Very friendly and helpful staff, great food with a lot of options to choose from. Don't be afraid of Masaai around the beach. They learned us a lot about their lifestyle and culture. Not sure about the 5* rating though.

The staff was very friendly, also too friendly sometimes, always asking how you have slept, was the dinner good and so on. One evening we ate at Vanilla Seafood restaurant.... More

Facilities around the pools are not modern, but give a very authentic feel to the place, so really enjoyed that as well. Rooms have... More
