I stayed here a few months back, and really enjoyed myself. It's a small quiet hotel with all the rooms facing the sea, and if you get the front rooms, you can actually see everything that is happening on the beach. The food was simple but good. The linens were new and rooms simply furnished but very clean. The showers... More

Having read a few of the other reviews I can only presume they must have stayed in a completely different place, as my friend and I had the most amazing fun filled two weeks. It was more of a reunion catch up holiday actually, as we hadn't seen each other in years, and we had the most amazing time, especially... More

With all due respect do something about your facility, upgrade it , get away with old stuff like the fridge and dustbins, mosquito nets etc. The waiters are plesant though especially Ndungu and the other guy Ngala. The hotel was so empty that i freaked out considering the room was so far from the reception i had to relocate asap.... More

We were there in August 2011 and we were astonished to discover that we were the only guests in the whole hotel, for the next 4 days we had the whole hotel literally to yourself (family of 4).

The hotel is an enigma to me. The hotel itself is very spacious with lovely surroundings, great rooms with quiet and effecient air conditioning, good views and very friendly staff.
