The place is massive, clean and has everything one needs. We booked out the entire Villa and thanks to Magda, the manager, we were well looked after. We braaied, went for walks on the beach 🏖, as the Villa is literally on it. We’ll be back.

This Guest House is just out of town on a quiet road, overlooking the sand dunes and the sea. It offers a variety of beautiful rooms and the most delicious breakfast. The staff were very helpful and Magda is a mine of local information. Would definitely stay here again.

Beach-view was exciting. Room overlooked the pool and garden. Peaceful place and friendly staff. Lovely host. I enjoyed the breakfast the most as we were saved quality fruit, juice , muffins, sausages, eggs, mushrooms. Definitely a lovely place to accommodate family as well. The bedding was clean and comfortable which is a big deal for me.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
My wife and I wanted to spend a weekend away as a special treat and we found all we could have asked for at A Villa de Mer. Everything was professionally done, from the initial reception, to the room service, to the breakfasts, to the ordering in for us of evening meals when trays, cutlery and crockery were also thoughtfully provided without having to ask for them. (The hotel deal was B&B.)As the hotel is close to the beach and the sea air we were provided with a lock up garage for our vehicle.I was not surprised to learn that the hotel was fully booked but it didn't feel like it as we never felt crowded or were aware of guests in the other rooms. The architecture of the building promotes a feeling or airiness and space.Our overall experience of A Villa de Mer is that this is where things are done as you would like them to be done.
