I called on Saturday 4 Jan to make a booking. The host informed me that I should send an email to confirm date which I promptly did. I received a confirmation email and upon arrival today was informed that the booking wasn't confirmed and no deposit was paid. I proved to him that it was untrue by showing him his... More

Oh how I liked it. It was my second time in this nice accomodation. The hosts, a couple from Germany, are very friendly and obliging. The breakfast was yummy. Ilona fixed different breakfasst, so we had variety every morning. The room was very comfortable and clean. I can say the same about the bathroom. The view from the room overlooking... More

We stayed one night at Poseidon Lodge and really enjoyed it. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and the pool area great. The close proximity to the beach is a big plus. Shopping was a short car journey away. The ventilation in the rooms was the only downside as the large windows in both rooms... More

We intended to stay only one night but ended up staying two because the guesthouse was so welcoming and comfortable. The owner made us an excellent South African breakfast (extra charge, but worth it) and we enjoyed chatting with her. She gave us tips on places to visit and where to go to eat. The beach is close by and... More

This Person never stayed in our house and there was never a complaint at Visa as he is stating in his response. We had someone from USA who booked with an Internet Agent and cancelled his booking again. He booked online and gave his credit card details by internet on the agents site. He agreed to pay a deposit to... More

This is by far the worst development i'v ever stayed and utter rude and un-professional management. i think the description is misleading with regards to proximity of restaurants and shops. The breakfast of very poor quality. i would not recommend this establishment to anyone. L Nel

When he arrived he pretended that he paid that deposit already but could not show any proof of payment . The Establishment checked their bank... More
