The hospitality I experienced at this hotel was phenomenal. Everyone was so nice and sweet! Concy was so helpful in helping me figure out where to get local foods and even do my hair. The ambiance of the hotel was everything. Would definitely recommend this place again. I was so sad the day I left

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.
