The food at the main restaurant was good (especially for a buffet 3x a day), and the pizza place (also included in our package) had a nice atmosphere. The pool is pretty but salt-water. The beach is big at low tide, small at high tide,...

We had an amazing stay! The sea view room was spacious and had a lovely view and a small terrace. Its amazing how they manage to give such personal service in a big resort like that. Love their all inclusive, with choices of restaurants that all have fantastic food. The best place we have ever stayed at!

Wonderful setting, beatiful rooms. personal treatment by extremely helpful and friendly staff. Hubby had his bed decorate "Happy Birthday" with bougainvilla petals. A cake and sparkling wine was complemantary. We shared the cake with cleaners and gardeners, but saved the bubbly for ourself. Highly recommended.

We were here back in 2007 after a safari in the northern part of Tanzania and remembered it as a brilliant place, so after a safari in the south we returned to this hotel, and are very happy we did so. Rooms are large enough, bathroom is good, and you don't go here to stay in your room anyway. Breackfast...
