We really enjoyed out stay here. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful (Beauty served us for breakfast and gave us a huge big grin every morning), the rooms are beautiful and enormously spacious. We will definitely be back to stay when return to Cape Town to visit.

We wish at the end of our stay, that we had added on a couple more nights. This is a lovely small boutique hotel located... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this wonderful place. Going back somewhere is sometimes quite daunting as it can disappoint. Not this place, the room, service, were just great. Our special thanks to Tess and her lovely ladies. She goes out of her way to help make your stay as comfortable as possible. Her lovely ladies (and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our stay in South Africa. We have stayed in the other Last Word Resorts at the Long Beach and Franschhoek so knew what we were letting ourselves in for...... Constantia exceeded our expectations and more, the staff were so helpful, as I was on crutches due to an accident before... More

I don't want to say too much about this hidden gem for fear of not getting a room when we return and we will be for sure! In short, a wonderful, oasis of a place to stay, and it should be kept a quiet secret! My husband and two boys aged 9 and 6 went for a 2 week holiday... More
