“Good, clean accommodation”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

We had a mid-week stay at Hermanus Beach Club. On the morning of our check-in, we arrived rather early, having driven there directly from the Airport in Cape Town, and as our unit was already ready, we were allowed to check in! This was at 12:00 midday, and was a definite bonus for us. Being able to get settled and unpack early, allowed us time to do some grocery shopping, etc. We also had plans to get someone from one of the Homes in Hermanus, to spend the few days with us there, and the early check-in just made everything easier (normal check-in time is 16:00). Thanks to a very friendly Receptionist!

We found the resort to be really lovely and quiet, but sadly had only a distant view of the sea, as the privately owned units are in the front two rows with the best sea views. I was also disappointed that there is not really any place to just go and have a walk on the seaside, even though there would be no bathing area. We tried this one day, but you have to clamber over rocks, etc. - not something you could do with elderly people. So we just drove to the beach every day. Hermanus has some beautiful beaches, and I am so glad we discovered Grotto Beach! Long stretches of beautiful, clean beach, and the water was so fantastic (normally cold!), that we could even have a swim! I see that Grotto Beach also offers fantastic beach wheelchairs for use by disabled persons. Wonderful!

We stayed in a 3-bedroomed unit, for 8 persons. We were only 3 ladies and each had our own room. The third bedroom is so small, that one could hardly move around the 2 single beds (which were next to one another and stuck in a corner. I would never let 8 persons share this accommodation! It is not big enough. Two people would have to sleep on the sleeper couch, which is the worst sleeper couch I have ever seen, or tried to sit on. I told the Resort that if it had been my unit, that couch would have been out the door on the first day! Apart from the 4 added chairs, that is all that one has to sit on to watch TV. So, if 8 people stayed, 4 would have to be sitting on the couch!! Another issue for me - there were only 3 bar stools at the breakfast area, and 3 minute chairs on the breakfast table area. Again - catered for 6. The beds and bedding though, were absolutely fantastic. Everything was nice and clean. The towels MUST be replaced. They were white and beautiful many yonks ago! There is a patio with fireplace for a BBQ, but I cannot understand why it has no roof over. The beams are there. It often drizzles, and then this area is useless.

I honestly believe that the main bedroom should also have its own TV. One TV for all is not really standard in a unit of this size.

The shop on site did not seem to offer too much, so we did not really use it. There is also a nice pool, which we did not use.

As regards food, we visited the new pier very close by, and bought the most wonderful fresh fish and chips, and ate this overlooking the sea. The Resort is really very safe and secure, and conveniently situated to get to town and go shopping. However, you cannot do any of this without a vehicle.

Would I stay again? Not sure. The disgusting couch, insufficient patio, and grey towels really irritated me endlessly.

Complex consists of privately owned and timeshare units. The self-catering unit was well equipped and spacious enough although some might find it a bit cramped if the full allocation of 6 people is filled. The complex has all the basic facilities with nothing wonderful. A nice place for some peace and quiet with lovely views. The location was away from the nice beaches and town centre (where all the attractions and eating places are), so we found that a bit of an inconvenience.

Loved the complex. Quiet and good facilities. Stunning sea views. Spacious enough apartment with most of what you need. Furniture in this unit odd & uncomfortable. Wicker chairs with cushions no substitute for couch. Two seater hardly fits two ppl comfortably. Main bed quite small especially if hubby 6ft. Cramped. 3bed 2bath penthouse with wide patio balcony area. Needs better furniture. Price over peak season quite reasonable but wouldn't return unless replaced lounge chairs.
