I went to De Hoop with my family and we stayed at the Melkkamer Vlei Cottage. The 3 Melkkamer properties are in a different area of the park to the main accommodation. It is in a much more peaceful area and very beautiful. You do not have access to the amenities of the main reception/restaurant area. However the team who... More

The Reserve is a delight,especially for birders,but with unexpected game viewing.The cottages are well-equipped,clean and very comfortable. There is plenty of opportunity to get some good exercise or just have a quiet relaxing time. The restaurant is pleasant,with good value for money food and beverages,and friendly service all round in the resort. All in all a lovely place to relax... More

Enjoyed my trip here. There is plenty to do for 3 nights or so and the activity staff are very helpful. Mostly the activities are good value too. There is also a restaurant and bar area with Sat TV so you don't need to miss any sporting occasions if you don't want. :) I stayed in rondavels, which are not... More

We spent three nights here and loved it all. We took a nice guided walk by the sea with one of their guides, and an equally pleasant, informative birding walk with "Pinky" at 6am the next morning. On another day we walked for hours and hours along the seafront, which is fabulous, with coves and cliffs and beaches and sand... More

We had a fantastic time in De hoop. We were looking for something peaceful and surrounded by nature. I think we found it in De Hoop! Only little disappointment was the attitude of certain person of the staff after we found out that there was a price difference for the food between what I booked online (or with the main... More

3 hours from Cape Town makes it an easy getaway for the weekend. Lovely nature reserve. Accommodation was clean and comfortable. Restaurant was outstanding. Road very poor but good to keep the speed limits low. Saw the Cape Griffin vultures in their breeding spot! Stunning beaches and rock pools. Cape clawless otters. Gotta go back. 2 nights was not enough.

We stayed dinner ,bed and breakfast in the stable, very good. The room was clean, nice bathroom, food very good considering the location and distance from civilisation. We were lucky to have Louis as a guide and he is excellent. Do some of the tours they are really cheap and you learn a lot.

We only booked at last minute and took a Dinner, Bed Nd Breakfast option. Really glad we went. Whilst our hire car was covered in mud on arrival (we travelled the gravel roads after rainfall) we arrived to find we had the Bridal Suite - 39 years too late!
