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 spend a week at the Radisson Blu during a long vacation to Africa. After spending time in the bush, the hotel was a welcomed treat. I splurged and chose the Oceanview room. It was amazing to wake up and see the ocean everyday. I even spotted dolphins some mornings. The location is near the V&A Waterfront and is an easy 10 min walk or the hotel offers free shuttle service to and from. On Saturdays, there is a s small outdoor market called Oranjezicht City Farm just next to the hotel. It has several stands selling produce, household items, and many food stands. I highly recommend checking it out. I filled my hungry self with samosas, sandwiches, pastries, and coffee. The hotel has a small infinity pool and outdoor area. There is service poolside so you can order drinks and food. I also checked out the spa. Mandy was my esthetician and did a wonderful job rescuing my travel worn skin. The staff is also amazing and go the extra mile to offer great service. They great you a the door and always bring a smile to make your day brighter. Read less

On the first day, we checked in and the shower was leaking, the sheets were torn and the winter blanket was not washed it had stains. The manager got this sorted but without an apology or compensation. This is definitely not 5 star standards!!! The breakfast was average

Overall great stay here, it was my second visit. The room was a junior suite and was fitted out very well with a comfortable large bed, mini-bar, large bathroom with bath and seperate shower, towels were my preferred thickness and comfort. The room was large with great space to lounge or desk space to work. International sockets were a plus. The balcony with sun loungers was large with wonderful views although as a business guest I did not get to enjoy it! Hopefully next time!! Highly recommended for business or pleasure. parking is safe and secure as is the hotel. Read less
