My boyfriend and I stayed at this villa for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay so much that at some point, we refused to head outdoors.
Lodging/room – The lodging overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and we could watch the whales from the balcony of our room. We stayed in Dolphin room A which was on the top floor. The room was spacious, bright, and clean with white contemporary furnishings. The bed was 5-star standard and extremely comfortable. The shower was also commendable, producing an invigorating flow of water and steady temperature. Free but limited wifi access was available.
Food – One of the better breakfasts we have had amidst the high standards set by various lodgings/B&Bs along the Garden Route. There was a wide breakfast choice, continental, Full English, French toasts etc.
Service/Staff – Excellent staff who are helpful and prompt in making trip arrangements and restaurant bookings for us. We were also treated to some complimentary wine in the room upon arrival, and the staff brought us hot water bottles at night even though the plush quilt covers were sufficient to keep us warm.
Parking – Parking was alongside the beach villa, on the grass patches, not in private lots/garages but safe.
Note – The villa has a few levels only accessible by stairs so it will not be advisable to stay in rooms on the higher levels if you are unfit for stairs. Excessive luggage is also not ideal so we actually packed a separate lightweight luggage and left the rest in the car.
We would definitely recommend this beach villa to those visiting Hermanus.
