In and out so could not really comment on much other than very pleasant, met all my needs. Rooms were spacious, enough beverages to get me through the night. Breakfast was substantial, wi-fi worked and was relatively fast.

This is an outstanding B&B. It has great service, great facillities, great location and very homely. I had a very pleasant stay. The only thing i would have liked more of is more TV channel options, but other than that it was great. I would go back there again.

I really enjoyed my stay at Palm Beach.Palm Beach has wonderful facilities , friendly and approachable staff and is a stone throw away from the beach. The breakfast was delicious and the rooms are very clean, comfortable and spacious. I can't wait to return.

As a visiting family from the US on a long road trip throughout South Africa, we discovered the Palm Beach Guesthouse by driving around Summerstrand and found its location and exterior appearance quite appealing. Once we saw the inside of the guest house, we knew it would be perfect for our family of four. Our two-bedroom suite was very spacious,... More

Very friendly and accomodative service. The exceptional view and the fact that it is a few meters from the sea is just an added bonus.The breakfast was exceptional and will satisfy any taste. The cosy lapa allows you to relax with the sea in the background!
