A little outside the City of Cape Town is a hotel, a large 4 star hotel. The Lagoon Beach Hotel sits on the beach and has what is the only uninterrupted view across Table Bay of Table Mountain. Perfectly positioned the hotel is popular because of its view amongst many things but is often missed out because the hotel sits on the outskirts of the city.  The hotel as rooms, suites and even timeshare, a breakfast area and bar lead out to a pool area and there in front of you is the majestic table mountain begging you to sit and watch her as you sip of your glass of Cape Wine. If you want sunsets, then lagoon beach is the place for you. With a full spa and a choice of excellent restaurants close by Lagoon Beach is a hotel that is very much a best kept secret.
