Stayed for 5 nights having spent the previous week on safari and what a great way to relax. Only 7 bungalows on site and we pretty much had the pool to ourselves. Went on a couple of excursions, snorkelling and white snapper bbq over coconut husks was definitely a highlight. Also lovely beach area with safe bathing. Food was excellent and kitchen was more than happy to provide alternatives if anyone fancied a change from the wonderful seafood dishes.
What really made the stay for us was Marta and the team who could not have done more to ensure we enjoyed our stay. From the waiting staff to chambermaids and trip organisers to the massai nightwatchman, pool side to gardener, every single member of the team was always on hand with a happy and smiling "jambo". A truly magical experience.
