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.

Rooms are a good size with views of the bay or Table Mountain. The restaurant food was very good and being able to overlook the Ocean whilst eating was a bonus. The breakfast was buffet with and had an excellent choice of hot and cold food. Our evening meal was freshly cooked which meant we had to wait a while but it was certainly worth waiting for. We would certainly recommend it for cleanliness, location and facilities. Read less

Overall the hotel was good but for a 5 star I expected a much larger pool area and definitely not for kids. This is a business hotel but charging tourist rates. Location is good, near to the Waterfront.

Excellent location, very nice and friendly service. For European travellers: keep in mind slower pace in service. Nothing wrong with it, just be aware that you may need 15 minutes to get your coffee in the morning. Take the time and enjoy your stay.

The location is Waterfront without being in the thick of the noise of shopping & restaurants at the Waterfront. It is a short safe walk to get to all of that fun, and an even closer walk to Green Point if you’re visiting for an event. The rooms are good size and updated.

The location is Waterfront without being in the thick of the noise of shopping & restaurants at the Waterfront. It is a short safe walk to get to all of that fun, and an even closer walk to Green Point if you’re visiting for an event. The rooms are good size and updated. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant overlooks the ocean with a beautiful deck area and pool area and the food is delicious. This hotel would be great for adults and kids but the outdoor pool is a bit small if your children are looking for a lot of pool time. With all the great beaches in Cape Town I would still recommend this for your stay. Read less
