We started our holiday here and was sad to leave to continue our trip. We could easily have stayed here for the duration of the holiday. The location is perfect and the staff are so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.

We started our South Africa trip by spending 5 nights here. We were traveling with our 2 teens and another family also with 2 teens, so our group was in 4 rooms. We LOVED MannaBay! Everything was exceptional. Fabulous views of the city, delicious food (breakfast and high tea), amazing service, cool décor. Every employee bent over backwards to make... More

We stayed on Cape Town for about six days and booked Mannabay. I honestly can say it as perfection from start to finish. It was like staying at a friends home. The whole house has been converted to an 8 room place to stay. Someone cooks you breakfast in the morning and a butler is there 24 hours a day.... More

This was our first trip to South Africa and I have to say that we were concerned about our safety based on some of the stuff we found on the web. David and his crew were the ones that put together our entire trip (except for one night that we did on our own) and we are not sure if... More

MannaBay was the first stop on our honeymoon and none of the 3 other hotels we stayed at during the rest of our trip were able to compare. I remarked this morning that I missed MannaBay (specifically the amazing breakfast) as we were preparing to go about our day, and my husband replied that we will probably always miss MannaBay...

We loved our stay here! Everyone was friendly --- making sure our stay was comfortable and pleasant! The breakfast was delicious. Afternoon tea was amazing as well. When we were out and about exploring the city, we made a request to have a platter saved for us when we missed afternoon tea! Very generous and kind of the hotel staff.... More

MannaBay is hands down the best hotel experience we've EVER had. My husband & I were here for our honeymoon and couldn't pick our jaws off the floor.

After all the amazing reviews of this hotel on TA, I have to admit to being slightly disappointed with our visit over this past weekend.

I highly recommend this luxury hotel for couples who are trying to make their stay in Cape Town special. We visited MannaBay for our honeymoon and had the opportunity to stay in the lovely Orchid Room. The hotel itself is beautiful with modern and eclectic art and the view of Table Mountain from our private deck was amazing. The food... More
