“One night stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Perfect location. Walk to the beach. Lots of Restaurants in walking distance and with a nice view over the beach. Inside parking is also available. We had an apartment facing away from the beach, so unfortunately no sea view, but nice size and clean. Bathroom quite small. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Camps Bay Resort is situated at a perfect location. At the front the ocean, at the back Table Moutain. People are friendly and helpfull. The apartment could use a facelift. We shared a suites with an other couple for only two days at the end of our trip from Johannesburg to Cape Town. After living in a camper for 4 weeks it's very relaxing to have a large bed and a toilet nearby. After the check out we stored our bags in a secured room and short before we were flying home we could use an apartment to fresh up (R 250). Supermarket and a lot of restaurants on walking distance. The secured parking in the front is very nice (R80/day).

Room Tip: Corner suite at the left side is next to the theater and it could be some noise when the people leav...

For a first visit, we were in for a treat. The apartment was really in a great location which made it easy to entertain the kids with the beach or the playground just across the street.
The apartment in itself was nice though the equipment was pretty limited. Very few TV channels and cutting a lot with the wind. Also the windows are getting old and on windy days there were some pretty chilly moments when wind would sneak under the door or the windows. Thanks for adding a electric radiator, it really helped.
Apart from that, we were very happy about that solution and it was kept very clean throughout our stay.

Very helpful staff at Reception. Clean rooms & efficient room service.
Breakfast at Primi was very good once it was clarified that the vouchers were for R80 & not R60 as printed.
Supermarket very nearby and plenty of good Restaurants along the sea front, but accomodation fine for sepf catering if that's what you prefer.

Room Tip: Probably need to request a room with a sea view. Ours was behind Reception, 'Bondi', near t...

Very nice and clean rooms, friendly staff who try and accommodate their clients at all times. Was a bit noisy between 11pm and 1am but it all depends on the location of your room.

If you are someone who go to bed at 10 pm, ask for a room away from the road and back of Primi's kitchen. Our room was across the road from the little pub on the corner and jovial people on there way home do not care about guest sleeping.

We booked a 2 bedroom unit as we were travelling with our 2 year old daughter who sleeps best in her own room. The unit was clean and basically appointed. Don't count on the TV, there are few channels. The options to order out are terrific and we made good use of them. The unit is self catering and we went to the Primi only once for breakfast which was really, very good.
Our only disappointment was that the bathroom window was broken, and therefore wouldn't close. THis made for VERY cold bathtime for our daughter and shower time for us. After 3 requests to the main desk, it was never fixed or mentioned to us, in fact, I don't think they ever even came to investigate and of course, we all got sick and spent the last 4 days of an otherwise dreamy vacation, at various pharmacies in search fo remedies and quick fixes. When asked if we had an excellent stay when checking out I said it was OK and when they asked why, I told them and our only fee, parking, was waived, that was 20 dollars total. I feel they could've done more-like fix my window when it's 1 degree at night and there's a 2 year old who could catch her death. Otherwaise, beautiful ocean views but very noisy at night time

Room Tip: Room 24 or 28, memory fails, Block 2 or B, I forget the system already! Beautiful views but noisy an...

Dear Valued Guest
Unfortunately we only offer a limited bouquet on Satellite television therefore we mention all the channels provided on the Camps Bay Resort website.

My sincere apologies for the poor communication with regards to the window in the bathroom; the fact that we were waiting on an outsourced supplier should have been communicated to you or an alternative apartment offered.

Due to the location of Camps Bay Resort there are some apartments that will experience social noise and therefore we encourage guests to confirm the location of their apartment when making a reservation as mentioned on our website.

I would like to thank you for your detailed feedback and hope to have you and your family with us in the near future.

Kind Regards
Chantel Wessels

I stayed with my mom and son in a two bedroom apartment. It was sea facing ground floor unit. The apartment very clean, ladies at reception very helpful. The resort is located next to beach and lots of restaurants. The red bus busstop only 3 min walk, bus great way to see cape town.

Room Tip: Choose apartments sea facing, amazing views.
