Once again we decided to go back to our favorite spot on the South Coast, Days at Sea. For us it was the fourth time at this beautiful "home away from home" place. Again the place did it with me, the moment you walk in you feel in a different world. A world that brings you happiness and for me... More

Days At Sea Lodge is definitely worth a visit! It is such a wonderful location with plenty of natural beauty but the careful attention to detail in the design of the lodge and rooms make it a very unique, cosy and special place to spend peaceful and fun moments to unwind. Perfect place to either go with a group of... More

I don't believe there's words to describe the amazing 4 day stay we had at Days At Sea! After a busy year we decided to take a 4 day break and came across this little spot of paradise on the South Coast. Being a suspicious person I thought that this looked too good to be true, but from the moment... More

What a let down. Never book into the Inkawu room as the picture on the internet is not that room but a seriously watered-down version of the other rooms. The food is not fusion cuisine with a combination of Italy and France with a dash of Asia, “ as advertised nor light Mediterranean cuisine. Expect to get wet when booking... More

Dear guests, your intention to go for a refund of your payment was very obvious and you tried this in a clear way when you see what you wrote to us:"I also have to notify the establishment that depending on their response will determine our further action." Now let me correct some facts. Our website is very transparent and the... More

I stayed with my family at the villa, which I absolutely loved. It was quirkily decorated, and my favourite part of it was the terrace at the back: it had an infinity pool and we had our breakfast served there with a view out over the ocean every day that it wasn't raining. That said, it is less of a... More

Dear guests, thank you for this friendly review. We will follow up every single point that was not perfect for you. Of course this is a very personal house as this is our " winter" retreat for plus minus 3 months per year. Besides of Rolf Benz collector's items and some of my special works there is for us the...

The location is good, on a hillside overlooking Trafalgar beach. There are several steps to get to the reception and then the restaurant and rooms. The pool is a level lower. You can access the beach by walking through a tropical forest-like zone for about 10 minutes. The rooms are well done up and quite large. We had a lovely... More

Words are not enough to describe the feeling you get when entering this beach lodge. The atmosphere, the vibe....For me it is a must to spend a couple of days there to escape from normal life into a vision. Thanks to the good souls of the team, taking care of everything before you even have to mention it. Unbelievable service!!!

Days at sea is a home from home. The open space,gives you the feeling of living like Robinson Crusoe but MUCH more luxuriously. The privacy, the service and the absolut stunning surrounding is unbeatable. iIf we need an other day in paradise, we for sure will come back. A perfect place to relax and enjoy life.

We were booked to stay at Days at Sea for 2 weeks for our Honeymoon. Bearing in mind that there were always only a maximum of 4 guests there at any given point, our breakfast order was wrong 5 times!

The whole Days At Sea Team takes reviews very seriously and I - as the owner- follow up each complaint personally. In your case I have to clarify some points in all respect. You booked your Suite for 10 days not for two weeks. Unfortunately the weather was very bad during your whole stay, which might explain your frustration. So... More
