We stayed at the Protea Hotel in Saldana Bay in late May 2015, it was cold when we arrived but the HUGE fireplace was so inviting! The staff were so friendly and welcomed our 2 sons with open arms, they even had kiddie party packs for them. They were a huge hit. Our room overlooked the water, it was very... More

The name Saldanha immediately brings to mind "canned pilchards and sardines". Add Protea Hotel to that now! Situated strategically at the edge of the bay overlooking Mykonos on the other side of the bay, this hotel has been revamped and has the most beautiful, spacious rooms and a luxurious bathroom. Guests immediately feel welcome here with the warm, helpful and... More

It was a cold winter afternoon. The receptionists were so welcoming and warm-hearted. The view of the suit was very beautiful despite the raging Air blowing from the sea-side. The cleanliness of room was astonishing. We looked around for alternative rooms which were deemed beautiful and found two, which we didn't like. We finally hung on to the last available... More

Very nice place! Food is brilliant and child friendly. Rooms are clean and modern. Staff is friendly and helpful. View is awesome and nice to relax in the lounge sipping on a drink. Will defiantly recommend them to stay when in Saldanha or nearby. We will go back again.

This hotel has the most stunning view of Saldanha Bay from the Dining Room, Lounge and, if you are fortunate, most hotel rooms. The staff are generally very friendly and extremely helpful, top marks to them. The booking process was seamless and swift.

We stayed at the protea hotel for one night, in the 2 suites next to the swimming pool. Stunning views and a very very nice room, so we really wished we could chill around a little longer. We were running a race in Langebaan very early the next morning. First they arranged awesome meal packs for breakfast and they even... More
