“Small very African Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2006

First of all: this is an Italian Hotel, and this, for sure, means two things:
1) Italian people always choose the best places with the highest quality / price ratio;
2) places like this one can be unconfortable for people that are not Italian language speakers.
Having told this, this is a marvellous place where to stay, also for long time. Africa is fantastic, the nearby beach is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen, the sea is colored, but not the best in otder to swim, there's also high tide or low tide.
Food is not special, but very good for Africa. All the hotel is very exotic, rooms have mosquito nets, they're simple but clean and confortable with huge balcons overlooking one of the four swimming pools.
From the hotel you can organize Safari, excursions, etc.
Really a very beautiful vacation!
