Stayed at Areena as part of a tour group loved the look of the place and the accommodation was very comfortable. They have an fantastic bar with great staff and I even got to know their giraffe Abby. Only down side was there was no activities available to do but canoeing because there was only one guide available and he was busy with a group of school children who had already booked. Because we did not have any other transport we were stuck at the resort with not much to do. The Manager offered to make sure this did not happen next time we visited however I'm from Australia I may not be back. Was really looking forward to the quad biking.
