Location,staff it has it all”
Fantastic hotel in the perfect location of camps bay. Minutes away from bars , restaurants and the odd shop or 2 not much shopping here this is beach and eating at its best. Hotel staff from arrival in between to departure were generous in there help to make your stay fun and spectacular. Check in is quick, welcome glass of wine . Was lucky to get room upgraded to sea view and balcony which were amazing room 203 loved this room. It was our Anniversary trip we received champagne and flowers on the bed they just did all the amazing things with no fuss. Bar and pool area are super relaxed , nice music, great lounging options and it’s just bliss lying listening to the waves. Would say this hotel is as good as it gets you should snap it up now. Thanks to all the wonderful staff we met for making this a spectacular time in Cape Town. Jim & Pamela

Best location & hotel in camps bay!”
Super nice hotel, we stayed in the mini mountain rooms but surprisingly not as small as they sound at all. Well worth the money as the hotel has a great location super close to all restaurants & beach. Really nice breakfast. Staff was so friendly made it feel like home. Would recommend this hotel to anyone & if going back to Cape Town for sure this is where I would stay again. Camps bay is the best location for Cape Town, easy access to beach, highways etc if you need to do sightseeing. Good promenade with great restaurants & bars.
Charming Boutique Hotel with Attention to Luxury & Detail”
We were totally charmed by this lovely hotel. Situated in prime Camps Bay territory with close access to the beach, it had everything we could have asked for and more. It felt safe and the staff went out of their way to be helpful and nice - the hotel provides free underground parking and our car was always attended to in a very timely matter. It always drives me crazy when you have to wait 20 mins for your car but someone would always run and get it right away. The rooms were big and clean and gorgeous with very comfortable beds and soft linens and great pillows. Great shower, plumbing worked perfectly. The breakfast was delicious and the bar staff was very attentive - we loved the complimentary happy hour every night. Some examples: the hotel provides beach bags with towels and travel packets of sunscreen and bug repellent, and I believe you can also have them set up chairs and towels for you, the room was appointed with many amenities that were restocked every day.
Dear Alison, Thank you for your outstanding review and for sharing your thoughts on Agoda's guest platform. We are happy to hear that the staff and amenities stood out for you and we hope to have the pleasure of hosting you at POD again in the near future! With warm regards, the POD team

Couldn't have had a better hotel”
We stayed for four nights in September and had an excellent stay. We stayed for the middle time of our honeymoon after spending 4 nights in the city center. We instantly new this was the place for us. From the moment we set foot in the door the staff was over the top helpful for every piece of our stay. They setup beach chairs and umbrellas along with beach towels and water for the days we stayed on the beach. They offered to pack bags for days we decided to hike lions head. And were always on top of things to get taxis and every thing else ready. We hardly lifted a finger and we always felt like they were genuinely interested in making every bit of our trip memorable and relaxed. The location was perfect for us as it was about 1 block off of the beach with still excellent views and about a 1 min walk to the beach. This meant the crowds of people were just far enough that we had much more peace and quiet when we wanted it, but still close enough that we could walk any where in camps bay any time of day and felt 100% safe. Plus it's a smaller hotel than some of the other bigger names which meant we got to know the staff were able to provide us with such personalized service. I can't say a bad thing about this place, it was ideal. Also the breakfasts were delicious as well as the drinks at the bar in the afternoon/evening.

