“The Best Ever”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Atlantic is something special, The personal touch and out of this world food make for an extremely pleasant stay. We started unwinding the minute we stood on our Balcony overlooking Hout Bay and a meter or two from the waters edge.UNBELIEVABLE!

Room Tip: we used Antigwa room and it was really nice. Pretty close to the swimming pool

Although the photos of Tintswalo are great, nothing can prepare you for the feeling this place gives you. The location is unbelievable, the facilities and extensive decked areas amazing, fantastic food and service and the best part is that it all happens unpretentiously in the back ground allowing you ample space for a deep relax. Caution though, you may be spoilt for life and I don't think that I will ever stay anywhere else when visiting Cape Town !

Titswalo was the best possible choice for a romantic night’s stay , we celebrated our anniversary and were absolutely blown away by the beautiful accommodation and excellent service.
The staff were so friendly and attentive and we enjoyed a wonderful tea on our room balcony , the sweet and savoury treats were delicious, we then had cocktails around the pool overlooking the amazing private beach.
that night we enjoyed sun downers on the deck overlooking the whole of hout bay and had a four course meal in the restaurant , I can honestly say the food was so wonderful the next day we had the complimentary breakfast and were again blown away it’s the service and choices
I would thoroughly recommend staying here it is such a romantic destination for couples and also a wonderful hotel for guests from overseas as it is still central but so private and the views are incredible.

We knew we were going to experience something special the minute we stepped into Tintswalo Atlantic. Being in a reserve right on the shore gives the most amazing 360 views. The rooms are luxury but not pretentious. The food is delicious. The setting is breathtaking. The staff are discreet but ever present, courteous, helpful and smiling - led by the example of Ryno and Melissa. We could not find one critisism. This team understand how to make your stay special. I can't wait to go back!

Tintswalo Atlantic, located on the second bend after the Chapman’s Peak toll gate on the Hout Bay side, overlooking the whole of Hout Bay and Sentinel peak. One will have to search far and wide to find a more stunning location or a more exquisite lodge! Great for lunch, better to stay over and best to stay longer.

Room Tip: All the rooms have stunning views, further away form the main building is a bit more private.

What a magic place to spend a few nights at! We were so impressed with amount of effort Tintswalo go to, to make you feel special. The rooms are all sensational and private, with spectacular views across the water to Hout Bay. Fabulous place to relax and unwind. We have done alot of travelling but this is the BEST breakfast we have ever had!
And a heated pool - how delightful was that?! Thank so much Pierre for looking after us! You are doing an excellent job, an extremely high standard resort in all areas. Thank you so much for a memorable stay - albeit to short!

Room Tip: Every room is sensational with a different 'island theme'. Fantastic!
