My husband and I stayed here, at the Gouna Suite, for 4 nights in late December during our South Africa tour. We travel a lot all over the world and this was by far the best boutique hotel we ever stayed in. The whole property is beautifully decorated. Our luxurious 5+++ suites was spacious, spotless with amazing views of the lagoon and the heads. The staff was extremely friendly and helped us tremendously with last minute booking of activities and restaurants. Breakfasts, served at our private balcony, were a treat and a great start for our days here. Everything was very fresh, well flavored and beautifully presented. We felt the perfect attention to details from early morning. When we returned to our suite in the evenings we always found fresh new flowers and different surprises: Chocolates, fresh fruits, liquor, a bottle of wine, and more. We would go back to South Africa just to stay and relax in Villa Afrikana. Many thanks to the owners, Rossano and Bianca, and to their great staff: Ona, Beauty, Lovemore, Talent, and the rest of the staff, for making our stay so incredible

Room Tip: All rooms have a great view but better to stay on the upper floors

Stayed here 4 nights in December with my wife during our 2 week tour of the Garden Route. Outstanding service, owners and staff are constantly waiting on you!
Breakfasts were brilliant. A fantastic place to return after our day trips in the area. We also spent a day relaxing here which was great.
Thank you again Ross, Bianca and all staff.

The lovely decorated room and the bathroom are spacious. Great veranda and great view to the complete lagoon area. Everything is super clean and luxurious. Built on a hill side there are stairways to the rooms. Breakfast is first class, superb service. Afternoon tea with cakes are served daily. The staff is very, very polite and helpful. The maid put fresh flowers on our room table every day. Outdoor pool is well maintenanced as well as the whole plot. Parking lot is a bit narrow. It takes only a 5 minutes car ride to the waterfront. We suggest "The Anchorage" for dinner. Don't forget the tipp for the parking attendant there!

We recently spent three nights here and experienced the most superb service ever from delightful and friendly staff. A beautiful location and very spacious room. Afternoon tea with cake was served daily and drinks between 19.00 and 20.00. On our first evening when it was raining, a smiling faced member of staff brought drinks and nibbles to our room “to cheer us up”!

A minor comment, we felt there was an elephant staying in the room above us on our first two nights and a smaller one on our third night! A soundproofing problem! However. This did not detract from a wonderful stay. On our departure, we noticed that our hire car had been cleaned overnight! Another lovely treat!

Room Tip: Possibly choose a room/suite with no room above it? All have stunning views across to the bay.
