From the receiptinists, to stewards to waiters, every person at Sawela is so welcoming. Great customer experience we had with my family The rooms are very spacious and well maintained What we liked best as a family is the the customer service we received, nice food and good rooms. Please consider heating the pool. It was soooo cold.
