We stayed here for four nights and were not disappointed. The team fall over themselves to look after you, book restaurants etc. The place is cool and contemporary - we loved it. We had a huge and lovely room (suite??) at the corner of the hotel overlooking the pool and across from the beach so could hear crashing waves -... More

I needed a retreat. It was the perfect location, the room was exquisitely adorned and tastefully decorated. The ENTIRE staff was "TOP" notch. I could have stayed for months. Our days consisted of a wonderful breakfasts, tours of one sort or another evening happy hour at the hotel with the view of the ocean, dinner out and then a quick... More

My wife and I were able to get away for one night and POD Camps Bay created the perfect escape! Unparalleled service, modern decor, gorgeous location! Can't wait to return! We were pampered and spoiled by commentary food and wine in our room.

We stayed at Pods during the first part of our honeymoon. From the time we booked to the day that we departed the hotel, the staff went above and beyond for us. They arranged for our transportation to and from the airport, they booked restaurant reservations for us which were all superb, and they even made reservations for all of... More

An excellent place to stay. Very quiet, but still quite close to Camps Bay town centre and beach. The hotel is impeccable in every way. Very well designed, comfortable and friendly. The staff couldn't do enough to help us with whatever we needed and always would offer us a coffee or bottle of water (complimentary!) while we were waiting for... More

We returned a week ago from a 12 night stay at the POD and cannot speak highly enough of the hotel. I travel extensively for business and have high expectations of hotels. These expectations were very much exceeded at the POD. As a previous reviewer mentioned it is a boutique hotel without any of the snottiness of many boutique hotels.... More

This is such a gem of a hotel. You can't even tell that it is a hotel from the street, it looks like a very sleek house! From the start we felt welcome and special.

What a fantastic hotel! As we arrived, we were told that we'd been upgraded from a luxury to a deluxe room. The room was super spacious; the decor uber-cool and the view great!

Just spent one night/two days at POD and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my visit. The high points are the service and the location, just steps from the beach at Camps Bay.
