We spent 4 nights at the Marine in August 2004 and found that all the staff were polite and extremely helpful. The room was superb and we could watch the whales whilst lounging in the bath for when we felt particularly lazy. The restaurant was excellent (but only the seafood restaurant was open while we were there).
We are returning in 2 months so I think that says it all.

We found the Marine on our way back to Cape Town and what can we say. We were totally indulged from the most fabulous picnic that was packed for our day on the beach (Watch out for whales) to the most beautiful room I've stayed in. We had a suite overlooking the ocean which was magnificent. The staff were attentive and my husband was spoilt with mini whale biscuits. Both of us were impressed and this followed stays in the Shamwari game reserve and Tsala treetops lodge both oustanding places. The Marine was immaculate and as we were out of season it was lovely and quiet. The food in the restaurant was excellent I can't wait to go back
We visited in Easter 2004
