Excellent stay

Review of La Villa Vita
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Oct 2023
We visited la villa vita botique hotel over the weekend with the family and this place is marvellous. Its the gem of mbombela right in the top of the hill giving you a panoramic view of the surroundings. If peace, tranquility and a break from the hustle and bustle of city life is what you looking for, this place will give you that. Their buffet breakfast is to die for, with fresh warm croissants straight from the oven. The rooms are aeromatically calming, fresh and spotless. The cosy gym was a cherry on top.Thank you Nastajia and the team for your unparrallel hospitality, we really enjoyed our stay and will definatelty be coming back soon.

Reviewed 8 October 2023

This was my first time staying here in almost 10 years..... used to be my go to place in Nelspruit.

Unfortunately the quality and standard that I had come to know & love is no more.

Starting with the positives
1. I have always loved the pool
2. Its in a good and safe location
3. Most of staff is friendly
4. Comfortable, big bed we had

The not so positive
1. Room was directly across from breakfast area (we were in 8B) and it was the worst place to be.... very noisy in morning and no sense of privacy (if I opened the room people could basically see inside room)

2. Lighting in room was horrible and because of location of our room, we couldnt open curtains

3. Not enough closet space

4. Fridge wasnt working

5. The "christmas" type lights over the pool give it a "pub" feel and takes away from the equisiteness of the place

6. The bartender was unhappy that I didnt have cash to give him a tip, and refused for me to add it to the electronic payment (insinuating that hes not going to get the tip). He frankly gave me an attitude over the 2 days about this.

7. There was horrendous smell in the covered parking area (the one behind kitchen). It smelled like something had died. That whole area needs to be bleached and cleaned thoroughly.....

In general I dont think the venue has been looked after or kept up to the high standards I knew it for. What a pity because this is a beautiful place

Hot Pool out of order and very dirty. Showers leaked. Aircon not working properly. Room door was broken. Maintenance on property was poor. Front desk staff not always available and not all the food on the menue was available. First day of breakfast, the tables were not set, very little food left and knives and forks were dirty. Also glasses were dirty and very dusty. The spa was very nice.
