Memorie our hostess was very helpful in helping us get around. We came from the USA and thought we could take a bus or cab to see things. There is no public transportation so Memorie was very help finding us transportation. You are just across the street from a beautiful beach and can walk to the pier. They serve a... More

It was easy to find the hotel from the directions and when other family arrived during a power cut the duty manager talked them to the door on the phone. Load shedding was a feature of our stay but the staff are geared up for it and ready to advise when to get to the local restaurants while food can... More

We really loved this place. So friendly service by Memory that helped us with absolutely everything we needed and asked for. The breakfast was just stunning and the rooms very nice and comfortable. The pool and garden is also so wonderful. Close to the beautiful beach. The rain spoiled our stay a bit, but otherwise we totally recommend this place!!... More

The hotel is nicely situated on a quiet beach road, across the street from an incredible beach that goes on for miles and miles. The hosts are generous and make you feel immediately at home. The rooms are spacious and well-equipped -- with an artistic flare. Breakfasts are generous and freshly-prepared. Everything is spotless. You can walk to one or... More

My husband and I visited A Villa de Mer over the December holidays and what a nice surprise it was! The location is absolutely superb, with breathtaking views of the ocean, a very spacious room and an enormous bathroom. Walking distance from the beach and a short ride into town. But what makes me give all 5 stars is the... More

I and my little family stayed at Villa de Mer from the 16th December - 19th December 14. We traveled with my 18 months old baby boy. My son was teething and very grumpy that time. The ladies would assist us during breakfast and hold her so we can eat. This place has proper see views yet rooms very warm... More

A Villa de Mer offers in its structure and with its service a modern expression of good old times. An extra bonus is the scrumptious breakfast. The location is right by the superb West beach, with magnificent and endless dunes to be discovered at the East Beach.

The bedrooms and communal areas are spacious and tastefully furnished creating a tranquil atmosphere. Breakfasts are superb and there is a small but perfectly adequate swimming pool. During our trip to South Africa we stayed in different... More
