“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

Unfortunately we stayed only for one night at beautiful Villa Africana. Our stay was just outstanding. Bianca and Ross are perfectly wonderful, the staff very friendly and attentively.We felt extremely welcomed (never felt like this on the whole journey again). One more time we like to thank Bianca and Ross for a wonderful stay and also for her affection and generosity. The wooden bowl has it's own nice place back home and remembers us each day on you and our stay at lovely Villa Africana.

We only booked one night which was a mistake.........we wanted to see the area and booked several hotels in different areas...........A much better idea would have been to stay at Villa Afrikana for longer and day trip to other areas. I say this because the setting the views the service and the general class of this place is second to none and the breakfast on our balcony was simply perfect.

Top marks from us and we look forward to our next stay but for at least 3 nights.

Ross and Bianca know their stuff. On arrival we were welcomed, by a person with a name tag, out luggage was taken care of and we got a drink straight away. We got a bottle of bubbles for our honeymoon and everyday a little gift that made it more special. Roses petals was laid out in heart shape on our bed. Breakfast delivered to our room, weather forecast for the next day and the coffee great quality. The hosts were like friends, and we felt extremely comfortable and welcomed. When lounging at the pool we got offered drinks. I guess their customer
Retention would be 100% because they have great taste. Would I go back? Hell, i wanted to go back when we left because nothing beats what they offer!

Fantastic location and impeccable service. Great night and attention to detail was evident throughout. The Villa is well apportioned and quite relaxing and very much lived up to positive TA reviews. Driveway could be a little hard to navigate and Internet service a little spotty but a small price to pay for such a great experience. Looking forward to our return.

We only got to stay one night, but we will be back. Bianca and Ross have a very well run operation with excellent attention to detail, but more importantly they are both lovely people and you can see they enjoy what they do. They are the icing on the cake of a wonderful stay...thanks guys! Nat and Grant
