My partner and I were traveling with my 81 yr old mother, and spent one night at Aire del Mar. It's conveniently located a 5minute walk to the rugged beach, and near diving/shark viewing. The accommodations are roomy with self-catering option, ours had a large bath while my mom's didn't, so if that's important to you, ask for it. If... More

We were a group of 18 visiting for the weekend as we had a wedding in Stanford. From arrival to departure we were spoiled with staff going out of their way to meet our every need.

We were only there for one night because of a wedding. We had a self-catering room downstairs, which was perfect and was nice to park the car right outside the door. Spacious with a large bathroom and comfortable bed. Staff were friendly and very accommodating for an early check-in to be able to get ready for the wedding. Would stay... More

We stayed one night and were very pleased. The hostess went out of her way to help us find a restaurant as we showed up quite late in the evening. Also, the breakfast was very good with fresh made egg orders, and a cosy feeling. It is nice and clean in general but WiFi was a little shaky which takes... More

Functional and clean but devoid of all charm. The multitude don't-do-this notices do not help either. The TV channels are not tuned and the bedding is threadbare. The location is great but try for an upstairs room or you will have a lovely view of the parking lot with the associated lack of privacy.

We stayed 2 nights here. We got a large room with a balcony and a wonderful view. It was very nice owners and a good breakfast. The wifi worked good. Walking distance to a nice restaurant "The great white house" and on the way there you can find many beautiful shells. I can really recommend this guesthouse.

Once again we had a magnificent restful 5 day at this bed and breakfast which has become like our 2nd home. From the staff to the cleanliness of the establishment to a very good breakfast. We must have gone there at least 9/10 times and always really enjoyed our stay. Really recommended we will be back shortly!!
