This small beachfront resort with rooms in earth tones arranged around a courtyard with a pool, is an attractive option if you don't need all the amenities of the larger resorts but want an excellent restaurant. The hotel and restaurant are now managed by Rob and Corrie Pronk. The restaurant, Chef Rob's, is one of the best on the Southern Coast. Parrot Cove also has two 2-bedroom units in a beachhouse next door.
