When we arrived in this small lodge, we felled immediately the kindness of the staff. The room was with a nice ambient of music, very clean and smelled delicious. The lounge is very inviting with good music. It is modern and because of the view it looks very spacious. We decided the first evening to have dinner here because we... More

This is now my third visit and everytime it gets a little better! The food was fantastic, and , needing to recharge our tanks, we hardly moved away from the pool for first 2 days.

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.

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

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!!!
