“Best kept secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2012

We knew we were going to experience something special the minute we stepped into Tintswalo Atlantic. Being in a reserve right on the shore gives the most amazing 360 views. The rooms are luxury but not pretentious. The food is delicious. The setting is breathtaking. The staff are discreet but ever present, courteous, helpful and smiling - led by the example of Ryno and Melissa. We could not find one critisism. This team understand how to make your stay special. I can't wait to go back!

Tintswalo Atlantic, located on the second bend after the Chapman’s Peak toll gate on the Hout Bay side, overlooking the whole of Hout Bay and Sentinel peak. One will have to search far and wide to find a more stunning location or a more exquisite lodge! Great for lunch, better to stay over and best to stay longer.

Room Tip: All the rooms have stunning views, further away form the main building is a bit more private.

What a magic place to spend a few nights at! We were so impressed with amount of effort Tintswalo go to, to make you feel special. The rooms are all sensational and private, with spectacular views across the water to Hout Bay. Fabulous place to relax and unwind. We have done alot of travelling but this is the BEST breakfast we have ever had!
And a heated pool - how delightful was that?! Thank so much Pierre for looking after us! You are doing an excellent job, an extremely high standard resort in all areas. Thank you so much for a memorable stay - albeit to short!

Room Tip: Every room is sensational with a different 'island theme'. Fantastic!

We were privileged to share in a wonderful birthday celebration at Tintswalo Atlantic. What a breathtaking, stunning place. The accommodation is beautifully appointed and is set right at sea level with breathtaking views. This place is pretty much faultless. The management and staff are there to make your stay as comfortable as possible and it appears that nothing is too much trouble for them. The very attentive but unobtrusive service was always given swiftly and with a smile. A very unpretentious but beautiful place. As if that isn't enough the food is thoughtfully presented and is sublime. This is a gem and,looking at all the other reviews, it is being justly rewarded for setting a standard a few other establishments would do well to learn from!

Room Tip: They are all different and equally stunning.

With the most special view in Cape Town (In my opinion) Tintswalo Atlantic was a fantastic getaway. The food was out of this world and the staff was friendly and really helpful. The rooms is almost ontop of the water and private. Ryno and Michelle, thank you for an absolutely unforgettable weekend.

Room Tip: "Robbin Island" Room is a real treat

Our visit at Tintswalo Atlantic exceeded our expectations - everything was excellent, from the welcome, to the suites, to the service, to the food and drinks, to the breath-taking scenery right on the waters edge...a true delight in every way! A big thank you to Memory who preparred our dinner last night and to Ryno and Melissa who made our stay a memorable one. PS: the new pool deck is absolutely amazing - the best sun-bathing views in Cape Town!

Room Tip: We stayed in both the Sicily and the Robben Island Suites - both were exquisite!

This lodge is just amazing. Thank you to Ryna, Melissa, Pierre and the rest of the staff who really went out of their way to make our stay as wonderful as possible. Nothing was to much for them. We will be back and I hope that it will be soon.
