The Sea Five Boutique Hotel is a real gem, situated in a very nice neighbourhood in Camps Bay. It is completely safe, you can walk around to restaurants, the beach or where ever you like without any risk. The staff is very nice and competent. And Capetown with the waterfront is only about a 15 min drive away...

The staff and overall amenities are very nice. It is clean and modern. It just 2 blocks walking distance to many restaurants in Camps Bay. Be warned, there are many stairs in this hotel and no elevator. Also, the room keys remain on a table in the entryway at the hotel while you are out. Be sure to lock valuables... More

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.

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
