Great contempory place to stay in Wonderful Camps Bay- just off the front but with mainly sea views- chose your room wisely- we had 105 which wasn't a premium rate room but had a sea view. I really wouldn't pay the huge extra for the ground floor with their own plunge pool- the pools are not heated and they are really overlooked- no privacy.
Staff here are the main plus point- passionate and well trained (Nick u were great) Let them book your restaurants- we got the best tables in every place they booked for us!! Loved the complimentary mini bar- a great idea.
Room design was uber stylish - maybe the designer could have tried staying in one for a week- they might have moved mirror closer to the sink for boys to shave and created some suitcase storage- pain for longer stay guests like us with two big cases. But these are really minor.
Breakfasts were lovely- more tables outside would work but it was very windy- loved the juice of the day. Service was a little laid back a couple of days but hey- we were in no rush. If you are going to the beach or on a day trip get the beach bag- so cool!
Camps bay was amazing- everywhere we ate was seriously good- Café Caprice for cocktails and burgers was awesome. Panegra for more serious food, Raj for a curry.
Only one major gripe- the pool was seriously not pleasant - far too cold- get some heating in there. The pool deck is too cool not to use!!!!
Finally value- well it aint cheap by SA standards - but it is by European prices- this place is a real bargain for the level of style and service.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Cool beyond question is POD Camps Bay. A true Africa original realised in a stunning set of decor elements, POD is both raw yet polished. See naked Africa design timber dropping into stone, shifting into glass, imbuing a sense of seaside sophistication so often attempted but so rarely achieved. 17 modern suites and rooms share the spoils of idyllic mountain and ocean views. Truly surprising is POD's proximity to the famous and ever energised Camps Bay beachfront, just a few light footsteps away. It is little wonder that POD appears on the Condé Nast Hot List 2011, and finds its place among Tatler's 101 Best Hotels in the World. ... more less
