As soon as you arrive you feel at home. A warm welcome from Magda was nice. Great location just metres from the spectacular beach. The sea was far too wild for children. A very nice breakfast is delicious. There is a small but adequate swimming pool. The room was superb. Well worth a visit.

It's so easy to doctor a website and most places go from "Wow" on the www; to" Okay" or "Eish" on arrival. Not so with A Villa Del Mer in Port Alfred; everything is as promised; plus more. Memory is a wonderful hostess and the attention to detail is obvious; the breakfasts are sumptuous; the beach is genuinely "right in... More

We had a lovely stay. Staff were friendly and helpful! First visit to Port Alfred and Memory made it very easy to visit the most important places to optimize our visit. Recommendation - The pictures on the website seems more glamorous than in reality.

A single bed was added for my grandson which was pre-arranged with no problem.Out the front door and over the dunes to the beach. What a really special place, beautifully decorated incredibly clean and wonderful service from Magda... More

Welcome and assistance great. Guest House is on the beach. The room was clean, with all the necessary conveniences and a yummy breakfast every morning. Laundry was not a problem at all. We were directed to all the nice restaurants in the area and bookings were even offered. Will go back.

A Villa de Mer is a beautiful BnB, not far off from the beach, with great hosts. Our honeymoon suite was fantastic, overlooking the ocean. Thanks to our hosts Magda and Memory, our weekend was very special indeed as they assisted my fiance with his surprise proposal! Friendly, neat, clean and comfortable, everything needed when booking accommodation. Definitely recommend this... More

My mum and stepdad stayed here last week, and we visited them regularly. Just the most amazing welcome from the hosts....we were visiting with our baby boy (9 months) and they invited us to join our parents for breakfast each morning. We had found our self catering accommodation inadequate and the Villa de Mer team called all their contacts to... More

What a place, what a location and what wonderful owners and staff. Walk across the road after the best breakfast every day, right on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The rooms are the best we have stayed in, the pool is perfect for the non-beach days. There is no other place to stay in Port Alfred.
