A Villa de Mer is not an impersonal hotel, if that's what your looking for. Its a guesthouse that offers personal attention. Memory, Magda and the staff treated us like family friends from the moment we arrived. The rooms are big enough to swing a cat, the bed was as soft as grandmother's feather bed, and there were pillows to... More

We had a wonderful time staying in Villa de Mer! The breakfasts were from heaven delivered by Angels! Loved the setting, design and feel of your lovely venue - it must be spectacular in summer! Thanks again for the warm hospitality.

I have stayed here many times over the past 4 years and have always had the most wonderful service. Rooms are spotless, bedding and linen are superb, and the service from Memory, Magda and staff has always been exemplary. A further bonus:- They have an emergency water supply which is an absolute must in Port Alfred!

The accommodation was great - I've stayed in two rooms and have seen the others - they're all spacious with quality finishes. Quality linen and bedding! The service was very friendly and professional. Magda, the hostess was kind enough to serve us breakfast at 6h30. Good location, close to the beach.

The rooms are spacious as is the bathroom. Breakfasts were lovely as were the odd suppers i had there. ALL the staff were extremely... More

We recently spent 4 nights at A Villa de Mer, our second visit to this guesthouse. Memory and her staff were fantastic, once again, and go out of their way to make one feel comfortable. We will certainly stay at A Villa de Mer again when next in Port Alfred.

We spent two nights at A Villa de Mer on our way from Durban to Port Elizabeth. The staff were wonderful - friendly and helpful and most accommodating. Our room had a great view of the sea and was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was great - a fruit platter followed by a choice of breakfast which changed each... More

A beautiful, immaculately kept, contemporary property situated a stone's throw from the beach. Everything throughout this property is of top quality, the decor, the furnishings and eye-catching artworks. Memory, our host, was without doubt or exaggeration the very best of all those we met during our two month tour of S.Africa. A truly fantastic lady who made our stay as... More
