pleasure to open your sliding doors to sunshine and the sound of the ocean. This hotel has excellent position to discover the Wild flowers of the West Coast. We had a comfortable room and enjoyed breakfast in the mornings while watching whales from our breakfast table. Breakfast was a bit disappointing for my vegetarian travel partner. We would... More

I recently traveled with a group of college students to South Africa and stayed at the Dolphin Beach Hotel. Not knowing what to expect, I was a little apprehensive about staying here as I wasn't sure that there would be enough to keep my students engaged at the hotel once they completed their work in informal settlement communities. My apprehension... More
