I came to Ushongo after my trek of Kilimanjaro. Emayani has a great location. The food was very good and the staff was nice. However, there are no windows. Just openings with floor mats that cover them. So basically, there were alot of mosquitos in the room. The mosquito net was fine but when I went to the toilet I was eaten alive. Also the mats that cover the windows blow around and make alot of noise during the night. So I did not sleep well. Half worried that someone was trying to get in my room while I slept. It was also hard to leave anything in the room when you went down to the beach as a village kid could just climb in your window. The manager says they don´t have problems, but it just seems to easy. I think if they simply but some sort of window with a screen then the place would be perfect.
