“We loved Villa Blu!”
Reviewed September 9, 2008

We stayed at the Villa Blu for a couple of nights last August. Our room, "Lovers Clove" was really cosy and had the most amazing view of Grotto Beach and Walker's Bay. We could literally watch the whales from our bed! The owners, Tino and Riana, were very sweet and most helpful. They suggested places to dine and things to do. The area that Villa Blu is situated, Voelklip, is a quiet residential neighborhood approximately 5 minutes by car from the center of Hermanus . We enjoyed walking in the area and Grotto Beach very much. There is also a nature trail that starts very near the Villa Blu. It follows the coastline all the way to Hermanus and the views and nature are just breathtaking. There were many locals walking, jogging or playing with their kids on the beach. It was really relaxing to be there and we enjoyed every single minute. It is a pity we had made arrangements for only two nights but we will definitely return.

Had the pleasure of staying withTino at Villa Blu which was highly enjoyable. Very laid back place with nice rooms- we had 2 which were private and connected for our family of 4. Nice fritata for breakfast and a really relaxed atmosphere.

Villa Blu is an experience but it badly needs a decent manager or someone on site. They do the normal hellos and welcome jargon and just seem to dump you there. The place itself could be wonderufl but it needs some seriously good cleaners. Its not dirty really but you just expect more for the prices they charge. Its almost as though the owner has become complacent and leaves everything to someone else and considering the standards in South Africa which are very high, its a risky thing to do. Quite a way out of Hermanus and you need to have a car. Stayed at much better for half the price and probably wouldn't go back. Shame because it could be an absolute diamond

  • Disliked — Poor housekeeping
