Michamwi, s place to relax.
A great small little hotel, if looking for a place where to relax you found your place, not much to do more than doing nothing. Pictures on Hotels.com are genuine, great management as well as staff. The only thing that travelers must be aware of it that the tide is clearly not to be neglected, bring reef shoes. If looking for more action it’s just a seven minutes walk and you find a hip beach bar where you also can rent jet skis for example.

We had a wonderful 4 night/5 day stay at this property. With only 20 rooms, you got very personalized service and all the staff were very friendly and helpful, and compliments to the chef as the food was great! If you are looking for a nice quiet place to relax and appreciate the sunset this is the place. Although the beaches are public, we felt like we had the place entirely to ourselves, never had to fight or rush for beach chairs/loungers.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Staff and management were very friendly and accommodating. We were a family of 4 with two small boys who are picky eaters. The staff accommodated special kids meal request anytime during our stay. Beach is beautiful and the water is very warm. The pool is a nice break, very clean and warm as well. I communicated with the hotel prior to our arrival and always received a quick response. We didn't venture far from the hotel beach however other guests took advantage of various off-site activities. Keep in mind there is only hotel laundry services so pack accordingly and no market or store that is within walking distance to get snacks etc if you are travelling with children. The hotel arranged transit to and from the airport with no issues.
