We love the location of this hotel, but the service was more uneven than we remembered it from our stay two years ago. The maid who serviced our room managed to throw away a contact lens case and a sock. She also picked up our dirty laundry off the floor and put it in one of our suitcases. (Housekeeping had...

Location is ideal, being only 400 yards or so from the V&A waterfront and with Table Mountain as the backdrop .The hotel is modern and vibrant.

Set in one of the most special environments in the Cape, Isola at One&Only is far and away one of my favorite summer time lunch venues. The service is beyond excellent, ditto the food and the ambience.

Over priced. Bad food. Non-existent entertainment and programming. Nice staff. Nice rooms and a boat ride that costs $300 each way to get to and from the island. There are many better places in this world that provide an honorable value proposition than this disaster.

This is the second time we have stayed here after staying here for 10 days three years ago, we booked in the Island Suites because we like being close to the outdoor pool and these rooms offer twin queen sized beds which suits us as a family of two adults and and a teenage child. The rooms are exceptionally large,...

This was my first time staying at the One&Only Cape Town and it did not disappoint. It was great location, staff were exceptional and the view of table mountain from our room was amazing. The pool is excellent also. Can't wait to come back!
