Radisson Blu Waterfront

Cape Town, South Africa

The hotel

A luxury 5-star hotel in the heart of Cape Town, the Radisson Blu combines sumptuous accommodation with stunning ocean views. Iconic attractions are just a short distance away, including the very lively waterfront with its endless entertainment options, boutique shops and popular restaurants. When you’re not sightseeing, grab a drink from the bar, head to the terrace and enjoy those views. There’s also a stunning rim-flowed swimming pool to splash about in and the world-class Amani Spa for a spot of pampering. Tobago’s Restaurant is just steps from the sea and serves a variety of gourmet dishes accompanied by delicious South African wine (of course!). Before dinner, a cocktail by the pool watching the sun set is ideal. Water sports, hiking and paragliding are all available close by or simply kick back and enjoy that unique South African vibe.

I feel privileged to stay at this hotel. Yes. A few small issues here and there but it could not take away from the overall experience. Great fine dining at the restaurant and such great rooms. My second time here. Can’t wait to be back.

I loved my stay at Radisson Blu, the stuff were so helpful and hospitable. the room was so clean and neat.. if you go out for a bit someone always comes to check if everything is ok and leave some midnight snacks on the pillow and a goodnight message. I will definitely call again

This hotel has a wonderful location on the front of Cape Town with a pool projecting into the sea. It puts you close to nature and backs on to Granger bay harbor on one side.

Staff are very friendly and assist you where they can. The gym is great and has good equipment. The SPA is well priced and the treatments very professionally done. Breakfast buffet is very adequate with a Virgin Mary bar which is a nice touch. Our room 117 had a great view. Was very large and I really enjoyed staying there. Please look at the pastries at breakfast and the fruit salad. Both not fresh enough . Sometimes the wait for service is too long. Read less

Even though we had young children with us, it was an easy place to be – offering a long breakwater where it was possible to let the children run and let off steam. The service was charming. Read less
