Travel Blogs from Cape Town
Add in a few breakdowns and we have arrived! Robin, met us at the airport and had our ride ready to whisk us away to the hotel. At this point, the only thing I can think about is a shower. Our driver is a very nice man, who gives us lots of tips on what to do and avoid in Cape Town. At the hotel, we are greeted by a handsome man that makes us each …
Today is a travel day for us. First Bernadette from the local travel office phoned to see if Sheila was improving- how amazing! She then confirmed our driver was picking us
up at 10am. We are now packed and on our way with a new driver.
We head over the Zambezi bridge we saw from the Victoria Falls national park, passing the bungee jumping …
... though they cost about $5, but it really helps to see deeper in the water when the sharks swim nearby. The boat has a top deck where you can see them circling really well, and can get a 360 degree view of the area around the boat. We even got to see the sharks come up out of the water a couple of times and I saw their teeth too! Basically, completely worth the money.

... the coast was developed it still maintained its natural look. From the beach we drove up into the hills and camped at another amazing backpackers called Wild Farm. Wild Farm is built on a hill it has all to itself with the ocean, national park, and town all visible in the distance. We could still hear the crashing waves from up there. They also had a large vegetable garden which we were welcomed to walk through and pick what we pleased. We picked spinach, ...
... to start their own garden. After that, we went to a Methodist church near downtown. It was really cool to sing songs that I knew from home. The pastor's name is Alan Story, and he had a lot to share with us after the service about the history of the church and apartheid since he grew up during the apartheid. I really enjoyed that experience. After church, we went across the street to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Southern Sun Waterfront Cape Town
Siamo stati molto bene in questo hotel. E' stato facile trovarlo e anche parcheggiare (anche se potrebbero abbuonare le R10 al giorno come tassa per il parcheggio) ed è anche centrale per le maggiori attrazioni di Cape Town.
Il servizio era perfetto, c'era anche un bus navetta gratuito che portava avanti e indietro da V&A Waterfront e nel foyer c'erano caramelle e bevande gratuite. I bar & i ristoranti erano buoni e anche convenienti e la colazione a buffet ed era tanto abbondante che fino alla cena si era sazi. Il servizio Concierge era positivo, ci hanno anche fornito un servizio di noleggio macchina anche se non lo avevamo chiesto.
Nel complesso lo consigliamo
Wir waren mit diesem Hotel sehr zufrieden. Es war leicht zu finden und auch Parken war kein Problem (man sollte hier aber auf die 10 RAD Parkgebühr pro Tag verzichten) und es liegt recht zentral zu den meisten Sehenswürdigkeiten Kapstadts.
Der Service war super, ein kostenloser Shuttlebus verkehrt zwischen dem Hotel und dem Wasser und in der Lobby bekommt man kostenlose Getränke und Süßigkeiten. Die Bars und Restaurants waren gut und der Preis war recht vernünftig, das Frühstücksbuffet war ausreichend und reichte bis zum Abendessen vor. Der Concierge Service war auch super, man regelte hier ein Problem mit dem Mietwagen für uns obwohl wir den nicht einmal über das Hotel gebucht hatten.
Ich kann das Hotel nur rundherum empfehlen.
Just back from 7 nights in the Southern Sun Waterfront (Previously the Holiday Inn Waterfront). Nice Hotel located just at the entrance to the road which leads directly into the famous V&A Waterfront. Shuttle bus runs to the Waterfront at regular intervals or you can do as we did and stroll it in about 10 minutes.
Wir hatten dieses Hotel in letzter Minute gebucht, sodass wir vor unserer Ankunft kaum Zeit hatten, es zu prüfen!
We booked this hotel last minute so didn't really have a lot of time to investigate before we arrived!

Ausgezeichnetes Hotel, ausgezeichnete Lage!
Und jetzt zum Southern Sun Cape Town Waterfront, ein ausgezeichnetes Hotel in ausgezeichneter Lage! Das Hotel ist sehr schick und scheint kürzlich renoviert worden zu sein. Unser Zimmer war groß, makellos sauber und sehr komfortabel mit wundervollem Blick auf Table Mountain. Das Empfangspersonal war unglaublich freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Frühstück muss wohl das beste gewesen sein, das ich je in einem großen Hotel gegessen habe: Das umfangreiche Buffet war von ausgezeichneter Qualität und der Service war äußerst aufmerksam. Weitere Pluspunkte waren der schöne Außenpool und der Barbereich. Wärmstens zu empfehlen, und wir hoffen, schon bald wieder einmal hierher kommen zu können!
Excellent Hotel, Excellent location!
Now the Southern Sun Cape Town Waterfront, this is an excellent hotel in a fantastic location! The hotel is very smart and looks like it has been recently refurbished. Our room was large, spotlessly clean and very comfortable with a wonderful view of Table Mountain. Reception staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The breakfast has to be the best I've ever experienced in a large hotel; the extensive buffet was of an excellent standard and the service extremely attentive. An added bonus was the lovely outdoor pool and bar area. Highly recommended and hope to return soon!
