The hotel is not up to the 4 star rating and suffers from very poor rooms, untrained staff, repeated and recycled food. The good is the natural beach and the lovely pools. Some staff are gems and carry this hotel. So good holiday outside the...More

Very good value for the rates they charge. Staff is friendly and the food options are plenty. Massive pools make the resort a great relaxation spot and the beach is just unbeatable. Drink options in the all inclusive have some wines and local spirits .....More

About
Description
This dramatic hotel with its fantastic pools and beautiful beach is the perfect spot to relax after a safari… or simply visit to relax! The warm and very African feel of the hotel with comfortable rooms, well More appointed bathrooms and selection of restaurants offers guests plenty of places to lounge in the sun and almost as many shady spots to enjoy a bit of a breeze and a good book. All rooms have quiet, split unit air conditioners, televisions, mini fridges and coffee and tea making facilities. There is a safe (chargeable) in each room and a business center located in the main building with internet or wifi access in public areas. The drama of the huge, traditional makuti (thatched) roof in the main restaurant offers the Chef a terrific showcase for a varied selection of local and international dishes on the buffet or you could indulge at one of the a la carte restaurants (chargeable) for a special occasion or just a quiet evening for two.
