Best things about resort: Swimming pools, Gardens, Adjacent to Indian Ocean and white sands When we arrived at the resort, we were given room #125. Unit #125, however, 1) lacked a functional air conditioner, athough the outside temperature was 91 degrees F; 2) there was no hot water; 3) the toilet didn't work, so the turds stayed in it; 4)...

Karibuni Villas personnel were really friendly and helpful and they tried to make you feel comfortable. Their variety of different foods in restaurants were not that wide, but it is kind of understandable, when most of people were cooking their meals in Villas.

Finally a change of management wish you Good luck!!! nice sea view, nice beach, one of the biggest complex in the North Coast in 20 years! clean and environment friendly, very peaceful. Graceful coconut palms sway in the breeze, with the sun shinning on the blue waters. A very uncongested privacy and atlast a continental environment for all!

This is a self catering one-bedroomed villa right next to the beach. The most beautiful place and peaceful too. When you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this is the place to be. I loved it! Was well served by <alphacharlieinc@yahoo.com>
