Pros: Location is the best
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The house is absolutely beautiful, throughout the house was relaxing music which made it feel very tranquil. The views throughout the whole house were insane and our balcony was so amazing. We enjoyed watching the stars at night, listening to the waves crashing. The breakfast was the best we've ever had, served by wonderful, friendly ladies. Thank you for having us!! We dream of returning one day!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: I looked it up and found Xanadu meant paradise, quite a precise description. As we entered the villa we were welcomed by a striking view of soft sandy beach and undulating waves of the Indian Ocean. The interior is decorated with dark wood furniture and upholstered sofas, large impressive oil paintings of wild cats and sculptures. It feels like staying at a friend's five-star home rather than a hotel. We had a spot to ourselves for breakfast, facing the beach every morning. Friendly and accommodating staff, welcoming and sophisticated hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed this piece of paradise as a highlight of our Garden Route journey.

Pros: Really lovely setting with amazing views of the beach (even saw dolphins at breakfast) and perfect for beach walks. Didn't matter that we had a room facing opposite the sea as there was plenty of comfortable seating outside and in the indoor lounge areas overlooking the sea. Room very clean and spacious. Breakfast also lovely! Wish we could have stayed longer!

7,0 Good
Pros: The host was super nice and welcoming, the room was very quiet, the bed was very comfortable and the view was amazing
Cons: It is really hard to write this because the host is such a nice person but he really needs to be aware of the following: 1. the room description says its 28 meters. maybe with the balcony it is.. the room itself is 8-9 meters. the smallest room i have ever been in. almost no place to stand up 2. everything in the room is super old - furniture, broken window shutters, bathroom, the towels were moist and looked at least 100 years old. 3. somewhat poor breakfast - not really tasty, there were no water/juice on the table, you have to specifically ask for it and it is not very convenient. there were not even napkins on the table.

Pros: The pool, breakfast, bathroom, bed
Cons: _
5,4 Okay
Pros: Location from the beach by car
Cons: It was mentioned that it was a 6 minute walk away but with two kids and on my own, walking alone under the bridge was unsafe and not the best advise from the host. The locals at the beach advised that it’s best to use a car which reiterated my instinct. The host is helpful and warm but does not make up for the fact that for the price it was sub standard. So for a local South African you can get better quality Rand for Rand from an alternate venue but if you an international traveler your $€¥ will find the accommodation quaint and charming.

Pros: Our host, Michael, was fantastic! He made us a lovely healthy breakfast every morning after asking us our likes and don't likes and we enjoyed chatting to him immensely. We even went for a walk on the beach with him and the two lovely dogs that he shares his life with. He was very accommodating and made sure we had every need taken care of. Michael, in my opinion, made a holiday venue go from fabulous to simply outstanding by his attention to detail and his immense love for the hospitality industry and the service he provides. Room was very spacious and comfortable and shower and bathroom area was amazing. We found the house very central to all our needs in the Garden Route and very close to a quiet and undisturbed beach that looks like, only the residents that live there, actually know about. The sound of the crashing waves at night also brought a very welcome relaxation. We loved our stay and have already made an enquiry about re-booking - but turns out he is fully booked and this honestly comes as no surprise. Simply excellent and must stay if you are going to the Garden Route!

Pros: We really liked Wilderness, especially the beach is perfect for long walks. The apartment is incredibly close to the beach! Check-in and check-out were extremely easy. Thank you! We have had cheaper apartments with newer furniture and interior along the Garden Route, but you probably pay more for the location.

3,0 Mediocre
Pros: The Views are very nice. It is very clean. The staff are friendly.
Cons: The housekeeping needs work. My wife got food poisoning from the Eggs Benedict Milanese. The food from the restaurant are a bit lacklustre. They charge $500 per night which is not on par with what you get.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: We had a wonderfully relaxing stay at the Views hotel. We had a couples massage which was reasonably priced and freely available. The staff were incredibly attentive and caring. Room was spacious and well decorated. Highly recommend a stay here.
Cons: Only one tiny disappointment was that we were offered a morning wake-up beverage to our room of our choosing. We chose coffee at 7am. They never arrived on each morning we stayed. But this really is a ‘first-world’ criticism. I wouldn’t want it to detract from the wonderful stay we had.

Pros: The house is absolutely beautiful, throughout the house was relaxing music which made it feel very tranquil. The views throughout the whole house were insane and our balcony was so amazing. We enjoyed watching the stars at night, listening to the waves crashing. The breakfast was the best we've ever had, served by wonderful, friendly ladies. Thank you for having us!! We dream of returning one day!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: I looked it up and found Xanadu meant paradise, quite a precise description. As we entered the villa we were welcomed by a striking view of soft sandy beach and undulating waves of the Indian Ocean. The interior is decorated with dark wood furniture and upholstered sofas, large impressive oil paintings of wild cats and sculptures. It feels like staying at a friend's five-star home rather than a hotel. We had a spot to ourselves for breakfast, facing the beach every morning. Friendly and accommodating staff, welcoming and sophisticated hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed this piece of paradise as a highlight of our Garden Route journey.

Pros: Really lovely setting with amazing views of the beach (even saw dolphins at breakfast) and perfect for beach walks. Didn't matter that we had a room facing opposite the sea as there was plenty of comfortable seating outside and in the indoor lounge areas overlooking the sea. Room very clean and spacious. Breakfast also lovely! Wish we could have stayed longer!
