We were booked to stay at Days at Sea for 2 weeks for our Honeymoon. Bearing in mind that there were always only a maximum of 4 guests there at any given point, our breakfast order was wrong 5 times! There was NO internet connectivity most days. The few days where we could get internet, we had to sit on...

The whole Days At Sea Team takes reviews very seriously and I - as the owner- follow up each complaint personally. In your case I have to clarify some points in all respect. You booked your Suite for 10 days not for two weeks. Unfortunately the weather was very bad during your whole stay, which might explain your frustration. So...

Amazing escape for our family. We took three room and every day, meal, room was perfect. European feel and style. Stunning beach. Better food than the finest of my home in New York. Caring staff led by owner / host / head chef Guido. This is something truly unique that you cannot miss.

We enjoyed having you and your family as our guests and of course we are very grateful for your kind compliments. Thank you for bringing so much joy to our lodge.

Our stay at Days at Sea was nothing short of a dream. The style, art, decor, attention to detail, the love, passion and pleasure that Guido and Annette have infused in this secluded boutique lodge are unparalelled. I recommend a lengthy stay. Relax, and let your hosts take care of everything. Really really magnificent. Thank you! Giuseppe & Claire Soffietti

We had a wonderful stay at Days at Sea in Trafalgar SA !! The location is great, with a full view of the Ocean from our terrace and to the pool in the garden. We loved the interior of the rooms and public area's. Simply beautiful with great staff, a elicious breakfast and superb diner, for sure 5 stars.
