When I walked into this heaven on earth paradise called Tintswalo Atlantic and confessed my hopeless ability to be romantic and that I needed help with formulating a proposal plan, the team there was unbelievably helpful. It's taken me 3 months to get down to writing this review, but the effort that was put in by the Melissa and Tatum... More

There's a part of me that was a bit reluctant to review Tintswalo Atlantic because it's just so good and it would be wonderful to keep it a secret. But that would be doing it's owners and wonderful staff a disservice. It's dramatic, beautiful atmospheric, romantic and just about perfect. Other reviewers have said it all, but I'll just add...

Spent three days at Tintswalo during the month of July.After a particularly stressful year Tintswalo was the ideal hideaway to nourish my soul.Located on pristine coastline with magnificent vistas of Hout Bay the exclusivity and privacy of the lodge is charming.We stayed in the Princes suite which is decorated in warm burnt orange and terra cotta colors.Great attention to detail.The...

My husband treated me to a night a Tintswalo Atlantic for my 40th birthday. What a magical place! It setting is unbelievably beautiful, right on the waters edge overlooking the Atlantic. One is made to feel so special. The food was unbelievable, the service world class and the whole experience completely uplifting. It's location, although so close to the heart... More

We stayed here in February 2014 but I felt compelled to write a review about Tintswalo Atlantic. It is the most beautiful, magical, serene, incredible place imaginable and we (and you!) will remember it forever. We arrived at sunset, having driven over Chapman's Peak, so that the light bathed Tintswalo in an astonishing shimmering orange/pink hue. The whole team was... More

Although we did not stay overnight (wish we could've !), we attended a family 80th birthday celebration lunch. On arrival we were greeted & served a super welcome cocktail drink by Melissa, a very friendly General Manager, plus the friendly & efficient staff. The setting is out of this world, right on the water's edge with the most magnificent view... More

This little boutique hotel was magical! The rooms are spacious and very well decorated. The view of the ocean is breath-taking. The staff is friendly and very well trained. Sun-downers were spectacular, with great cocktails prepared by the barman. Breakfast is to die for!! And the only noise is the waves crashing on the rocks right below the room. We... More

Beautifully located on the waters edge below Chapman's peak drive, Atlantic Tintswalo surpassed all our expectations in service, friendliness and exceptional food. The staff made every effort to make our first anniversary as special as our big day. Little notes written in pebbles were left in our room and messages in the butter on the table. The rooms of spectacular... More

We were treated by the highest service and most warm hearted family at Tintswalo Atlantic, We travel quite often and love being treated but this was something out of this world, from the romantic dinners, to the 3 course breakfast, and of course the views and waking up to the sound of the ocean. Surrounded by beauty we did not... More

As home to the most fawned over city-setting of mountain and sea and home to my favourite dining experience to date, superlatives fail to do justice in describing the Cape Town, a destination as gorgeous as it is delicious. This is what makes experience of Tinstwalo Atlantic so noteworthy - that it adds something singularly beautiful in a great abundance... More
