  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Beautiful hotel, fantastic stay.

    Really enjoyed this as a last few days on a hectic trip around Kenya and Tanzania camping and safari trip. This was an amazing relaxing experience in very nice accommodation and setting. Food was amazing and rooms are comfortable and very well cleaned and kept. Staff were very helpful and friendly at all times. Only downside it this is quite remote and takes quite a while to travel to other parts of the island due to low speed limits and poor roads. If you just want a lovely relaxing time in beautiful surroundings this is a great choice!

  • 8.0.Very good

    Nice quiet small hotel

    Very small hotel - only room for 38 guests. Pool area is large and spacious - beach area not usable as a beach as tide goes out and you can't sit there, but it's still beautiful as a view. Service was very nice - we had a few problems with our room. All inclusive is expensive for what you get. I would recommend bed and breakfast then paying just for what you eat.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Mare inesistente e quando c'era, impraticabile causa maree, informazioni Expedia fuorvianti e ingannevoli, prezzi in loco allucinanti, cibo modestissimo e scarso (colazione poverissima), servizio lentissimo, attrazioni serali rare. In sintesi cercavo riposo e tranquillità ed ho trovato una noia mortale. Vacanza sprecata.
