We visited Karafuu in March 2019. The arrival at the main airport was interesting, and one could think of what Jamaica might have been in the 70's. Dilapidated buildings with an island charm. Clearing custom's was quick and efficient. No words can prepare you for the humidity

Very nice resort place, full comfort and security, friendly service, clean and large rooms, excellent beach and sea! The food is good, however its variety could be improved. I can recommend it for everyone who loves the seaside!

We booked a Junior suite with sea view and it was amazing!! Not by the beach tho, a little higher up. Very peaceful and quiet. P.S. we missed a shower maybe outside the suite to wash our feet or even shower of the sand. We also missed a hammock. There's 2 chairs and a nice bed
