8.4.Very good.
  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This boutique hotel has a beautiful pool, ample seating and a great restaurant right on the beach. The whitewashed buildings are stunning. The beach is public but there are never a lot of people on it. The beds look deceivingly hard but are actually very comfortable. The rooms are pretty and clean, and all have ocean views. The food was fantastic and reasonably priced compared to other resorts we’ve stayed at on the island. The staff were friendly - Youngman and Samson in particular. Right next to the hotel, you can find Dongwe Sport, who have a range of water sports and activities close to the hotel. We recommend them. Overall, enjoyable stay and great value.

    A prosaic place

    A prosaic place that is functional for the purposes of the plain, frills-free, undisturbed beach holiday. The rooms are plain but functional, the pool site is pleasant and fun, and the beach naturally exquisite.

    bel endroit

    le personnel est très bien très gentil et réactif, la plage est belle naturelle et nettoyée chaque matin des algues ce qui n'est pas toujours fait pour les hôtels à côté. la nourriture est bonne et de qualité. La seule chose qui m'a gênée c'est la literie franchement très dure pour mon dos et à l'inverse des oreillers trop mous.

    Ganska fräscht hotell. Bra personal. Litet isolerat och tyst på kvällarna.

    Skuffende dårlig strand.

    En helt ubrukelig strand / beach det meste av dagen, utenom high tide mellom 13.00 og 15.00, dog fortsatt full av tang og annet plantemateriale. Svært høye priser i restauranten. Få alternativer i nærheten. En øl f eks kostet her det dobbelte av hva den kostet på Veskystens Kendwa Beach.

    Sol o strand

    Mycket trevligt ställe om man gillar att lapa sol på stranden och bada. Fin strand. Enda nackdelen är att den inte är privat så man får va beredd på människor som vill sälja prylar och utflykter. Dock kan man ligga på hotellets mark o bara va på stranden när man ska bada då hotellet gränsar till stranden. På hotellets mark får man va ifred. Hotellet va fint o personalen mycket trevlig. Det man kan klaga på är att sängen va stenhård och att det enligt hotellet skulle finnas TV på rummet, det gjorde det inte. WIFI funkade heller inte så bra på rummet. I närområdet finns egentligen ingenting annat. Så detta ställe är till för folk som bara vill slappa, sola o bada. Då passar det utmärkt.

    Ett trevligt hotell med utmärkt läge direkt vid havet. Personalen var genomgående vänliga och hjälpsamma. Sett som en resort-anläggning var allt toppen!

    Fantastiskt läge. Sämre mat.

    Fantastiskt läge. Underbar och lugn strand med turkost vatten. Wi-fi överallt. Ok rum. Hade ett familjerum med två rum och stort badrum. Badrummet behöver uppdateras. Fläkt och AC som fungerade fint. Det sämsta var maten som inte var bra alls.
