We stayed here for six nights, it is a nice place, with beautiful gardens, less noise compared to the areas along the beach and very clean. Good for relaxing and is affordable compared to other hotels around. Breakfast was very nice, the room had working AC and nice balcony but aren't very spacious though.
About 3mins away from the beach where you can organise for sunset cruise and day trip to go for snorkelling at mnemnba island. The staff are very polite and kind, always smiling and ready to give you information.
However had some small areas been looked into they would've made our stay better: a few things had broken down in our bathroom and even after notifying the management they weren't fixed. Only 2 or 3 tv channels were available, we were asked everyday to wait for subscription to be renewed until when we left, safe wasn't working and only had a manual in chinese, wifi was only available in the dining room. We had to ask for an extra towel and bedsheet almost every day.
There's a few of restaurants in the area with good food and fairly priced.
