The service at this hotel is outstanding as they upgraded our room and gave us a bottle of champagne to celebrate our special occasion. The location is top notch in Camps Bay as you are a block from the beach at not far from the main drag. The inclusive breakfast was delicious and the snacks at the bar are changed hourly. Strongly recommend if your looking to spend a few nights by the beach.

Great friendly service from all staff, no ask is too much for them. Beautiful rooms and clean as hell. Would defo return! I stayed at the Taj Cape Town prior to this and the two do not compare! Memorable and lovely x

We stayed at the POD Camps Bay as the first stop on our honeymoon in October 2018. Though inconspicuous from the street, the second you walk into the POD you are transported to a relaxation zone like no other. This amazing boutique hotel is located just steps from the beaches at Camps Bay, and the views are spectacular. We arrived early in the morning after flying for over 30+ hours, and were greeted with amazing service from the get go. Though our room was not yet ready, the POD staff opened a vacant room for us to take a shower and relax. That is just one way they go above and beyond. Our room was ready quickly, and when we arrived we discovered they had upgraded us. What a treat to start our honeymoon. The rooms are beautiful, unique, and luxurious. The bed was so comfortable, and the additional amenities like the mini bar and champagne they gifted us were wonderful. I also loved the bath products.

The pool area at the POD might be the most relaxing hotel pool I have ever experienced. The loungers are more like outdoor beds, and laying there looking over the beautiful bay with a drink in hand was perfection. The hotel is intimate and quiet, and truthfully feels like a private home. The staff were attentive but not intrusive, and we feel that this was a 5 star experience without being pretentious - which is exactly what we'd hoped for.

The breakfast is also really wonderful - the selection of fruits and cheeses were always interesting, and we enjoyed the eggs we ordered everyday. The staff is SO friendly, remembered us, and took the best care of us. We just loved everyone at the POD. Also - the daily juice was amazing. The hotel also offers a great sundowners experience while you watch the best sunset in all of Cape Town right from the deck of the hotel. That is something to not miss.

The location of this hotel is great. We walked around Camps Bay and enjoyed some great restaurants close by (our favorite was the Codfather) but almost everything we wanted to see was a 10-15 minute uber ride from the hotel.

We cannot recommend this place enough - skip the better known hotels and stay here. You won't regret it!

Dear chlosarschwartz,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a comprehensive and wonderful review about your honeymoon stay with us at POD Camps Bay.

We are incredibly spoiled to be situated in a position that offers such amazing vistas over the Camps Bay beach as well as the 12 Apostles mountain range. The sunsets we experience are truly spectacular and a talking point of all travelers to the area.

Your compliments on our location, rooms, main areas, additional amenities, breakfast and service that you received make all the hard work that goes into this property worth the effort. I am touched that you picked up on all of the little aspects that when combined create our unique product offering.

Wishing you many happy years to come and hopefully we will be able to celebrate one of your future anniversaries with you at POD.

Warm Regards,
Micaela and the POD Team

The service at Pod is exceptional, for me it started months before I even arrived with the team helping me plan and sort dinner reservations out (even outside of Cape Town during a period I wasn't staying with them) and organise an itinerary for me (necessary over Christmas as everything gets very booked). When we arrived it continued with warm, friendly and extremely helpful service every minute we were there. Nothing seems to much for the team. I would particularly like to thank Vaughn, Nick, Tamsin and Claire for everything they did for us and helping make our stay effortless.

In terms of the hotel it is brilliantly located one block in from the beach in Camps Bay, on a corner lot where you get uninterrupted sea views over the beach and amazing sunsets every night. Over public holidays it can be slightly noisy as locals descend on the beach but mainly not an issue and the convenience for walking distance to the shops, restaurants and bars easily makes up for this.

Lots of small touches help make this boutique stand out from the crowd, they have beach bags with towels, mini speaker and sun cream ready for you in your room, the mini bar is fully complimentary and restocked daily with a bottle of wine, beers and soft drinks.

The breakfast each day was very good with fruit, pastry, and eggs cooked to order. The team can also order food in for you from local restaurants and the staff will collect it for you.

Our room was lovely, they are extremely contemporary (as per the whole hotel).

I would highly recommend the hotel and look forward to going back when I can.

The staff is very cordial and helpful. Hotel is small, something I prefer. Fruits for breakfast are great, but cheese and bread could be better. Very nice room, but the one I had towards the street is quite loud. Location is perfect - a few steps to the beach, all restaurants in walking distance.
