“Special treatment”
Reviewed November 17, 2011

The staff at Villa Palmeira go out of their way to help and assist wherever they can. They even helped us with bookings at local attractions at discount prices. Villa Palmeira is a 3-star property, but the service and attention that you get makes for a 5-star experience. All the rooms have aircon - a wonderful luxury in the bushveld heat. The rooms are also very spacious!

I've stayed at Villa Palmeira Petit Hotel in Bela Bela a number of times and have always come away feeling refreshed and pampered. The owner/manager is one of the nicest people I've ever met, and always go out of his way to make my stay there a pure pleasure. In fact, he has gone beyond what is "expected" of an establishment such as this.
The hotel is in a very quiet area, yet very close to all amenities.
I can highly recommend this establishment.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet. For a private balcony, ask for a room on first floor.

We stayed here for 4 nights in the honeymoon suite and it was beter than expected. We would rate this as 4 star and higher. It was really quiet and we enjoyed wonderful lazy days in the room. It is such a big room that we could even have our own space. the owner help us so much with bookings, ideas and the food was great. They really know their stuff.

When we booked, we specifically asked for a quiet room. THe manager gave us the honeymoon suite. It turns out it is directly above reception. The place has basically squeezed as many rooms into one house as possible. If you want something quiet, go somewhere else, and not the place across the road (Waterberg Guesthouse). See separate review on that. The management try to help, but should be more accurate about their promises. And the rooms are hardly pure luxury. Very basic.

VP_55, Owner at Villa Palmeira Petit Hotel, responded to this review, August 6, 2012
The Guest in Question came in as a Friend of A friend and was given a special discount. After numerous e-mails and phonecalls to assist with the perfect breakaway we were totally taken aback at the fact that he just walked into the room - spent 2 minutes in there and decided it is too noisy. I did everything I could to help him even at another property, but he just wanted to complain?

Luckily it did not tarnish my friendship with the guy who did this for him as a favour?
