My husband and I stayed at the Albatros a few weeks ago while we were traveling through South Africa. I can not say enough about our time there! Bessie and Andre greeted us at the front door and made us feel welcome and at home from the very beginning. Bessie even noticed how sunburned we had gotten the day before and quickly brought us some medicine to help! Our room was clean and beautifully decorated with a balcony looking over the water. They serve a wonderful South African breakfast which is covered by the cost of the room- the best mushrooms and scrambled eggs I've ever had! We went on a fishing trip during our stay and Bessie helped us cook all of the fish that night when we got back. We got to share a meal with them and they let us use their kitchen! Andre and Bessie were perfectly accomodating, available on a moments notice if we had questions, they knew about the area, places to go and what to do. Everything about our stay was PERFECT!
