I have stayed at Al Villa Romantica Spiaggia twice in the past- in both 2005 and 2008 but upon our return this year, it was with sadness that we noticed how the service, quality of the rooms and maintenance of the propery had gone down. From booking to arrival- we had a difficult time. We booked in April for our trip in December for a group of 5 couples. Unfortunately the person who made our bookings- a friendly and helpful lady named Walda- had resigned by the time of our arrival. The owner Paul had mixed up our bookings and (although it ended up getting sorted) he had cancelled 1 couples bookings. From there- drains were blocked and smelling, rooms had no air on despite this being promised and we even found dirty(ex guests) underpants in a drawer.we noticed the freshly washed towels hanging over a dirty wall to dry instead of a washing line as well.
Loveness- the lady who cleaned the rooms and made breakfast was lovely and helpful but this was ruined by the attitude shown by Paul the owner when we asked for help with our complaints.he was rude and told us that it's only the "locals" that complain.
We heard that he was selling the bnb and we just hope that the next owners are able to restore it to what it once was, as location wise, it's hard to beat.

we had booked to stay in Al villa Romantica's other property La Montagna but on arrival were redirected to La Spiaggia without explanation.The room we were allocated was spacious with a large bathroom and balcony overlooking one of the streets from the beach road.The decor was tired and in need to a refit.Curtains were torn ,bed was squeaky,Jacuzzi bath plug didnt fit properly etc.There was a kettle but no tea.coffee making facilities in the room.
Breakfast was mediocre (certainly not full english) and the dining room was tired,well worn furniture,table clothes with stains,cheap cereals and orange juice,instant coffee
There was a small swimming pool but even after they removed the floating leaves the water look dirty and uninviting.Not the luxury we had been expecting

Room Tip: my only suggestion is try elsewhere

Al Villa Romantica is in one word "Fantastic". This was my second trip in same year. My wife and I were there in February and loved it so much that we brought 5 additional family members and we stayed for most of December 2010. Paul and his staff go out of their way to insure that we are 100% pleased. Paul insured that in addition to all of our hotel needs being me he booked daily tours throughout the valley to insure that our trip was enjoyable (shark fishing, cape tour and numerous wine locations). The staff....is by far the best I have seen..."Only" goes out of her way to may your room and meals are pleaseant and fit your schedule. The View....there is none better...waking up and having breakfast on the balcony can not be beat...and I live in Spain. All I can say is we will be back again...and we will only stay with Paul. Thanks for yet another wonderful stay.

I have just returned from staying in this guesthouse (Dec 09 - Jan 10) for 4 nights with a group of friends. We were very pleasantly surprised having read the earlier reviews beforehand. We had a most enjoyable stay. There have clearly been many changes made since the earlier comments. In particular, all of the sheets & towels etc. were new and it seemed as if other renovations had been recently carried out. The bathroom was huge with a large shower and jacuzzi bath. The rooms were spotless.

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and they booked restaurants and taxis for us on a number of occasions. We were given breakfast and other refreshments outside of the normal hours for breakfast. They accommodated all of our requests, nothing was a problem and we felt v much at home during our stay.

The location is superb - only a short walk from the main street whereas a lot of the other accomodation seems to be up the hills behind Camps Bay.

The only downside was that the garden area is small and v shaded but at a stone's throw from the beach, this really did not matter.

In terms of South African prices, I would consider it to be a little bit expensive but that is compared with hotels in different locations in SA at different times. This was Camps Bay at peak season so high prices are to be expected. Overall I was v pleased that we stayed here.
