My husband and I have twin daughters that are 5 years old and if you are a parent you can picture the day to day routine that goes along with that!

When we checked into Tintswalo Atlantic in Hout Bay we were astounded by the location and sheer beauty of this place! It is the only oceanfront resort along the foot of the world famous Chapman's peak drive and is nestled within the Table Mountain national park. The entire resort faces this incredible view in the front and the view of...

We spent one night at Tintswalo, and were blown away. A situation that is simply spectacular, comfortable rooms, and service of the highest standard. Anybody visiting Cape Town should spend at least a couple of nights here, for a memorable experience. Ryno, the manager, shows what good management is all about. He exudes passion, and is constantly keeping a watchful...

We just had the pleasure of two nights at Tintswalo! Having wanted to visit this beautiful hideaway on the Atlantic shore (any closer and you would need a boat) for years, we were certainly not disappointed! The site, the staff, the rooms, the food, the service were all superb! When asked if we were celebrating anything special on our weekend,...

We finished the last 2 nights of our holiday at Atlantic. Our intention was to totally chill and relax and this we certainly did. The property itself is stunning in every way. It is tucked away off the beaten track off Chapman's Peak. Once you arrive you will leave your car and be driven down the steep hill to paradise....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perched above a pebbled beach at the foot of Chapman's Peak, and overlooking the Cape's iconic Sentinel mountain, Tintswalo Atlantic sits sheltered by the Table Mountain National Park. As the only hotel permitted to operate within the boundaries of the word-renowned Heritage site, the lodge enjoys the very best of magnificent, panoramic ocean views, as well as access to the natural beauty found along the mountainside's winding hiking trails. With ten beautifully appointed suites and one regal presidential suite - all of which have been freshly re-furbished from floor to ceiling - Tintswalo Atlantic offers the luxuries of a world-class hotel, with personalized service and attention to detail. Managed by a host of dedicated staff, Tintswalo Atlantic offers guests nothing less than true Tintswalo hospitality, from the moment that they arrive at this seaside paradise. Enjoy sundowners on the deck beside the heated pool and share cooking tips with the charming Executive Chef, venture out to the quaint Hout Bay village, or take a drive to the nearby Cape Winelands for an unforgettable wine-tasting adventure. Located just a short, scenic drive from the vibrant city of Cape Town, guests can also embark on a suburban adventure into the heart of one of South Africa's most exciting and eclectic cultures. Having been described as the most dramatic and romantic destination in Southern Africa, Tintswalo Atlantic promises to remain an idyllic location to rejuvenate oneself, away from the stresses and distractions of modern living. ... more   less
