No matter what the weather in unpredictable Cape Town Bantry Bay is so sheltered the weather here seems to be 99% wind free! The resort is ideal for families if your kids are 5 yrs and over. No access to beach from resort and not much open space to move around. A great check in spot if u are not... More

We spent a fantastic week at Bantry Bay. The units are built on the rocks, virtually "almost" in the ocean. You have breathtaking 180 degree sea views. The apartments are newly renovated and are excellently equipped. Wonderful beds, nice furniture and most importantly, very helpful and friendly staff. Bantry Bay runs a shuttle service to the V&A waterfront, as well... More

My husband, toddler and I stayed at the Bantry Bay International in Dec 2014. I have mixed feelings about the place, so let's start with the cons: The fittings in the room are dated and very cheaply done. In addition, many parts of the room are in need of repair. For example, the towel rack and tissue holder literally fell... More

We stayed at the resort a week ago and were so impressed with the apartment and the excellent staff. Nearer to the sea, you cant get. The rooms are immaculate. Neat and clean. The view is to die for. Falling asleep with the beautiful noise of the waves and waking up with the sun rising over the ocean, is such... More

I rated it excellent because of the views, daily maid service, free shuttle and friendliness of the staff. Plus we are premium RCI and for the first time were upgraded from a studio to a 3 bedroom. Keep in mind we are right before the high season in December. Furnishings are comfortable. Slept great with the surf on the rocks... More

Once again - I was reliving a dream I had a about revisiting this lovely hotel - my brother-in-law had time share there many years ago (even though we lived in Constantia Cape Town) it's still the same, beautiful - at night you can hear the waves against the rocks - so soothing - ahhhh, the area is great too...

Bantry Bay International Resort is a self catering resort which is run like a 5 star hotel sans a restaurant. The service of the staff is excellent. We spent a week in August 2014 (winter!!) in a one bedroom duplex apartment on the second floor. The bedroom and bathroom are located upstairs and do become warmer at times. The aircon... More
