One of kind. A truly remarkable hotel

It is the best hotel We have ever stayed at. Lamla and patrick were amazing. We had an amazing honeymoon. We will definitely be back!

Really nothing!! The only thing that would be amazing if there was a luggage scale but apart from that honestly nothing

amazing location with a lovely boutique feel

Magical one night getaway which will live long in the memory

The hotel is amazing, rooms are individually decorated in different Island themes. We stayed in Ithaca which is blue and white and has a Greek Island feel. The room is right on the water and its great going to sleep with the sound of the ocean. There is a small but adequate pool with nice chairs and a comfortable bed. All the staff were friendly and went out of their way to make our stay great.

The price is high and it's not that easy to leave once you are there. It's the perfect place for a few days stay but if you want to get out and see Cape Town it's probably not ideal although there are shuttles which can take you around if needed.

We had the most amazing stay! I honestly cannot speak highly enough about this hotel. The staff was so helpful and welcoming, the facility is beautiful and blends perfectly with the scenery and the view is UNBELIEVABLE. It is a bit of a splurge, but so worth it.

Mix up with out room type, but at least the second night was great.

Location and views are unsurpassed.

They checked us into a normal room with two extra beds for the kids while we had booked a two bedroom suite. The next morning there was a feeble apology along with a question along the lines of “would you like to see the other room, then you can decide if you’d like to move”. The suite was more than 3 times the size of the first room and obviously a lot more comfortable for 4 guests. No offer of a discount or voucher was mentioned. At checkout I asked what would be done, they responded by saying my wife’s spa treatment was complimentary.

Best place I’ve stayed at in the world!

Everything about Tinstwalo Atlantic was spectacular! The location was fantastic, breathtaking views! The room exceeded my expectations. The food was out of this world and the facilities such as the guest lounge and pool deck were amazing. The staff were probably the best part about Tinstwalo and they were incredibly attentive and helpful, every need was catered for to the highest extent!

There was nothing to not like about Tinstwalo Atlantic.

Beautiful outlook with comfort, sunsets, wonderful people and amazing food

It’s location, the food, the people.

Location wonderful but slightly too far from Cape Town for our needs. The drive was very repetitive.


26 July 2022


The excellent service given. Constant communication and feedback given to ensure all I wanted was addressed. The friendliest of service with attention to detail. Truly enjoyed my stay


18 July 2022


This was an incredible experience. The most beautiful location, friendly and attentive staff and delicious food. An absolute spoil!! I will be back for sure.

The cost is expensive in summer - perhaps local rates could be offered to South Africans / Capetownians. Only so I can return more often :) Otherwise, I simply cannot fault it. It is sensational in every aspect.


14 July 2022

This is a wonderful experience and worthwhile for anyone wanting to live right on the Ocean.

The omelettes for breakfast lacked a little flavour and texture. Rooms and staff are amazing and the restaurant was great. We would have liked to have stayed longer to add more to our experience but will return.

Perhaps a little more wood (for fireplace) in the rooms over the winter period.


27 June 2022


Modernisation would be great


17 June 2022

8 April 2022


Everything I was experiencing the worst yet they made me feel like I am not alone.



7 March 2022


Breathtaking location and the staff was amazing and made us and the kids feel very welcome and cared for! Also the food was very good, and the rooms are designed to make you forget there's a real world outside this paradise. We'll be back!

Everything was perfect! The only thing to mention is that the location is quite remote, with a 'beach' that's very small and only there at low tide - if you're expecting to take long walks at the seaside this is not your place, but trust me you won't care :)


3 March 2022


The most beautiful of EVERYTHING!! I loved the stay :)
