Lovely little rooms with balconies and views of the ocean, friendly family and adorable pets, good food at restaurant, excellent breakfast included, hot water and wonderful secluded location. The place as clean, tidy and well kept in spite of it being low season. We had a very pleasant stay and would definitely return!

Nice place, outstanding service, food was delicious, good prices, the staff was very friendly. Highly recommended, for me, the best place in the area. The beach is very beautiful and the hotel provides everything, chairs, hammocks, towels, etc. to enjoy it, also,you can ask for a beer or food and they bring your order to the beach.

We spent a lot of our days on the beach under the cabana that was equipped with hammocks and a table for eating. We particularly enjoyed the shade and the pleasant breeze that blew. There...

Tsafiki is a simple, but quiet and peaceful place located directly at a relatively lonely and beautiful beach. Tsafiki's 4 cabins (2 rooms each) look nice, are well kept and clean. The food was always freshly prepared and really good. Their local cook who prepared the food was very curious and keen to even prepare recipes they didn't have on...
