Stayed here over the Cape Town Jazz Fest. Great location, beautiful view. A lot more needs to be done. Toilet at the entrance is beyond NOT amazing. I don't understand the concept and it is not easy on the eye. The cleaning can be improved, A LOT! Bathroom was not up to scratch, quite filthy. It was okay because well,... More

This place is in a good location. It has beautiful views of the sea, the beach, and the mountain. The linen was great. With good management, or knowledge of hospitality, it can be great. The room has no mirrors. The room is supposed to have a queen size bed, but it had a double size bed. The shower / bath... More

It's a guest house. Friendly welcome. Table Mountain behind, Seaview. Great location. No food etc. Around, car is mandatory. The house itself appears somehow not ready. Or partly broken already. Pool dirty. OK, owner started cleaning the other day. Furniture at balcony broken or shaky at least. Breakfast was a special experience. Just put the eggs at a plate and... More

The views are superb from the balcony but they are not private as stated on bookingsites. The pool area is ok but could benefit from some decorations and cosy details. You will need a car to go to the Beach - you can walk but the walk is steep and a b bit boring. The owner is very friendly and... More

We were looking forward to our stay in Cape Town and it was great apart from where we stayed - it was filthy, the brother of the owner was disinterested in us, no supplies in the rooms, pool dirty, no room cleaning, miles to walk to beach, would not advise staying there

Definitely not deserving of its stars: Apart from the 22h lock-up of the gate, the fake green and not really well-adjusted grass carpet on the wooden deck (which is then covered by it…), the TV not working, no breakfast offered, the strangely deserted establishment-not romantically quiet! just odd), not even a cup for our toothbrushes (when you start noticing those...

I'd love to say it was ok as the view of Camps Bay and 12 apostles was amazing and the room we had was great, but there was too many other issues to rate it higher than poor - Pool was actually more like a fishpond (no way would you swim in it!) - Nothing stocked (no coffee, milk sachets... More

Location great. Rooms, bedding and cleanliness great. Owner George is foreign so communication is poor. No keys given so we were locked out. His cellphone went to voicemail, and he was full of excuses. Property is run down, so does not look like the website - deck tables broken, astro turf on deck loose, and flaps all night. TV not...

We went on a romantic weekend away and I booked at Al Villa Romantica after having looked at the pictures and desriptions on this site and let me say that we were nothing short of disappointed when we arrived.
