“The perfect breakaway”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

This beautiful place is where any couple can relax and enjoy the seabreeze, the sound of the breaking waves and enjoy the hilltop view over the ocean. Receive excellent hospitality. Worth every cent spent.

We have stayed at Beachcomber Bay on a number of occasions, and will keep returning. We will also recommend the place to other friends and family. It is wonderful, comfortable accomodation where you are made to feel at home, and treated like "family". Staff are friendly and helpful.
Sharon and Trevor are welcoming and go out of their way to welcome us back each and every time. They are also very knowledgeable of the surrounding areas/suburbs so are able to recommend things to do, places to visit, restaurants to eat at, etc. which is very useful and helpful for new visitors.

This was our 7th or 8th visit and we again had the penthouse suite which has a wonderful view from its balcony along the coast, and has a lovely cool bedroom with a large conservatory/ living room, and a bathroom with his and hers sinks and a bath and shower. Sharon and Trevor are great hosts and happy to arrange or advise on any excursions - this year my husband tried the longest zip-wire in Africa! Their staff are very diligent, pleasant and welcoming, too! Full breakfasts set one up for the day and are cooked exactly as requested. Two very friendly dogs make you feel 'at home' and the parrot provides entertainment! Private access to the beach from the garden is an added bonus as is the large pool, Jacuzzi and sauna. We highly recommend staying there.

The location was nice, the room also clean.
From the hotel you have a great view of the ocean and you can walk straight to it from the hotel.
In Margate itself is not much to do. But for a stopover it was good.
