We got in very late and only stayed for one night, so unfortunately we did not get to make the most of this cute place, but from what we experienced it was perfect. We had an ocean view family suite, it was clean and comfortable. The service we received was great and we even got late check out which was...

This was my third stay at this guesthouse and I would come here many more times, I absolutely love it! It literary is "on the beach", with spectacular views of the ocean. The rooms are stunning (except for the downstairs non-sea facing standard rooms, they're not too great), the staff super friendly, and the breakfast scrumptious! I love it so...

Although Jeffreys Bay is one of our favourite getaway destinations, this was our first visit to On the Beach. What a wonderful discovery! From luxurious comfort, to excellent service, exquisite breakfasts and breathtaking views, we lacked for nothing. They stayed true to their intention of wanting guests to feel at home. Nothing was too much trouble.

Close to the beach, with great service, friendly staff, and good food (breakdast). We, four friends sharing two twin rooms, had a great stay. Although the town is rather dull if you don't surf, the On the beach guest house is a gem!

Ok, so yes, this is a business trip, the travel agency was requested to warn me that I would have no ocean view etc. Incidentally I had a sea view and it takes me 2 minutes to be on the beach, BUT 4 star luxury does not mean an ocean view. It means comfort and service delivery. It does not...

Stayed here for our last night in South Africa. What an absolute delight! Fabulous views , gorgeous room with panoramic views of the beach. The facilities are so well thought out I cannot praise them enough- a travellers dream-plenty of accessible sockets, good 'products' for that last morning shower before flying home, comfortable bed with wonderful linen.

Our room faced on to the ocean and I could watch the waves crash on the beach lying on the bed. Even on the rainy morning, that was just bliss. Breakfast was indulgent, the staff was friendly and attentive, and we'd definitely go back if we had reason to be in town.

Fantastic views and a great room. Would stay longer next time. Having a honesty bar was also a nice touch and very handy when you want to enjoy a bottle of wine with the panoramic windows open watching and listening to the sea.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
On The Beach Boutique Guesthouse and Suites in Jeffreys Bay offers a relaxed and refined atmosphere in which to enjoy the spectacular setting right on the beach. The classic design, elegant décor and harmonious ambience, combined with incredible views from most rooms, as well as the upstairs lounge, bar and outdoor verandahs, relaxes and rejuvenates and is ideal for business, pleasure - or both. We offer free use of our beach chairs, -umbrellas and -towels to our guests. Experience the magic of a sundowner barbeque right on the edge of the beach ... Braai/barbecue facilities and picnic tables are available in front of the guesthouse, either on the front lawn in the sculpted, indiginous garden leading down to the beach or on the sand lower down - obviously all with great views! The braai room is fully equipped with Weber braai's, tongs, cutlery, crockery and glasses to be used on wooden picnic tables outside. Perfectly located just 50 minutes from the Port Elizabeth International Airport. The accommodation features a Penthouse Room, 2 Deluxe Rooms, 2 Superior Rooms, a Luxury Room, a Standard Room and 2 Two-bedroom Suites. Most Units have direct beach access and breathtaking beach and ocean views. Reveling in the splendor of its location, the upstairs lounges, bar, dining area and balcony is a celebration of the magnificent backdrop of the Indian Ocean which makes for a picture perfect setting. The soothing sound of the rolling waves soon becomes a constant reminder of exactly where one has come to unwind and rejuvenate. Watch dolphins and surfers share the same waves and experience luxury in harmony with nature. Allow us to share our warm hospitality and world class service. ... more   less
