the staff at the reception was so friendly and helpful, the apartment is clean, lots of space. Great view to the bay, you have to drive down to go to a restaurant, no walking possibility. A nice stay for one night.

We stayed at the Ilita Lodge for three nights but would have loved to stay longer! The staff, without exception, was super friendly and did everything to make our visit as beautiful as possible. The breakfast was lovely. You can even sit outside to enjoy the fantastic view. Hope to come back soon!

People called to say that we had left behind clothes in the one cupboard. Friendly staff and great location. Braai area could have a table closer by. Would recommend for a visit. Rooms were big enough. Wifi not adequate to the children's liking.
