Very cozy and nice place. We had a great view to the ocean and actually it's great that they have wifi that worked EVEN ON THE BEACH!
We had some problems with the water but that is beacuse we lived on the 2nd floor i guess. Our friends who lived on the first - was great!
BTW taxi from and to the airport is 40$ we have found even for 30 but there was no time to cancell the first one
The advise - to have some water with you for the first evening - if you are tired from safari and dont want to go outside, you will die without drink water :)
Great that they have their own masai who watched over the beach so other sellers will not bother you. But still buy and try frech coconut !!
