We saw the photo's on the website but what it can't depict is the the amount of space there is. Bloom is a real gem, from the layout, design and style. The views of the mountains are lovely along with the lavender beds swimming pool, nod and the hidden jacuzzi which sadly we didn't find time to use. We stayed 3 nights and could have easily managed to spend a few more if we had time to spare, unfortunately not. The bedrooms were very spacious with lovely bathrooms the bloom products in the bathroom were a nice touch too. We utilised the use of the in room DVD and got takeaway pizza 1 night for a change which was good as we were travelling with friends. Maartan had organised a dinner reservation for us on arrival ( which we were undergo obligation to go to) which proved to be a great choice. La Sosta restaurant again another recommendation was a delightful meal. The breakfasts at Bloom were great, such a choice. The fresh fruit was delicious along with the yoghurt, plenty of continental meats and cheese and the list goes. My husband and friend said it was the best coffee of the holiday too! Maarten and Carla are great hosts giving advice where needed and recommending places to visit and most importantly good wineries to stop at.
