I had not heard of De Hoop before my trip to South Africa, but it was one of the many highlights for me in the country. De Hoop offers game viewing, whale watching, hiking, biking, bird watching and other outdoor activities during the day and good food and comfortable accommodations at night. I wanted to see whales, and was originally... More

We were aware before we came to De Hoop that the roads were bad, and had psyched ourselves up for the 35km gravel road to the reserve. What we didn't realise was that there was then another good few kms to the accommodation area, and another 17kms of appalling, pot-hole ridden track to get to the main attraction, the sanddunes...

De Hoop is a serene and tranquill place to unwind and blend in with nature. Nini and William Stephens, propietors, made our stay so lovely. They and their staff went up and beyond to make sure we enjoyed every aspect of our stay. We felt the reserve is well priced and the cottages were very suitable for our family. The... More

My mum and I recently stayed at De Hoop for a girls getaway over the weekend. It was absolutely fantastic and a complete rejuvenation to the soul. We stayed in the self catering accommodation. The rooms were clean, a cosy fire was lit every evening (it can get really cold there), living areas were large enough to entertain guests and... More

We stayed here for one night only in mid July 2014 during our tour of the Cape. We stayed in one of the stables which was beautifully decorated but very cold. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, arranging for us to be driven to see the whales in the hotel's jeep as the dirt tracks to the coast from... More

This was the second time we stayed in de Hoop. We stayed in the Mountain Zebra cottage and although this is one of the smaller cottages it is still very nice to stay there. We had dinner in the restaurant, which was the most expensive dinner we had during our 2 week stay in SA. The food was OK, but... More

I must say I had no idea where I was going to stay or what the food or rooms would be like. All were amazing. We were on a 3 day art course run by the De Hoop Collection and it was worth every cent. Besides the lovely historical environment of an old cape Dutch type farm , I had... More

Although the cottage was equipped with a wonderful HUGE bed, and percale linen, the tiny, dreary, bathroom/shower let this room down. It is not en-suite, and is shared with occupants if any, from the second bedroom We had to request maintenance to come and fix/replace the shower head, as it was so blocked it was difficult to get wet -...

We stayed in a camp rondawel for three nights and really enjoyed it. The view of the vlei is so relaxing and we enjoyed the beach and the rock pools. Overall an amazing stay. The gravel roads would have been more comfortable with a high clearance vehicle though!

Enjoyed our stay thoroughly! The setting was perfect and not too secluded from other guests. The night sky was brilliant and made for fantastic astrophotography! Watch out for baboons and their charging on your food / kids.
