We stayed for one night only (as a break from staying with family further inland) and loved it. The staff were so helpful and friendly, the room was stunning (thanks for the upgrade!) the pool and loungers..... We can't wait to return. Thanks for a gorgeous stay xx

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 6 February 2017

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we were made to feel incredibly welcome and the staff couldn't do enough for us. The hotel is very stylish in a great location but the real difference are the small touches, there was even a ready packed beach bag with towels and a bat and ball set in our...

Right on the water, you cant get better than this. Modern and clean, the breakfasts were a highlight and the staff were only too happy to help with anything we asked. Rooms come with their own private pool on the groundfloor. I was sad to leave as it was such a great experience.

Open, smiling and friendly staff for whom no request is a bother. Beautifully designed, uncluttered rooms with tasteful muted colours, comfortable beds and a soundtrack of crashing waves at night. Very peaceful and highly recommended boutique hotel.

My husband and I took a chance and it was worth the gamble! We were on bed and breakfast and the breakfast was great! Various options to select from. Extremely helpful and friendly staff.

My husband and I recently spent 5 nights at the POD hotel. First, the staff were so friendly and very accommodating. Being in Cape Town for the first time we had tons of questions and needed lots of direction. We had previously booked a Cape Peninsula tour prior to arriving but unfortunately the company cancelled on us the night before....

Good to visit, great location and very calm. The cocktails are recommended. Music at nights from 10:00 pm, I think that's it's late if you want to enjoy the night. Another good point it's that the receptionist is very welcome people.

So we visited POD in late July/August in 2016, the staff were so friendly and ready to help, for example we asked them about some nice markets to go to and they were really nice, you get a complementary mini bar with drinks like coke and juice and tasty snacks like dried mangos, nuts, and jellies, the location is great,...

We just returned from 4 nights at POD and we had such a lovely stay. Location in Camps Bay is within close proximity to the beach and lots of wonderful restaurants. Rooms are modern, clean and well equipped (bathrooms are generally open and integrated into the room just as an FYI but this did not bother us). Breakfast is yummy...

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
