Cape Town Family Holiday Magic

Family resorts in Cape Town?

Cape Town family resorts are a bit of a misnomer...

As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, family resorts in Cape Town can be tricky to source -- the city just doesn't lend itself to all-inclusive, package type destination because there’s just far too much variation in what you can see and do!

But of course loads of families have a timeshare investment somewhere. If that's you and you’re wondering whether there is a resort where you can use your points to book Cape Town holidays, the answer is likely “Yes!”

I’ve written this page with you in mind.

RCI – the South Africa Time share giant

If you mention timeshare to a South African, the name that springs to mind is RCI (short for Resort Condominiums International). I haven’t analysed the statistics, but it seems to me that the majority of South African time share resorts fall under the RCI umbrella somehow.

There are numerous RCI resorts in and around Cape Town. One of them, The Peninsula in Sea Point is rated ‘best hotel for families in Cape Town’ by Tripadvisor users.

Here’s a list of all the Cape Town family resorts I have managed to track down for you, with my verbatim notes about location and desirability!

  • Bantry Bay International Vacation Resort --
    stunning position,close to CBD but secluded
  • Big Bay Beach Club, Bloubergstrand
    great family beach nearby, classic Table mountain views
  • Cape Gordonia, Gordon’s Bay
  • – a grim-looking building, but superbly positioned near blue-flag Bikini Beach

  • Hastings Hall, Central Cape Town
  • – small, central

  • Hermanus Beach Club, Hermanus – whalewatching in season

  • Inverness, Sea Point
  • Lichtenstein Castle, Hout Bay – lovely setting above Hout Bay beach
  • Monkey Valley, Noordhoek -- overlooking Noordhoek Beach – my personal favourite! choice!
  • Mount Sierra, Tamboerskloof – conveniently central with a cosmopolitan vibe
  • Place on the Bay, Camps Bay – VERY sought after
  • Riviera, Sea Point – right on the Promenade, could be noisy
  • Royal Atlantic, Sea Point – convenient to walk to the Waterfront
