Jacaranda is very good with tip top service, nicely maintained swimming pools, good room service and generally excellent service and reception. The gym is also well furnished and the staff also very friendly. I would highly recommend for a family with or without children.

It is also well located for safaris meaning that... More

Been there three times, relaxation, serenity and ambiance great. The beach is perfect and not too crowded. Improve the food to offer more than Italian dishes...we are Kenyan. The rooms are so spacious and well set making you feel so.......well taken care of. I would recommend this to any traveller looking for a total body and mind rejuvenation. Well done... More
