My husband and I stayed at the Pongwe Hotel for 2 nights in March, we loved our stay. The staff are so nice and welcoming and the food was fabulous. Upon arrival I had a heat rash on my face so they gave me some hydrocortisone cream which healed it up right away, for no charge. I had also contacted them ahead of time to let them know it was my husbands birthday while we were there . They set up a nice table on the beach and all of the restaurant staff came out singing a song with a cake for my husband, it was a real nice touch. The staff definitely went above and beyond for us. The only complaint we had was that there was no air conditioning in our room, we had a couple of fans but I think because it was rainy season it was super humid which made it hard for us to sleep. We are also Canadian so I wouldn't be surprised if people were more climatized than we would be. In all we would love to stay again!
