“Spectacular & Special”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

From arrival to departure we were treated like royalty. This lodge is built into the beauty of nature, with unsurpassed views from every room. What a treat to relax and unwind whilst listening to the crash of the waves. Indulge in the fantastic menu and wine list, with friendly staff to take care of your every wim, going out of their way to make your stay comfortable and very special. Pure escapism! We will definitely be back for more.

Room Tip: there are no bad rooms

This lodge down on the water on the way up Chapmans peak overlooks Hout Bay.

The rooms are super with wonderful views right from your bedroom.

Food was excellent.

This hotel is private, right on the sea with great, relaxed friendly staff and an awesome selection of food. The views and smell of ozone are unique and there is nowhere on earth like this spot in Cape Town

It is the most beautiful place I've ever seen in my life! You have to go there if you like the sound of the sea, delicious food, breathtaking views and a very, very friendly staff. O, I forgot to mention the beautiful rooms with private terrace. Unbelievable. I will do anything to stay there again in the future (almost anything :-) Thanks for this dream experience!

This is something everyone has to experience, words cannot describe how incredibly special this venue is, from the service, to the setting, to the decor - absolutely everything speaks of immaculate taste !! :)

Room Tip: Choose the one with a full view of the sea.

The setting that Tintswalo Atlantic offers is nothing short of spectacular! You may think this is the biggest treat, but throughout your stay you will continue to be constantly impressed by the superb service & friendly staff. Nothing is too much trouble! This is the perfect place to get married, and as a honeymoon overnight I can't imagine you can experience a more romantic spot in Cape Town! Highly, highly recommended!

Room Tip: All the rooms are sensational!

We stayed here in Feb for a weekend break, and can't praise this hotel and staff highly enough. I have stayed in most hotels in Cape Town over the years, this has a stunning location, a bit like the 12 Apostles but without the noisy road in front, and is my new favorite. Peace, tranquility, great service, views, and all a quick drive from the main attractions of the Cape. Thoroughly recommend it.
