Excellent food, beautiful rooms. Great service. The ocean view and the beach is breath taking. The peace and ambiance is great. The sound from the breaking sea waves makes you want to stay long and enjoy the beach/ocean I highly recommend this great hotel

Had a short but wonderful stay after our safari. I went to celebrate my birthday. The dining room staff made it very special for me, with flowers on the table and a very large birtday cake along with all the fanfare and song, very memorable. We stayed in the sea view room which I think is worth the little extra,... More

They really do everything to make sure you're happy and all seem truly happy to work there. The area around the hotel is pretty calm, so they really make an... More

Dear Danielle, Thank you for your beautiful review and your lovely compliments. We use treated well water mixed with fresh water for shower water due to the severe fresh water shortage along the coast. While the water is treated and hygienic, the well water has a certain amount of salt due to its proximity to the ocean. We therefore provide... More
