Just got back from our second visit to Villa Surprise and are glad to say that it is still a great place to stay!
We had a split stay with 8 nights in the Africa Room over Christmas and then another 2 nights (after a 4 night mini tour down the coast) in the Morocco (cum new Africa) Room for New Year. The Africa room is still as comfortable as before (see previous review) and had a small make over since our last stay with the addition of a wall mounted flat screen TV and a large walk in shower replacing the bath - very nice touch!
The Morocco Room has also begun to be changed into a 2nd Africa room but with the Moroccan influence being maintained in the very spacious bathroom. The point of entry for this room was from the garden (which we were originally concerned about) but this was great for access to sunbathing by the pool. Again, a comfy lounge area, free safe, fridge, flat screen TV and comfortable beds made this a lovely room to stay in.
Rolf had built a new Cabana style shaded patio which was a lovely place to avoid the hot midday sunshine and the pool area was great to catch the sun and relax under the new large umbrella in the hammock when desired.
Marko, Rolf, Janet and the staff all made this another wonderful stay with lovely gestures over Xmas and New Year adding that extra touch (New Years Eve drinks were fabulous - many thanks)! We were made to feel so welcome and part of the family!! Breakfasts were as good as we remembered and they kindly looked after our extra baggage while we scooted off for 4 days exploring between our stays. The mini bar was well stocked and the laundry service was very quick and reasonably priced.
I cannot recommend this place highly enough and I hope to return again in the future. Thanks guys!!
