We stayed at the dolphin beach hotel for two weeks whilst in SA for my sisters wedding. So pleased we chose it, the location is amazing with absolutely stunning views of table mountain from our window.

This hotel is situated right on the beach in the middle of kiting Mecca... You can pump your kite up outside your room and kite all day The rooms are huge but slightly dated. The hotel is clean but the finishings could be better. The food was good. I enjoyed my time here...
