Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Facilities were always clean and tidy, and were well maintained. Beach villa (amazing view of the beach!) cleaned twice daiily and always nicely made up with flower decorations. Very comfortable beds. Local vendors, although very friendly, tend to mob guests who venture out onto the beach/ walk to the reef, and are extremely persistant. Food can become somewhat repetitive and could do with more variety.

Cons: Faster cleaning service and stronger drinks.
Nice hotel. The food was better than we expected, though the desserts could be better. The staff was very kind. The talent show one evening felt a bit like a minstrel show. The drinks could be stronger and better made.

This hotel is amazing! The food is lovely, the staff are friendly and best of all it’s a very family friendly hotel. The only issue we had was that the bedding was minimal it was really cold in the room and it would have been great if there was a blanket as well as the bed sheet on the bed. Other than that it was an amazing stay and I would gladly go back again.

Peaceful friendly relaxing

Posted Jul 6, 2018 on Hotels
Very welcoming friendly and relaxing place to stay Without doubt this is the friendliest hotel I have stayed at. Every single member of staff from the gardeners to Ester at the reception, just lovely, friendly people - nothing was too much trouble. The hotel was clean and they put on a big screen to show the World Cup games for those interested. Food (buffet included for breakfast lunch and dinner) and drinks are plentiful and for those who like seafood you can book to have it at the beach restaurant at extra cost. Lots of places to relax and read - could do with some more sun beds. Trips outside the hotel are really expensive but that is the same from all the hotels not just this one. Not sure the high cost of the day trips are justified and we certainly didn’t do as much as we would have done had the prices been more realistic. Evening entertainment included from acrobatic shows to dancing and Swahili lessons. Table tennis, pool table and the dreaded WiiU and PS4 which were a god send on rainy days.
