Loved the room, looked out directly over the ocean. Great location right in the heart of Surfers. Had cocktails at the hotel bar and they were amazing. Bartender had an amazing attention for detail and provided excellent service. All staff were friendly. Great experience.

We have stayed at Soul twice now. Every staff member you meet (even in the lift) are friendly and helpful. We have a 6 year old daughter and the pools and proximity to the beach are second to none. Close to all shops and entertainment, you don't even have to get in your car. Will definitely come back.

We just stayed at Soul for 5 nights over the last week for a school holidays break. The staff are kind and helpful, the apartments are airy, modern and comfortable and the views are amazing. We had a two bedroom with balconies overlooking the amazing surf. The pool area was a bit windy so we didn't do much swimming, but... More

I stayed here recently on a 3 day stay with my 5 year old son. We were met at the front entrance by a very friendly staff member who directed us to reception on the second floor. We were promptly given our room keys and given instructions on where to park and how to find our room. We found a... More

I don't even know where to start, our stay at Soul was fantastic. The room was enormous and even bigger than pictures showed and the service from everyone on staff was fantastic (shout out to Bianca at reception!) The pool area was stunning and everything is in great condition. We will absolutely stay here again and would recommend it to... More
