We spent 3 night at Sea Star Lodge and enjoyed it very much, although we could not do what we were coming for. The ocean did not allow us to go shark cage diving. Instead we went on a Quad tour through the vineyards, which gave us a fantastic view from the top of the mountain. Also recommended: a walk along the cliffs and the beach towards Hermanus.
Sea Star Lodge is a very warm, friendly place with very nice and extremely helpful people. Very relaxed atmosphere. You can have a nice chat with the owner or other guests at the breakfast table as well as privacy in your own - nicely designed - room with amarvellous view! Luvt it.
There are two absolutely charming dogs around (even if you do not like dogs you will probably like those two).
There is not much to do in Gansbaai itself but the area is great and if you need an accommodation to go for various activities in the area (sharks, whal watchung, wine testing...) then the Lodge is definitely a great place to stay. We will come back.
