We've stayed here for a weekend and had a really good stay for a good price. The restaurant has a nice view and the buffet serves good and a lot of different foods. Prices in the restaurant are pretty high. The bar Negative: the see is not very good accessible.

We stayed in standard... More

My family and I had a great holiday and were very impressed with the hospitality from the staff and especially the very friendly manager Silvana. A very nice resort to stay at with family and friends. A very well managed place. Another thank you to Silvana

According to African standard very good hotel. Beautiful jetty bar. Nice warm sea water. Unfortunately practically no reef for snorkling. Very friendly personnel. Lots of non-expensive excursions. Very good location: little rain.

Let me start by saying, I feel they deserve full marks rating.(Reason for 4 points will be revealed, later...) We went with the "All Inclusive" deal, which was the best decision ever.
