Facilities were excellent and Two Shrimps restaurant really good value for money.

We spent one night here prior to flying to Cape Town. We should have budgeted more time and spent two nights. As usual in South Africa a most warm welcome on arrival.

We were booked here as the last leg in a 3 week tour for a couple of nights before flying home. Safe to say this stay wasn't a highlight but Canelands had some tough competition.

Canelands offers stunning sea views and a beautiful ocean edge pool. The restaurants food is well presented and tasty, but very pricey if you are not from overseas.

Dear Guest Thanks so much for your constructive critism. It defintely helps us grow as a Boutique hotel directly on the beach.

Canelands Beach Club and Spa is optimally located to allow guests with a sea view room an uninterrupted view of the Indian Ocean and very pleasant walks or runs along an unspoilt beach. Canelands’ restaurant (“Two Shrimps”) is phenomenal, offering a wide-ranging and excellent menu in a celebratory ambience. But, sadly, the room-services division is run in an appalling manner...

Dear Guest I am appalled at all these comments and I feel like laying a criminal charge for defamation of character as you do not know me or my staff.
