    I loved being so close to Uvongo beach. It is also really close to Margate and St Michael's beach (good for swimming too). It is clean. It is up on 3rd floor - stairs only. Car is safe in the basement

    Excellent well secured, well looked after complex, a stones throw from Uvungo's main swimming beach. Breathe of fresh air knowing you don't need to look for parking. Excellent service from staff, both booking, checking in as well as room services. Well equipped units.

    I also found it a bit strange. I really think they should've included that fee in the rate. Simpler and raises no questions.
