This place has everything going for it: great cabin, great food, nice pool and helpful staff! However, the location is a bit off, as the hostel is located quite isolated. 10 minutes walk to the beach, 30 minutes to Paje. So if you don't mind a bit of a walk, this place is highly recommendable.

Big dissapointed. Staying Demani Lodge for 3 nights February 2015. Of corse there are some advantages: resonable price, nice swimmingpool, clean bathrooms and toilets, overall good food (small portions). Time for things that make me dissapointed: totally didn't feel good vibes, staff is rather uninterested, one day i have ordered drink which was served in 300cl cup, next day ordered... More

From asking questions about prices and being charged differently, to being ignored or denied the use of basic things such as a bucket of water to soak a stained shirt in, our experience at Demani was less than pleasurable. It's a wonderful spot, with reasonable amenities for an okay price, but the staff's complacent attitude was off putting from the... More

Great atmosphere and the owner is wonderful very friendly. I did not stay in a room I just visited three days in a row and... More

In these 5 days spent there we felt as relaxed as never, the staff is very young, kind, funny and helpful, the pool in the middle of Lodge awesome, the... More

We really enjoyed our stay. Most of the food is great but often takes some time which is OK when you know the routine. Really nice staff, relaxed atmosphere. The pool is awesome.. The place is not flawless but nice and clean and we felt that any problem mentioned was taken seriously and taken care of. The bar is not... More
