We arrived back in Cape Town after a 5000km drive from RSA through Namibia and 19 days of travelling. What a wonderful spot to spend the last 2 nights of our holiday. The MannaBay hotel - is outstanding, brilliantly decorated and welcoming. Every room in a different style. We had a very comfortable room and bed, we looked out over...

We travelled to Africa the first time and MannaBay is the first hotel over our trip. After 13 hours flight we finally reached to the hotel around noon time. The staff welcomes us with the nicest smile and the check in is hassle-free and fast as they just hand out simple document and we are in our room in 5...

Hard to find sufficient superlatives for this place, and we have stayed at so many good places in Cape Town. The location is one of the best if you want to be near the mountain or town. Its quiet and with sweeping views of the mountain - the cable car line passes overhead not far from Manna Bay - and...

After two weeks of exploring the wonderful ness that South Africa has to offer, we arrived at Mannabay. It is clearly evident that they know how things should be done here, with attentive but not obtrusive service. Outstanding breakfasts and afternoon tea, flowing drinks and a million books to sit by the pool and read if you so wish. Anything...

Great value for money! The excellent staff and service simply just add to an overall amazing experience. Came here for high tea and even though we were not guests staying the night, we were treated as if we were back home. Would definitely recommend Mannabay. Thank you, will visit again soon!

As a frequent traveler, I would not hesitate to say that MannaBay was the single best hotel experience that I have ever had. In terms of the level of service, the Four Seasons, Ritz-Carltons and Peninsulas of the world have some catching up to do. No nickel and diming here, MannaBay is basically an all-inclusive property. The quality (and quantity)...
