A nice place where all staff is eager to help and give advices. The big living-room was ideal for our kids to play! We really enjoyed fresh seafood delivered every day at our doorstep. This is a great place to relax after safaris experience.

Had a fabulous 8 night stay in one of the villas. The villa was kitted out with everything we could have wanted and more...microwave, toaster, TV and DVD player to name but a few. It was comfortable, clean and very luxurious. The staff, particularly Jessy were great and really wanted to make our holiday the best ever. If you want... More
