We were asked if we would like a drink delivered to our room and promptly had a bottle of Champagne delivered (maybe because it was our anniversary?) The...

We recently spent 5 nights at the Villa Afrikana and loved it there. The greeting was very warm, and as the days progressed we realised what delightful people Bianca and Ross are, as were all their staff. We stayed in the Matarolli Suite, which I believe is the only one without a balcony, which we would have preferred but it...
