A bit of African paradise
Beautiful 5 star resort. Great food, clean rooms, excellent service. Only concern is the very hard mattress. We stayed in the villa - an upgrade. The standard rooms were also very nice.

Pleasant hotel!
Pros -beautiful location -beautiful beach, with powder white sand -beautiful pool -staff are friendly -clean, spacious rooms -well maintained hotel Cons -some service related issues e.g requested items such as a laundry bag / clothing iron - items either never arrived at the unit at all, or came after a unreasonably long period -food was average -was forced to pay $70 for a Xmas dinner. This was in the booking fine print. Guests should have the option to opt out, as not all guests would opt to attend the dinner. Tips - be sure to make a reservation at the African resturant -unlike other hotels, when booking half board, the hotel only offers water as a free drink during supper. Juices and soft drinks are charged for On the whole, pleasent experience.
