When we first arrived we couldn't check in, even though we'd requested an early check-in. It was OK, because our luggage was stored for us whilst we went out for lunch. When we were shown our allocated apartment in an annexe, we were very disappointed. It in no way matched the main site: it was hot and noisy, being above a cafe. There was no aircon and only a fairly ineffectual fan. We slept pretty badly that night, and the problem was the next day was my birthday so instead of taking our time to get ready to go out for lunch, my husband was explaining to the staff how unacceptable the room was. They immediately agreed to move us to the main building - but couldn't do this immediately as there was a power outage. So, we re-packed our bags and headed out. I must say that Marion on the reception desk was a star - she was friendly, helpful and efficient. Totally restored our faith! The ratings below are based on the second apartment, not the first.

This place was located in the heart of Camps Bay. Clean and spacious. We loved it. We will return here for sure. Staff were so helpful and friendly. The maid service was very good. We had wonderful views of the beach from our balconies.
