Wow - this place should definitely be on everyone's bucket list. The views are enough to take your breath away and the staff are second to none. The location is absolutely ideal to get into Cape Town (just 30 minutes) but escape to the peace and quiet when you are done! The staff can't do enough for you and it... More

Nested next to the sea overlooking HoutBay this little gem is worth a visit. Parking is top of the hill from where you are fetched and driven down to the hotel. Rooms are next to the sea with views of the bay. Dinner is served in a small dining room - we had an excelled 5 course meal. Breakfast on... More

We thought we'd missed the turn off as we headed along the very scenic Chapmans Peak Drive but once we turned into the parking lot and were greeted like returning friends, we knew it was going to be wonderful. The first thing about Tintswalo is that it's tucked away, an intimate, hidden retreat, looking out over the Atlantic towards Hout... More

Completely invisible and tucked away into the cliffside and right on the waterfront, you could easily miss this hidden gem. The drive alone, along Chapmans Peak is absolutely fabulous. When you arrive at the gate at the top of the cliff, you get picked up and driven down to the hotel in a golf cart. The welcome is very personable... More

Complete luxury, right on the ocean front listening to the crashing waves. If you're looking to get away from it all, book yourself into this wonderful hotel. The rooms are so elegant with great attention to detail. The service was extremely attentive & the staff very friendly. The food in the restaurant was just delicious , again with great service....

Wow, we had an outstanding time @ Tintswalo Atlantic! My husband surprised me for my birthday with a night at this amazing gem of a place. We were pampered and spoilt from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. All of the staff were amazing, the food suburb, and then of course the setting! As the other reviews... More

I had an amazing experience!! It was one of the best places I ever went in my life. I really love the roons, all of then have a perfect view, especially if you have free time on sunsets. Tintswalo is a piece of heaven. I love it.

When you arrive in your suite and open your sliding door , you are mere meters from the ocean. The views were breathtaking and we watched a seal play in the surf. The rooms are beautiful with incredible attention to detail. There was one part of the experience that was a disappointment though. The food in the restaurant is average... More
