The hotel's pampering provided the perfect conclusion to a cruise vacation. On staff tour guide Darrol Lee picked us up right at the dock. He proved to be so charming and knowledgeable that we booked him for our entire 3 day stay. He rapidly assessed our interests, and provided a spectacular insider's journey around the Cape area. The front office staff was extremely welcoming. With a smile Chad Bartman offered us a wonderful upgrade. He proved to be attentive throughout our stay. The suite was massive, and featured a long veranda with a view of Lion's Head. The grounds are absolutely stunning with a backdrop of Table Mountain. The food venues are varied and excellent. The elegant old world lounge and conservatory is famous for its afternoon tea. The Planet Bar has a whimsical decor and serves up super cocktails and scrumptious appetizers. The sunny Oasis poolside restaurant is the scene of the unbelievable smorgasbord breakfast and the tasty å la carte lunch. The wait staff was totally attentive. We did not get a chance to experience the popular Planet Restaurant, but I assume it is on a par with the rest of the facilities. I am simply in love with the hotel!
