Frequently described as "the best place to stay in El Transito" Mandla has been created to maximise comfort in a minimalistic beautiful environment. For surfers we have "pistols" - a firing beach break right outside the front wall. For those looking for a quiet spot to siesta, tuck yourself into one of our giants hammocks under the palm trees or use our 200sq ft ocean view deck to practice yoga.

Our family’s experience at Mandla was truly unforgettable. From the moment we arrived, Damian was doing everything in his power to make us feel at home and he catered to our needs the entire 4 days. We have never had such a personal travel experience- it was truly once in a lifetime. Our girls aged 11 and 14 loved everything about the place, from the amazing and beautifully presented food, to the tasty tropical drinks made by the awesome bartender, to the beautiful pool, to the beach full of tide pools and places to explore, to the bunk beds in the room, to the hammocks beautifully placed around the resort, to getting pampered with pedicures, to a sunset horseback ride on the beach, to exploring the surrounding farmland in Damian’s 4x4- they didn’t want to leave and neither did my husband and I!! You will not regret visiting this amazing and unique property run by fun, talented, compassionate people. We hope to be back someday. Thank you to all the Mandla staff for giving our family a vacation experience unlike any other.
