POD is absolutely the most beautiful hotel I've had the pleasure to stay. The service is beyond belief, attention to every detail. The location is perfect. The beach is right across the street and restaurants and shops are an easy walk. If you're in doubt about where to stay in Cape Town, do book POD.

Best of both worlds
Staff amazing, room sensational, views exceptional and location brilliant. Highly recommend this place. It was recommended to me by a friend and it didn't disappoint. Ideally located if you want to use the beach and only be a short trip out of the city. Best of both worlds. Thanks to the staff at POD. Courteous, friendly and helpful. Really make you feel welcome. Go and see for yourselves.
