The Location suited our needs and very close to a walk on the Beach. Lovely and comforting with beautiful garden views as well. Quiet area which contributes to a very tranquil and peaceful stay over no matter how long.

We were only at A Villa de Mer for one night, but what we experienced was very pleasant. The rooms are clean and well appointed. I should imagine that it would be lovely for a holiday as it is directly opposite the beach. Very nice.

This is an excellent B&B. Memory could not have been more helpful with accommodating our family of ten including young school-age children. They loved the pool! Everything was great and the sandy beach only metres away.

What a pleasure it was to accommodate your lovely family. it was good to see how much fun the children had at the pool. a far cry from being stuck indoors behind a play station.
trust we will be seeing you again in the not so distant future.

Me and my wife stayed at A Villa de Mer for two nigths. Room was clean and nice. We missed an aircon in our room and the celing fans did not work. Breakfast was nice and the freshly baked muffins was amazing.

Room Tip: Room 5 was near the office so try to avoid

Thank you for your kind words. Regarding the ceiling fans, they are all new and in working condition. we find that often our guests switch the fan switch off on the wall and then use the portable control. It is such a pity that you did not ask a staff member to assist you. we
strive to keep our guests comfortable. Hopefully, when next you are in the area, we can upgrade you to compensate for your discomfort.
