Ocean View Hotel, the perfect place for a family holiday


When wanting to get away, one of the places we often visit is the Wild Coast. With breathtaking views and a fresh ocean breeze to fill your lungs as you explore the area’s rugged coastline and magnificent landscape, the Wild Coast is one destination where you always want to stay longer.

This is especially true if you have stayed at Ocean View Hotel, which is nestled between dark green cliffs and the sparkling ocean within Coffee Bay. It is also one of the most accessible retreats on the Wild Coast.

At Ocean View, you will receive top notch service from the hotel’s friendly staff, who always go out of their way to make their guests feel special - from check-in to check-out.

The hotel has two different accommodation options in the Sea View or Garden View suites. Both suites are beautifully decorated and have a light and airy feel, giving one that perfect beach vibe. You will also find them spotlessly clean, with many picture/selfie opportunities right on the patio.

Each room has an en-suite bathroom, tea/coffee making facilities and a ceiling fan, while the bedrooms offer a double or twin bed. As an added bonus, every visitor gets to fall asleep to the soothing sounds of crashing waves. Lovely!

Being family friendly, they have great activities on site for kids, including their crystal clear pool, a trampoline and children’s play area, convenient for parents, who want to enjoy the tranquil setting with a good book on the deck. Ocean View also has a spa with various treatments, which will help one to relax with ease.

There are many great family activities in the surrounding area, such as hiking, forest walks, horse riding, fishing, off-road biking, kayaking, bird-watching, guided cultural tours, and let’s not forget swimming in the big sparkling blue.

Their delightful restaurant offers scrumptious buffet meals, which are served on the sea facing veranda. There is also the hotel bar, which is right next to the pool, making it the perfect spot to relax with a sundowner or two, after a day of family fun.

I find one of the best times to stay at Ocean View is in winter. Because it will be somewhat quieter and peaceful with fewer holiday-makers during this time, it actually makes one’s retreat even more relaxing, and the Wildcoast is known for its mild winters.

Aside from the holiday element, the hotel is also ideal for out of town family get-togethers, birthdays, anniversaries, bachelor and bachelorette parties. For companies, they also have modern conferencing facilities and can host team-building activities.
