Some of visitors can be surprised by very high tide, but you can clearly watch the sea and decide about right time to go swimming. The main goal was safari at Selouse - excellent, well...

Dear Sambo G, thank you for being our guest, here in Palumbo Reef we have a private beach which allows for a maximum privacy 'cause sometimes the customer doesn't want to be disturbed by beach boys.

Were assisted in accommodation for 5 as original accommodation booking was totally unsatisfactory. Taking a short walk along the beach we found paradise. Friendly and most helpful staff members Alli and Carolina were an absolute life saver during the remainder of our stay. Were even able to provide a Doctor in the resort. THANK YOU once again.

We happened to stay at Palumboreef Resort after our original accommodations were not what we were promised. They were able to accommodate three families (of different sizes and ages) while we gathered for the holiday. Beautiful rooms, wonderful lounge areas, beaches and buffets
