Just got back from a week at Chogogo. I have good and bad points. Some in between...
My wife and I booked a one bedroom apartment. I have to say it was roomy enough and the kitchen was stocked with everything, two burner stove, mini fridge with freezer compartment, coffee maker, tea pot, enough utensils to do light cooking chores. Could have used a microwave. We made breakfasts and sandwiches for lunch on the beach.
There was a daily shuttle to the grocery store but we did not use it as we had a car.
Balcony with doors from the bedroom and livingroom was nice.
The grounds were well kept and nice.
Renting a car from there is great! I got a brand new Suzuki POS for only $307 including insurance for the week. Very nice.
In room safe. Laundry on the grounds if you needed it.
The restraunt must have upgraded since previous reviews. I had a delicious grilled tuna steak and a pretty good breakfast. Ate around the island the rest of the time.
Staff seemed helpful.
Easy drive to Punda for shopping and good food.
Everything was very family freindly. Good for families and kid loving people.
Everything was very family freindly. Bad for couples who want peace and relaxation.
Pool was a kids madhouse. We were across the resort and could hear the screaming and squealing anytime we were there during the day. We did not spend time at the pool for this reason.
It is a hike to the beach if you are carrying anything. Jan Theil is very crowded and commercial not the laid back Caribbean vibe.
The resort is a little far away from the western beaches but if you know the way it's not so bad.
Worst point was the AC. I knew it was only in the bedroom but did not know it was hooked to a motion sensor. When sleeping and not moving the AC would turn off and we would wake in a pool of sweat. We tried doing the open doors and using the breeze thing but it is August and it is hot even at night. This was very disapointing. I understand conservation but I think a little weather seal on the doors and insulation would go further than having AC that turns off. Knowledge of the circuit board on a motion sensor could help this situation.
All together it is a great place for families. It is far more economical than a hotel. It is close to nightlife. It lacks a little of the Caribbean charm though.
