I just loved this hotel we stayed in for 4 nights during our 2 weeks in Cape Town. It has a very good location ( I would say the best in Camps Bay), very nice design, rooms are very spacious and decorated in white and light colors 4 pools (important since you cannot swim in the ocean) and a delicious...

Just returned from our first visit to South Africa and spent the last 3 days chilling at the Bay and what a great place. We had a fantastic premier sea view room which also had a pool view thanks to our travel agent at Azure. The staff are tremendous and are what makes this hotel so special. The rooms and... More

The hotel building itself needs maintenance work badly. Carpets on the first floor dirty. Lift was broken upon arrival and still the next day. Ended up with quite a few insect bite marks during our stay in the room. Services from the pool bars very slow and going through the motions. No real interest or hospitality. Services at reception was... More

As a long term Camps Bay resident, and someone who appreciates the offerings at both The Bay and The Retreat, I was grossly disappointed at how badly a simple task was relayed, leaving me angry and disappointed in Village & Life and their staff. For the past few years my wife and 'tween' girls have enjoyed the spa facility at... More

We stayed here in January and had a brilliant time. The hotel is beautiful and in a stunning location. We were fortunate to be given an upgrade to a luxury sea view room and can certainly recommend it. Breakfast was delicious, plenty of choice from the buffet and also choice of cooked to order breakfasts. We also had dinner which... More

When we arrived we had a fantastic welcome and the staff were very attentive. We were early, so as expected, our room wasn't ready, it was a beautiful day so we were happy to go and sit by the pool. The hotel has a great deck area and is right on the road by the beach so its probably the... More

I reviewed the Bay hotel on my visit last year and my views about the place have not changed..... I love it! Stayed here on two occasions this trip. The hotel boasts the best location in Camps Bay but the thing that makes the place so special is the staff, they are great. We had two super rooms on both... More

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at The Bay. The service, accommodation, staff and the position of the hotel were second to none. Breakfast was a dream with absolutely everything you could think of on offer. Ideally placed with walking distance to a huge variety of restaurants and cafes and the beautiful beach right outside the door. The private pool... More

Stayed here with my husband for a portion of our honeymoon. Rooms are clean but need updating especially the bathroom. Shower is really tiny. Staff and service is amazing. Wifi sucks! Location is beautiful. Free breakfast was good! I would stay here again.

This is my second visit to the Bay and it's lovely. There is an elegance about the hotel and it's probably situated in the best location in Camps Bay. The hotel does however need a little decorating, the bathrooms were (we stayed in two rooms) a little dated, as were the carpets in our rooms. The staff are great and... More
