“Surpasses all expectations!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

There are very few locations in the world where the actual setting, views, and rooms exceed the expectations portrayed by the professional photos. And there are even fewer locations where the remarkable setting is complimented by outstanding service from all staff levels. By the end of our sensational week-end at Tintswalo we felt like we had become friends with everybody and so a return trip is so easily confirmed. The rooms are spacious and bright, and delightfully decorated in a range of various island themes, with 8 of the 12 at sea level and blessed with the most magnificent views and private decks literally jutting out over the rocks. The dining experience is classy and personal and the range of culinary delights and extensive winelist make it hard to leave the hotel to experience some of the city's world renowned restaurants. All in all this is possibly the best hotel in the best city in this amazing country. The setting is quite magnificent and it's difficult to believe that a hotel even exists along the famous and gorgeous Chapman's Peak drive. Thank you so much to Melissa and her extraordinary team for exceeding our expectations in every way.

We picked Tintswalo as the venue for our destination wedding knowing that it is the most spectacular and romantic place we could imagine. Our guests who flew in from all reaches of the globe shared the most incredible weekend here. The service, friendliness and professionalism shown at Tintswalo meant that we could only utter praise.

A great setup and a great team. Looking forward to coming again!

This small restaurant is amazing! The views and setting are hard to beat even in South Africa where there a plenty of beautiful views!
It's hard to get in as it is tiny but do try!
The food was wonderful but expensive - however you are paying for the experience!
Major highlight of our trip to beautiful Cape Town!

Wow wow wow, this place is out of this world and has so many personal touches. The setting is stunning,you are right on a small private beach with stunning views over the beautiful Hout Bay mountains. The suites are huge, service warm and friendly and the food brilliant. Lots and lots of wow factor, the only negative was having to leave, I will definitely stay here again thank you

I travel worldwide. Every single time I arrive at this hotel I feel so spoiled and special.
Staff that has become like old friends cannot wait to offer all their guest cold or hot beverages.
My favorite marmalade in the morning at breakfast. My coffee specially brought to my suite when they know that I am awake. Not that there is not the freshest filter coffee, all types of exotic teas and fully stocked fridge with milk, lemon and drinks in my room. Freshly baked rusks and cookies in exquisite glass jars waiting to be eaten....
Loved the heated swimming pool with the best view.
But there is no place on this earth that compares with the joy, peace, beauty and the best staff ever like this amazing exclusive hotel. Thank you for the wonderful time at your hotel. I cannot wait for my next visit. Well done Ryno and Melissa !

We have recently spent the most wonderful weekend at Tintswalo Atlantic. . It is a small intimate lodge at the foot of Chapmans Peak near Hout Bay. It must be one of the most spectacular locations in the world. The service was impeccable, not intrusive at all, but our every need was met. We had breakfast on the deck overlooking the Atlantic and was treated to Dolphins playing in the waves. The views of the mountains and Chapmans peak are awesome. As it faces due west the sunset was amazing. The food was superb and the chef discussed the menu with the guests before he cooked dinner and was happy to adjust the menu to the guests taste. The rooms were incredibly comfortable and cosy even with a fire place in case it is cold in winter. It was a most memorable weekend and we will certainly hope to revisit.
