Just returned feeling relaxed and restored from a wonderful three night stay at De Hoop. Amazing wildlife, beautiful beach, stunning vlei and fynbos and, the absolute feather in their cap, the most attentive staff ever !!

Have had previous visits which were tremendous but although the rest of the visit was good the food presented for R275 a head was unacceptable. Soggy vegetable spring rolls followed by a single crumbed pork chop with sweet potato and veg and a poor dessert disappointed all four of us who stayed last Tuesday

We truly enjoyed our stay at De Hoop. We stayed 3 nights in a lovely cottage in proximity of the main house. There are many activities to do in De Hoop like hiking (I would recommend bike trail 1 for hiking), biking, whale watching and of course the whale trail. I would particulary recommend this place for families with children... More

The title speaks for itself. We travelled extensively, how could you match this. We were sat on the dunes watching three whales strangely line up facing out to sea about only 500m off shore. After around 45 minutes there were four blow spouts and a tiny fluke appeared. Just incredible. The accomodation is located around a large lake and the... More

The beaches were just beautiful and feel almost untouched. We were lucky enough to see whales from off the beach and our kids had plenty of fun playing on the dunes. The cottages have all you need for self catering and the restaurant serves great food. A stunning place to visit.
