“A wonderful weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Very comfortable accommodation. Delicious 5 star breakfast. Hostess went way beyond her duty to make us feel at home. Near to all amenities. Went whale watching in Hermanus. Loved Fernkloof nearby. My husband enjoyed watching the rubgy on Saturday afternoon.

We stayed at Villa Blu for six days and had a perfect time. Upon arrival we found a little cheese platter and champagne in our room as well as a basked for the beach containing towels, magazines, sunscreen. The manager Elizabeth and her team were very friendly. The breakfast was outstanding, probably the best we ever had.
From our sundeck we spotted the first whale a minute after arriving. Bring binoculars for a closer view.
Grotto Beach is within easy walking distance. From Grotto Beach you can also enter the Cliff Path that takes you into the Town Centre. Don´t rush, you will often stop and look out at the sea.
The Fernklof Nature reserve just above Hermanus has excellent hiking trails for shorter or longer walks and and boasts an incredible number of species.
So if you stop at Hermanus and Villa Blu it is surely a good idea to stay longer than just one night.

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Blu, on arrival there was a small bottle of sparkling wine for us to enjoy while on the upstairs terrace. Whale watching is possible from the terrace. The breakfast is plentiful and keeps you going all day. The rooms are really great and the sleep quality is perfect. Keep it up

We really enjoyed the stay and would strongly recommend Villa Blu to our friends! Welcomed by friendly staff, a cheese platter and champagne in the room. Service was excellent with a personal touch in everything! Well done! A great place to stay at.

Room Tip: Seafront rooms have a very good view!

Recently had a magnificent stay at Villa Blu with family and friends. The setting is perfect with magnificent views! What made it more delightful was the personal attention given to us by all the staff and an unmatched breakfast experience! The rooms are huge and beautifully decorated. This is the perfect location in Hermanus for whale watching and we can't wait to get back there as soon as possible! Sam and Gerda

The Rooms are amazing, the setting and atmosphere are tranquil. The staff are very helpful, they love children, and to top it all there is an amazing 5 course breakfast, which is michelin star standard!
