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. Primely located a mere 50 meters from the silky sands of the famous Camps Bay beachfront with its trendy restaurants and bars. POD Camps Bay offers a luxurious 5 star boutique hotel experience. 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.

My partner & I were so impressed with the hotel. From the cleanliness, to the amazing breakfast and well stocked bar! lol . Excellent location, super romantic we had a view of the ocean from our room and could walk down the famous Camps Bay street. The staff made our stay even more incredible, so warm & friendly wanting to help in whichever way they could. The hotel is world-class and we will be staying there again.

Perfect in just about every way... I would be remiss if I didn't start my review by saying that I have never stayed at a hotel that the staff treated us like family and so incredibly well. They did everything they could to attend to our needs, treat us like king and queen, and make sure we were comfortable. The front desk knew us by name and the other staff (bartender, doorman, etc.) were just outstanding. I would stay here again solely because of the staff. Two examples - it was my birthday during our stay and they surprised me with a cake in the room and also provided a bottle of champagne. Location wise, you are a block from the beach and most of the rooms have at least partial ocean views. The lobby and bar/pool area also have mostly full ocean views. Nearby, you can walk to coffee, bars, banks, and a grocery store. (all within 10 minutes walking). If you want to be in Camp's Bay, the location is basically perfect since you are close to everything, but not in everything. The room we rented was on the first floor with a plunge pool. The shower was great, the toilet was separate, and the room was spacious. The bed was comfy (king size), minibar stocked and included in your stay, had a separate sitting area inside, and then the outdoor patio had two large loungers and a bench with covering where you could lay. The pool was perfect to relax and sip a drink. Was it "small", yes, but it was perfect for two people relaxing. Breakfast is included and made to order. It was quite good. Additionally, they have a wide selection of movies and they will pop you popcorn so you can have a movie and popcorn afternoon or night! (Or morning I guess :) ) Finally, they have a generator so you are not impacted by the occasional rolling blackouts. The only single negative was that the air con was not working during our stay, which was the only negative. They did get us a fan and made the situation right. Because they handled it so well they still get a five star in my eyes. Thank you Pod for a great stay on our honeymoon.

If you get the chance to stay here, you must!! The staff is what make this hotel so special. They go above and beyond and every little detail of your stay is taken care of. Even when we had moved into our next location in South Africa they were able to help arrange COVID tests for us.
