My wife and I spent four nights in the Sunrise Executive Suite. The suite, with its dressing area and five star bath room, complete with 180 degree views, was superb. We had two loungers outside the bedroom front door, next to the rim (infinity) pool that divided the top deck in half. The views of the bay probably cannot be...

Since my fiancé and I had our items stolen out of our room, we have not heard a word from the management or the owner of the place. Our items were over R30 000 that were stolen from our looked room and there was no forced entry into our room. It's highly unprofessional of the establishment and of the owners...

The views from the hotel are spectacular!!!!! Especially from the main building/lounge/Pool area. WOW!!! We stayed in one of the lower level rooms accessed from outside and down the hill. We did have a decent view from our room, but it would have been better if we stayed one floor higher. Be sure to book one of those rooms if...

Our room catered for all our needs. It had an amazing view over False Bay. The management and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We look forward to going back with the whole family. This exquisite B&B can be recommended to very demanding travellers.

Aqua Terra has a nice location with great views. We checked in at 3 PM and there we no sun on the deck anymore and the pool was very cold. However, Boulders beach is very close and we enjoyed the sun, sea and pinguins! The only downside is the location of the sun... Morning is very hot so they close...

So sorry, unfortunately there is not much we can do about the sun, but hope otherwise that you enjoyed your stay with us. In the mornings the sun shines into the dining area and most of our guests find it unpleasant as there is also a glare from the sea. That is the reason why we partially close the blinds.
