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 loved the hotel which was situated along the waterfront! The view was spectacular, the suite spacious and comfortable and the staff friendly with exceptional customer service. The first afternoon we saw a huge pod of dolphins from our hotel balcony which was very special. Every night the lounge offered complimentary cheese and wine with entertainment. The one evening a very talented singer and pianist duo treated us to beautiful evening of music entertainment. We also took advantage of the free shuttle to the main shopping centre. I was also impressed with the surprise birthday gift of champagne, cake and lovely card. I highly recommend this hotel - you will not be disappointed! Read less

Stayed in the premium room with ocean view balcony. The staff on the door, security and shuttle drivers were wonderful; kind, helpful and funny but the room was a disappointment - broken shower door (fixed once reported), wobbly tap and blocked sink.

Stayed in the premium room with ocean view balcony. The staff on the door, security and shuttle drivers were wonderful; kind, helpful and funny but the room was a disappointment - broken shower door (fixed once reported), wobbly tap and blocked sink. Glasses and water not replaced two nights in a row (resolved once reported) and breakfast order despite being more or less the same for 4 days in a row, was different everyday culminating in it being completely wrong on the final day. Annoying that we asked for a late check out from the day of arrival only to be told the night before that one wasn't available. They gave us a standard room to relax in before we left but it's not the same as being able to check out late from your own room. Implied that as it was complimentary, we should be grateful but we were willing to pay for late check out! Food was good and the restaurant/bar staff were fantastic. Read less
