You will have seen from previous reviews this must have been our 9th, 10th or 11th time we have visited Aire del Mar and again we were not disappointed. If you are looking for a restful time walks along the beach, swimming at Klein baai or Franskraal having an excellent meal at one of the many restaurants in Klein baai...

We were accommodated for an unplanned additional night as our previous accommodation was terrible to say the least. Staff were extremely welcoming and assisted where possible. Great breakfast and a sea facing room! Clean and well maintained home style accommodation with extra big beds! Close to beaches and local restaurants and shops. We'll definitely be back.

My partner and I were traveling with my 81 yr old mother, and spent one night at Aire del Mar. It's conveniently located a 5minute walk to the rugged beach, and near diving/shark viewing. The accommodations are roomy with self-catering option, ours had a large bath while my mom's didn't, so if that's important to you, ask for it. If...

We were only there for one night because of a wedding. We had a self-catering room downstairs, which was perfect and was nice to park the car right outside the door. Spacious with a large bathroom and comfortable bed. Staff were friendly and very accommodating for an early check-in to be able to get ready for the wedding. Would stay...

We stayed one night and were very pleased. The hostess went out of her way to help us find a restaurant as we showed up quite late in the evening. Also, the breakfast was very good with fresh made egg orders, and a cosy feeling. It is nice and clean in general but WiFi was a little shaky which takes...

Functional and clean but devoid of all charm. The multitude don't-do-this notices do not help either. The TV channels are not tuned and the bedding is threadbare. The location is great but try for an upstairs room or you will have a lovely view of the parking lot with the associated lack of privacy.
