The Resort is blended in nature to the extend that birds and pretty small African monkey (quite inoffensive) wander within the lush well maintained garden full of rare tropical exotic trees. Birds of different varieties share the space with their beautiful... More

I wouldn’t drink the water unless it came from a bottle though. The room was traditional lock and key rather than... More

The cleaning team couldn't be bothered cleaning my bathroom. To make it worse my chicken penne came swimming in oil!... More

This hotell has a very nice spa. The hamam is something I am still thinking about. The price of the treatments in the spa is also greate as this is a very nice hotel. The breakfast was also very nice, served outside.

I have to say that generally, we really enjoyed our... More

I think it is understaffed a bit maybe because this is the off-season period. Most Beautiful hotel ...the rooms are the best(looks like am sleeping on... More
