Play Putt Putt on the Promenade

Sea Point Putt Putt is located on the promenade in Mouille Point, in walking distance from out hotel. You can also cycle there with Up Cycles. It’s fun for families with kids of all ages.

We found this lovely and honest review on TripAdvisor: “Nothing appears to have changed at the Putt-Putt park since I was a kid. Very nostalgic – brightly painted course (paint flaking, adds to the nostalgia), same putters and golf balls, and the interesting course where balls go down one hole only to pop out another for a hole in one! We played in two teams: boys vs girls (girls won!). Girls included Granny of 81! Massive fun had by all. And a great place for poor holiday weather, cos you can play in wind or overcast skies and still have fun outside.”

Open Monday to Sunday from 9am to 9pm.


City Sightseeing

Hop on a Double Decker Hop on, Hop off Red Bus and explore Cape Town!

Whether it’s playing, painting, sponging or spraying, it’s about putting on an apron to face a blank canvas and unleashing your own individual creativity that makes Artjamming™ the most fun you can have with a paintbrush. It’s also located close to the President Hotel at the V&A Waterfront.

And as for what we have on offer at the hotel

Our Kid’s Play Area is always open and ready for busy kids to keep busy. We also offer a child-minding service if you’re in need. It’s located next to our pool but in a closed off area, however if you’re chilling by the pool too and your kids are old enough to go back and forth, they are most welcome. We do have a life guard on duty for extra eyes.

Kids parties are way more fun at the President Hotel. We offer an incredible location, beautiful views, infinity pool, jumping castle, jungle gym, ball pit, teepees, delicious healthy and tasty treats and yummy drinks. All of our packages include child-minders, which means more time for you to sit back, relax and enjoy watching your kids and their friends have a fantastic party.
