We have been to some of the other One&Only Resorts already and wanted to check this one out. AMAZING what you can build right in a city. Spending the afternoons at the swimming pool made us think we are in Mauritius - the weather was right and the palm trees were swaying.

Super city resort - could have not been better. The spa is amazing, the restaurants are both really good and we had a great view from our suite. Exquisite!!!

Oh, what a nice time we had at this BEST Resort. The weather was so nice and we thought we were in Mauritius when we used the swimming pool. Although we were right in Cape Town at the Waterfront where there is so much going on.

The food could have not been better, the staff was very nice, the rooms were big and so modern, beautiful! I loved it. It is not a cheap hotel, but if you want to really spoil yourself, then it is the best choice for Cape Town.

Auf Wiedersehen,

Brilliant location, super food, first class facilities, I cannot find anything negative about this super hotel. I did not think that it is possible to have a real Resort in the city, but the One&Only Cape Town made it true!!!

Very well done to the staff, we had a fabulous time there and hope that we can return again in the future.

We used this hotel as our wedding anniversary location, and thanks God we did! It was Heaven on Earth for us.

Best service, very big bedroom by the pool. We had told the concierge about our anniversary and on arrival back from dinner, we were met by a room entirely lit by candles, with rose petals lying from the bed up to and into the bath tub, champagne and fruit/chocolates. AMAZING! I will never forget that.

A great place to spend a very special occassion.
