The house design, the tasteful meals, the environment and the warm service of Sea Five added a terrific value to my experience in Cape Town. I enjoyed a wonderful relaxing time at the pool full of attentions and care. Furthermore the area is great for outdoor sports.

The best things about our stay at Sea Five were the location, graciousness and helpfulness of the staff, especially Marco and Rose, and the outstanding view from our Ocean View suite. We loved that the hotel was just two short blocks from the beach and restaurants in Camp Bay yet void of the noise and crowds. Being a small hotel... More

We stayed at Sea Five for 7 days and for sure it was not the last time! The service is amazing, people are absolutely lovely, friendly and helpful. Breakfast is delicious in a beautiful atmosphere. The style of the location is modern but warm at the same time.

Capitalising on an outstanding location, just 300 metres from South Africa’s most glamorous beach, The Sea Five offers seven exclusive ensuite rooms with clear, sweeping mountain and sea views.Guests can look forward to the rare treat of sleeping between the sheets of 100% pure Italian linen and waking up to the scent of fresh breads and croissants. There’s the harmony of a garden redolent with mandarin, lemon, lavender and rosemary or the sociability of a large blue pool and gorgeous bar. ... more   less
