“Wonderful Views and Location, Hard beds”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Stayed here recently on a visit to Cape Town as we exchanged a week through RCI timeshares. The views were amazing, every room looked out over the ocean with waves breaking below. Location was wonderful so we could walk to Camps Bay or Sea Point in the early evening along a running path. We rented a car and called ahead for a parking spot so had no problems with that. Also took the shuttle one day and the driver was quite nice - would pick us up whenever we called.

We stayed in a one bedroom loft, so it was basically one room with the living area downstairs and bedroom/bathroom upstairs. By the end of the trip I found it kind of annoying to run up and down the stairs all the time. Also, the beds were very hard and my husband rolls a lot in his sleep so the combination made it impossible to sleep.

We did a timeshare swap to this resort. It is great. The position, between Sea Point and Clifton is fantastic. The staff are friendly & the units clean. The pool is set in the rocks with the sea below you. Sea points' restaurants on your doorstep and Clifton and Camps Bay beaches just around the corner.

Room Tip: All the rooms are sea facing

Our apartment had a balcony with the sea right below it and we went to sleep each night with the waves breaking on the rocks below.Fantastic. The apartment was well appointed with everything we needed.The 3 bedrooms were very comfortable and the beds great. It is central and close to Campsbay,Seapoint & Cape Town and all the tourism facilities are close by.The Staff were super friendly. We really enjoyed our stay. Just too short. We will be back.

Room Tip: The larger suites are well worth the extra money for the space

This is an amazing place to stay at. they really do need to fumigate though. we found 5-6 huge roaches in our room over the space of 3 days! Such a great place but had to check out because of this.

The ocean view is breathtaking and its very close to the beaches and other amenities.

Book a parking spot in advance if you are renting a car as they dont have enough parking spots to cater for all their rooms.

In October 2012, I went to Cape Town for the first time with friends and we stayed at the Bantry Bay International Resort. I was very impressed with the srvice and the cleanliness of the place. The cleaning staff was very friendly and helpful. They had little extra touches like a daily weather report and they brought the local news paper to our unit daily which was a very unexpected surprise! The view from the rooms is amazing! I highly recommend this place!!

We have owned a couple of weeks timeshare at Bantry Bay for quite a few years. This was the first time we had utilised both weeks. A simply wonderful experience. Sean Daly and his team are so friendly and go out of their way to make everything just as it should be - and then some! The standards are very high. Imagine waking to the sight and sound of the sea crashing over the rocks right outside your window. Just magnificent! The slightest problem is dealt with quickly and efficiently. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: They are all good, but the higher numbered rooms on each floor may be very slightly quieter. Probab...

We just spent one week at this excellent resort.
The views,the location cannot be better.What made our stay very pleasant was the helpfulness of the staff. They all are very friendly,from the front desk to the maintenance team.There is also a free shuttle to take guests to the shopping areas.
The units are well furnished and .the beds are quite comfortable.
Would love to go back.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view of the ocean.
