Great view. The rest was average.

It was mostly pleasant, except the fact that the doors kept blowing shut. One needs to have a wind draft to cool down the place, so windows are open on both ends of the apartment. The cleanliness was below average when we arrived, as we had unpleasant surprises under the beds. The fact that there is a daily cleaner is convenient. Other than that, the view is great from all rooms. It does take a while to get to a beach; however, so wouldn't recommend for anyone wanting to frequent the beach multiple times a day.

I'm so sorry you feel that way. All information was clearly available on the web about the beaches. Villa Royale is not close to a main swimming beach in Ballito, but we do have a private beach with some rock pools.

Lovely stay with a beautiful view.

We were promised direct entry to a private beach, however, we were very disappointed to find this entrance had been blocked off. This was one of the main reasons we booked at Villa Royale. Guests need to be aware of this before booking.

Thank you for the feedback.
There must have been something dangerous on the beach for the security to close the access. The feedback was forwarded to the management of Villa Royale.

Pragtige uitsig. Woonstel baie gerieflik.

Toegang tot strand 'n uitdaging vir mense met gesondheids probleme, maar pragtige uitsig oor see vanaf woonstel. Woonstel baie gerieflik.

Villa Royale is gelee op 'n rots laag en die toegang na die strand is baie styl. Baie dankie vir die resensie vir die woonstel. Die see uitsig is wonderlik vanaf die woonstel.

Baie nice woonstel met 'n fantastiese uitsig en geriewe.

Parkering effe moeilik maar nadat ons dit gewoond geraak het was dit nie 'n probleem nie. Die ketel het wel die krag laat trip so ek sit dit net op rekord omdat ek nie 'n nuwe ketel wil koop nie.

Very nice apartment with a fantastic view and amenities.

Parking a bit difficult but after we got used to it it wasn't a problem. The boiler did trip the power so I'm just putting it on record because I don't want to buy a new boiler.

The worst accommodation that I have stayed in on KZN North coast.

Very poorly maintained unit. Had to leave the place 2 days earlier and move to another place at an additional cost. Will definitely not recommend to anyone. The unit requires serious attention, especially the unbearable in the kitchen of all place. Would really appreciate some sort of compensation or refund.

Needs a serious revamp and clean.

The area and location is stunning. The unit itself needs tons of work and cleaning. The kettle, extractor fan, fridge were filthy.

Villa Royale 402 's response

Good morning Tammy

Thank you for your feedback. I will address this with the cleaners as definitely not acceptable
We look forward to you booking with us again

Ideaal vir 'n see-vakansie.

Dankie, ek is baie tevrede en het geen probleme ondervind. Het die see in my ore die hele nag baie geniet, asook die dolfyne elke oggend wat verby swem die sonsopkoms oor die see.

Ideal for a seaside holiday.

Thank you, I am very satisfied and have had no problems. Enjoyed the sea in my ears all night, as well as the dolphins swimming past the sunrise over the sea every morning.

Eenheid kort opgradering.

Alhoewel die eenheid netjies is kort dit opgradering. Meeste van die vloerteëls is gekraak. Die badkamers is oud en die gordyne hang aan skroewe. Fantastiese ligging en uitsig oor die see. Die kompleks is baie netjies en skoon.

Unit in need of upgradeing.

Although the unit is neat, it needs an upgrade. Most of the floor tiles are cracked. The bathrooms are old and the curtains hang on screws. Fantastic location and sea views. The complex is very neat and clean.

Aanvaarbaar.

Ons het baie lekker vakansie gehou by Villa Royale 402, net so paar goedjies waaraan aandag gegee moet word is die badkamers wat dringend 'n opgradering nodig het, die toiletsitplek in die hoofslaapkamer se badkamer was stukkend, en dis baie vuil tussen die muur en wasmasjien en tuimeldroër in die eerste badkamer. Die ligging van die plek is wel perfek en ons het dit baie geniet om die son oor die see elke oggend te sien opkom, asook die dolfyne. Maar die plastiek stoepmeubels het ook hulle dae gehad en is baie verweer, die koffiemasjien in die kombuis is vol muf. En die parkering onder is 'n nagmerrie as mens jou kar hoog ag. Verder was alles goed gewees.

Acceptable.

We had a very nice holiday at Villa Royale 402, only a few things that need attention are the bathrooms that urgently need an upgrade, the toilet seat in the master bedroom bathroom was broken, and there is a lot of dirt between the wall and washing machine and tumble dryer in the first bathroom. The location of the place is perfect and we really enjoyed seeing the sun rise over the sea every morning, as well as the dolphins. But the plastic patio furniture has also had its days and is very worn, the coffee machine in the kitchen is full of mould. And the parking below is a nightmare if you value your car. Other than that, everything was good.

Good day Adelene,

Your comments have been addressed via email correspondence, but please allow me to address them in the public domain for future guests to take note of.

1. Regarding the coffee maker: When doing my check, I did not see any mould, but this could have been cleaned after your departure. I did check inside the machine as well.

2. We replaced one toilet seat on 27 March and another one on 9 April. When the toilet seat broke during your stay, it should have been reported by the cleaners and replaced immediately and not only after your departure.

3. I moved the washing machine and tumble dryer, and found a ladder and a squeegee, but the area was not dirty, so could have been cleaned with the departure as well.

4. I agree the patio furniture needs an upgrade and the parking is very difficult indeed.

I look forward to hearing from you again.

Kind Regards,
Karen

Very peaceful and clean place. To take a walk to the beach is big problem, however.

My only problem was walking to the beach. Coming from Johannesburg walking at the beach is great.

Villa Royale 402 's response

Good afternoon Dan,

Thank you for your feedback, and we look forward to hearing from you again.

The steps down to the beach are rather steep, but the beach itself offers a truly great walk.

Kind regards,

Relaxing.

Dit was baie lekker, goed gerus, die uitsig is pragtig. Dit sal baie beter wees as die eienaar 'n klein DStv-pakket in die woonstel kan sit, want ons het klein kinders en kon nie buite gaan stap het deur die nag nie. Het ook nie ons eie pakket gebring nie omdat ons 'n Explora het.

Villa Royale 402 's response

Dankie vir die mooi resensie Zenobia.

Ek stem saam, dit sal beter wees as daar 'n dekodeerder in die eenheid is. Ek het weer die eienaar gevra om dit te oorweeg.

Groete tot volgende keer.
Karen

Beautiful view, but parking is shocking and one cannot reach the beach.

The unit has a beautiful view, but parking and beach access is shocking! A very, very narrow path that is next to a deep ditch gives access to the beach. Couldn't use this at all. Unit is not at all suitable for older people or person who is disabled. No wheelchair parking and requests for other parking fell on deaf ears.
