Excellent place to stay if you are shark cage diving. Staff helpful. Didn't get breakfast because went early to the harbour and was fed here. When wifi would not work in my room (or anywhere else) I was allowed to use the computer at reception to check emails, maps, etc.

Great guesthouse and very good value for money. Perfectly located if you are planning to go shark cage diving locally. Staff are very helpful and the guesthouse itself is clean, comfortable, and has great ocean views.

The road right in front of the guesthouse is very busy presenting a real danger for small children. The inter leading doors...

We stayed at Aire del Mare for two nights in order to do a shark dive. We stayed in the self-catering room, as it was the only one available. While the accommodation was just o.k. and the value was very good, the staff - especially Annette - was outstanding. She was friendly and helpful, assisting us with a number of...