Excellent stay at Pod! We felt this is our home in Camps Bay with literally all the staff constantly going the extra mile to help and make sure your stay is memorable! The Suite is just fantastic!!! Thank you Pod's team and management! Walid
Splendid hotel by the beach”
The hotel is very modern and has a contemporary design. It's located in Camps Bay which is 15 minutes by car from the V&A Waterfront but only 1 minute-walk from the beach. The bedroom was perfect with great amenities and a complimentary mini-bar (wine, beer, soft drinks). The staff is also amazing and they will do their best to answer to all your questions or help you organise activities or dinners. I highly recommend this place for solo travellers or couples.
Dear Victoire, Thank you for your glowing review - we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We hope to see you again soon! Warmest regards, The POD team
Incredible hotel in Camps Bay”
This is an incredible hotel. They have thought of every detail to make your stay as luxurious and comfortable as possible and you will want for nothing whilst you are there. The architecturally designed hotel and rooms have some great features which provide a contemporary and elegant feel to the accommodation. The rooms are large and very comfortable and the bed was amazing. The staff at PODS were very professional and friendly, whilst providing a very hospitable atmosphere in which nothing was too much trouble. This is no doubt one of the best hotel we have stayed in around the world and we had an amazing 6 days there. The hotel is within a short walk to a wide range of restaurants, cafes and bars. It also has it own bar and swimming pool. The buffet breakfast was incredible and of a very high standard. I would thoroughly recommend this boutique, luxury hotel.
Perfect chilled out Camps Bay boutique hotel ”
All positives: Staff go out of their way to help you with everything. Book tables. Suggest shops. Park the car. The little details are looked after, like putting bottled water and snacks out for you, complimentary. Stellar cooked and continental breakfast. Free wine every day around sunset! With cheese also. Free and refilled daily mini bar in the room! Location in barely one block back from the beach, and only a short drive or jog up to Clifton. Heated private pool in our suite was a showstopper. We would like to thank POD for their fantastic work!
Dear Alison, Thank you for your glowing review - we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us, as well as the amenities, location and all of the staff members who assisted you. We hope to have the pleasure of hosting you at POD again in the near future! With warm regards, the POD team
Every. 👏 Detail. 👏 in Place 👏👏”
They think of things which would be useful before you do. Ever single detail was in place. The staff was warm and professional. There are a lot of great hotels but customer service sets the fantastic ones apart. POD is fantastic.
Dear Beau, Thank you for your kind words regarding your stay with us! We are delighted that our team made an impression, and we hope that next time you'll join us for a longer stay! With warm regards, Tammy and the POD team
Very romantic, well located, great hospitality”
It was our second time at the POD , the staff welcomed us very warmly and even remembered our anniversary, always a pleasure to be there, we look fwd to return soon
I loved this hotel. The rooms are so comfortable and very spacious. They had so many little details that made it comfortable... are all very small things that added up to really feeling at home. Plus the bed was really comfy. The rooms were very quiet, I hardly ever heard neighbors which is rare in a lot of hotels. The people that worked here were all very helpful and friendly. There was lots of stuff to walk to in the area as well,
This was one of the most beautiful properties I have ever stayed in. A beautiful reception area with an ocean view deck. The food (complimentary breakfast) was delicious. The room we were in was a little small for my sister in law and me They gave us an upgrade with a deck and view of the ocean without us even requesting it. The staff was helpful with sightseeing, setting up an in hotel massage, and ordering in food for dinner outside with our personal fire pot The staff was pleasant, and very personal. I would recommend this property at the highest rating possible. Bridget Halvorson. Loomis. California
Dear Bridget, Thank you for your kind words regarding your recent stay with us. We are delighted that you enjoyed the upgrade, as well as all of the staff offerings. The fire pot and dinner on the deck is a guest favorite, and we are glad that you got to enjoy the experience. We hope to have the pleasure of seeing you again at POD soon! Kindest regards, The POD team
Customer service top notch”
Every single employee bent over backwards to make our stay the most enjoyable it could be. It’s very difficult to get such good customer service. The location is a bit away from everything but Uber’s are inexpensive and easy to achieve. The staff were all amazing . The only negative is the way the rooms are set up. They are very tiny and you have to be careful getting on and off the bed without falling off platforms. It reminded us a lot like south beach hotels in Miami. We highly recommend
Dear Sandi, Thank you very much for your glowing review! We are glad to hear that our staff made a lasting impression during your stay. The POD team hopes to welcome you back, for another "top notch" stay in the not too distant future. Regards, Dani and the POD team.
We have stayed in many great hotels, but this hotel is simply unique !!! The staff is so courteous and everyone was super friendly. They fulfilled every wish! Breakfast was fantastic. Everyday we got a different smoothie and you can order what you want. The daily wine and the cheese buffet at sunset were simply fantastic! We will definitely come back again! We already miss them a lot! Thank you for everything!!!! Our stay was JUST PERFECT!
Dear Hanna, Thank you for your positive review and for posting such kind words about our staff. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed breakfast and our sunset evenings, as well as your overall stay. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the near future! With warm regards, Tam and the POD team
Incredible place, incredible staff. Finding it very hard to fault anything in all honesty. Location couldn’t be better, a stones throw from the beach and promenade. Price of the room a little on the high side but we definitely got what we paid for and in peak season. Would highly recommend
Dear Thomas, Thank you for your warm words regarding your recent stay with us as well as taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our breathtaking location, - we trust that you enjoyed the rest of your time in Cape Town and we hope to see you at POD again soon!
