Nestled in a nature reserve, with a beautiful view of the Altantic, in rustic luxury. The guests here are treated like friends, and the service is top notch. We enjoyed meeting the other guests from around the world in the friendly living room of this facility with an old mansion at the center. We stayed on of the deck house... More

The Camps Bay Retreat is a hidden gem in Cape Town or Camps Bay, this small private hotel is set in the most beautiful part of Camps Bay away from the hussle but with still walking distance to everything you need to do and see. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and offer assistance... More

What a wonderful boutique hotel. Friendly staff all wanting to help. Beautifully appointed room in the true 1920's style. Great dinner and tasty breakfast with the sea crashing in the background. What a surprise coming back to the room. Bottle of MCC Brut Rose, chocolate cake with a message and a steaming hot drawn bath. Lots of rose petals. Very... More

Had a superb time in Camps Bay, the units are situated less than 10 mins walk to the beach as well as a supermarket and restaurants. Cape Town is also not too far from (home). Overall it was a great stay.

had a water leak through the roof onto the bed and had to be moved to another room at night. Both rooms had electrical problems, couldn't use the aircon and some plugs because the electricity tripped.

Best location in Camps Bay. Perfect place to stay for the Family traveler. Self catering unit had everything we needed and the units are serviced daily! Parking was available and the unit was on the main bus route for public transport and the "Hop on Hop Off" bus route. We will definitely return if our budget allows it!

I stay at Camps Bay Resort periodically and always find the accommodations clean and affordable. I have stayed there as a couple in a 1 bedroom unit, solo in a Room and in a group with friends/family in a 3bedroom unit. Staff is always very helpful and the location is great.

The view, the atmosphere, the room, the place, the people and even the dog. A feeling of paradise.We loved it. If the sunset at Camps Bay is allready one of the most beautiful ones in the world, seen from Camps Bay Retreat, it is undescriptible. The garden that leads towards the coast is amazing with its immense natural swimming pool.... More
