This establishment is great value for money. It's old and could do with a revamp but then you would pay so much more. It's across the road from the sea, within walking distance to the shops and a perfect position to walk along the coastline

Stayed here for 10 days. Everything you need for a self catering stay is provided. Communal BBQ area was fantastic. Close proximity to everything in Hermanus and walking distance to everything you need. My only downside was the weather which no one can control. Fantastic stay and will be booking and recommending to everyone I know.

Definitely worthwile to rather spend extra few Rands and go for the 4 or 6 sleeper units. With these units you get a great sea view and ample space around you. 2 sleeper units will let you think of backpacker units. Overall the venue is well located and walking distance from everything, no wifi though

Clean and neat place but very basic, no luxury but when paying such a low price it is good value for money. Staff were friendly and helpful. We had a two bed roomed unit with two bathrooms, lounge, dining room and kitchen in one with an enclosed garden/braai area. Great for children as the area is totally enclosed. We enjoyed... More

If you need a place to sleep, going out to work and just come back on time to sleep again, this is the place for you. Don't expect a romantic Greek Eiland where you and your love one can celebrate your wedding aneversery. Then don't even try to launch a complaint as the manager/owner will rationalize about everything. Just told... More

On our arrival on friday we were greeted by to friendly receptionists. Although we were a little early, house keeping was called and we were able to check in. Very good first impression. We were very comfortable and cozy in our little appartment, which was very clean. Could not find much fault, however one thing we would improve is the... More

A view to die for. Very central. Park your car and walk wherever you want to be. Furniture in apartment needs attention. Carpet on staircase can be replaced. I guess as soon as apartments are renovated,one wont get away with the cheap rates that Esplanade offers xxx

We were absolutely shocked at this place....we checked in and out within 30 minutes. Don't be fooled at all by the advertising material. Dirty, smelly, dated, backyard rooms (room 26)....enter here if you dare. It's a rip off and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. On top of this, we were not offered a refund...episode to be continued.

To view the atrocious accommodation that in no way lived up to its charming description. Greek isle - not. Filthy flea pit would be more accurate. Kiddie friendly - yes perhaps if you're intending them to canon headlong down the precarious stairs and develop a dire lung infection from the bathroom mildew. Shocking misrepresentation!

The premises are very well located close to good restaurants etc. the views from the front units are stunning. The photos on the web page are certainly very misleading. The unit is damp with mildew and the linen and towels are threadbare. Every morning there was no hot water so you need to take a cold shower.there is also very... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Enjoy a relaxed, homely environment, breathtaking views and above all, value for money! The Greek Isle atmosphere and decor compliments the vacation ambience and the furnishings are definitely "kiddie-friendly". So you can sit back, slow down and enjoy the beautiful view! The complex has a total of 25 fully contained self-catering units - ranging from spacious duplex units to cosily tucked-away apartments for two, to a charming original little fisherman's cottage. All have their own courtyards and barbeque, except for the two 'backpackers' apartments. ... more   less
