“Parking challenge”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

My husband & I stayed for a week with my sister & brother in law at their three compact bedroom & bathroom apartment at Bantry Bay. Sited at the oceans edge where we unexpectedly had our first sighting of whales to cross off my bucket list & in easy walking distance of Camps Bay as well as easily accessible for the Cape Town area which is a wonderland where a visit to Hermanus enabled us to view yet more whales & the flora & fauna were at their most magnificent at the West Coast National Park. Parking was a very challenging task due to numerous issues,height,pillars & general lack of space: on occasion a member of staff would be available to direct in negotiating obstacles.Refurbishment of Penthouse added to difficulty. Location being the greatest asset of this resort.

We recently purchased a week at the resort and this is the first time we have used it and I'm looking forward to many more holidays in bantry bay.

We have a 1st floor 3 bedroom unit and the views are magnificent. Our teenage sons have loved the pool and the location is very close to sea point and camps bay for nightlife and you just have to ask the front desk to arrange taxis but they do have a complimentary bus until 4 pm.

Our week is over tomorrow and we are all very sorry to leave, but knowing that we will be back next year to this fabulous resort for another family holiday makes leaving a little easier

We have been going here for a number of years and I felt that I must share how we enjoy our time here. The staff and housekeeping service is excellent, they even set and light up your braai at your appointed time. The views are magnificent, and the sound of the waves are so relaxing. Once again, thankyou to Sean and his amazing team for a wonderful holiday.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor have easy access to the deck and the swimming pool

We had a pretty good time while staying here. Camps Bay is a 5-10 minute drive down the hill and Sea Point is very close. Staff was always kind and helpful when asked. parking at R40 ($4) a day is ok but there's a chance someone may be in your spot. You'll still have to pay for it if that happens. Parking is VERY limited so email them ahead of time to let them know you have a car. Otherwise it's a 300m walk to the next nearest parking. WiFi is a steal at R30 ($3) a week. Resort was nice and clean and the loft design is nice. Comfy bed with down comforter. Pool is nice with an AMAZING view of Bantry Bay. Head downhill about 1 minute to Clifton #1 for swimming as Bantry Bay has no beach. Make sure you take a jacket. The wind around Camps and Bantry can be BRUTAL.

Our one bedroom duplex had amazing sea views. The apartment was very well appointed albeit a little cramped, the bathroom being on the mezzanine became annoying after a while.
The resort had a shuttle bus from Monday to Friday so the guests checking in on Friday should immediately stock up on the groceries. There are no supermarkets in vicinity.
The front office guys were friendly and accommodating.The apartment was serviced daily at the requested time.
The hotel is a short walk from the stop ( opp President Hotel) for hop on hop off bus.
There is limited parking so it is better to book in advance if you have a car.
The wifi was available at a nominal price of R 30 for a week.

Room Tip: All rooms have full sea view. Avoid duplex rooms,

The place was amazing. One of the best views available in Cape Town is yours to enjoy your whole stay.
What ever down falls you may possibly encounter with your room/ apartment is made up for by the outstanding service and attitude of the staff. Loved our stay.

Stayed here for a weekend - 2nd floor - timeshare point swop.

Very well stocked little kitchen - all extremely clean and everything you need. Comfy little lounge area and balcony overlooking the rocks below and a sea view to die for !!! So great to drift off to sleep in very comfortable bed and hear the sea below you.

It was raining the weekend we were there - Cape Town winters - but still very cosy - would be wonderful in Summer - lovely loungers and braai area around the swimming pool below.

One fault was that the upstairs bedroom was just too hot and stuffy - felt like there was not proper ventilation ? - tried to sleep with the air con on but that was noisy.

Other than that , a delightful place and easy to get to Camps Bay etc for meals.
