If you are looking for an unspoiled ocean getaway, it doesn’t get better than the exclusive new Strandloper Ocean.

Each has its own terrace or courtyard, some with small splash pools, and wide doors that open out onto breathtaking views of sky, sand, sea and space.Take the time to simply be, or if you are feeling more adventurous, set off on an endless beach walk in search of whales and dolphins, hop onto a bicycle for a leisurely ride or take to the waves on a kayak.Paternoster is a seafood and lobster Mecca, a gourmet destination for travelers in search of the ultimate meal. Inspired cuisine with a local and organic slant is created daily at the Ocean Lounge, which also serves up breathtaking views of the surroundings.A romantic venue for couples, honeymooners or anyone looking for some special me-time, the Strandloper Ocean offers the best of West Coast hospitality and fuss-free luxury.

If you stay at one of the Ocean view suites, as we did, you’ll have a marvelous view ocean front, you will have the sound of the ocean and it is beautiful. Have in mind that this is a very quiet “town”, it literally falls a sleep at 10 pm. At the “ocean view suite” however you

Response from Abraham M, General Manager at Strandloper Ocean Boutique Hotel
Responded 2 days ago
Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. I am very happy to hear that you have enjoyed our location, our spectacular views and am delighted that you recognized our high level of service. I am surprised to read of your perception that nothing was included in your room rate. All our rates include breakfast, secure parking, free WiFi, welcome bubbly or alternative welcome drinks, welcome platter (Suites only), Nespresso machine with unlimited Nespresso capsules, selection of teas, daily homemade cookies, turn down water and turn down sweets , free bicycle rental and complimentary chauffeur service to our local restaurants. Thank you for your feedback that we should add wine in our mini bar. I am happy to inform you that we will introduce this new offering from next season onwards. Your Suite is indeed located closest to the restaurant and one of the reasons why our bar closes at 22 o’clock is to make sure there is absolutely no noise disturbance for any of our Suites during the night. We only offer closed toilets being separated from the rest of the bathroom which is an important feature in our hotel and valid for all Suites. The toilet window leads to an open courtyard which separates the buildings of the restaurant and the Suite to make sure the Suite has all the privacy needed. The particular Suite is a very popular Suite and we did not have any negative feedback so far. I am very sorry that our Suite was not to your liking and I wish you would have expressed your concern during your stay as my team and I would have tried our utmost to find an alternative for you which would have hopefully met your expectations. It was a great pleasure having you as our guests. We wish you safe and enjoyable travels. Warm regards from Paternoster, Abraham and the Strandloper Ocean team

We loved this hotel. We occupied a room with an internal courtyard and despite the lack of a sea view found it spacious, stylish and charming. The staff are lovely. We would make a special call out to the ladies in the Leeto restaurant - Nosi and Bongi were exceptional. We loved

I wasn't even aware of a presidential suite. We stayed in one of the Ocean suites. Highly recommendable. Stunning view and privacy. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Unfortunately we stayed in the winter time, so we couldn't really make use of the outdoor seating area, but it appealed to us. Plus the chef at the restaurant is truly recommendable. our suite had a loft area upstairs, but the view downstairs was more than we could ask for. Have a wonderful stay.
