Worst place so far !!! Horrible.
Stay away from this hotel..Stayed for 2 dayz..Empty hotel, less variation in breakfast offer. Less welcoming staff, specially at the restaurant. Live Cockroaches on the food as we had a breakfast. Outdated and broken coffee kettle, Electricity went so water anf we were not able to shower.. Horrible experience. We went to breakfast and being told "no coffee due to lack of electricity power. the pool was good.. but the management is tired and see no future in this business, we think.

A little gem off the beaten path
Mawe Resort is a great place if you want to get off the beaten path and do nothing but enjoy the beautiful Indian Ocean. It’s a bit isolated from town, but then then you’re generally going to come here to do nothing but relax. The service is very attentive, the ambiance is super and the food is decent. While it’s not on a beach, it’s right on the ocean which can be a easily and safely accessed through a stairway through a small cliff. Two areas for improvement would be to install more formidable air conditioning in the guest rooms and to arrange group transport to the airport for guests on the same flight.

Nice design, small boutique hotel The "Sea View" Suites might be considered as "Sea Glimpse" The AC's in both Suites we occupied produced only noise but no cold air, forget the restaurant

Facilities were very nice. Food was good. Service good. Location is somewhat remote, but after we found stairs leading below the cliff that led to the beach, it didn't mater. Enjoyed our stay very much.

Mawe Resort is very comfortable and relaxing.
Mawe is a great place for couples who want a comfortable and private stay away from the busier parts of the coast.
