1/5 Terrible

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service
Arrived in Africa to be told we had no booking!!!!
Booked, confirmed and secured via with all details provided as requested at time of booking!! Agreed to pay in full at location, as per available options!! However the booking was ''cancelled'' by the owner / manageress as apparently two emails requesting a 50% deposit were sent, NO other contact was attempted even though telephone details were given - this was not specified at the time of booking!!! Very disappointing and very poor service, clearly does not let suppliers know the agreed booking terms - All this after I received an email on the 16th December confirming booking from Lucky we knew the area!!!! Disgusting service from - will never use EVER again!!!!

Nice beach
Interesting to stay in the ex-president's villa. The view to the sea is partly blocked by big houses but apart from that the room was very big and cozy.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
It was lovely thank you, the lady that runs the place is very friendly and understanding. The little daughter makes a lot of noise though in the morning and nothing gets done about that. Other than that, all is fine.
