So there were 5 of us here for 5 nights at the maridadi. Let's start with the negatives. Check in was a nightmare. To begin with..our shuttle didn't arrive in time...which didn't really bother us since the driver was apologetic and efficient. When we got there tho...check in is generally at 11 and we got there at 3. Yet our... More

We decided to try their service and luckily booked only one day to first see their service. Staff couldn't serve you, until you prod them a lot, The room was not draining water so our bathroom was flooded and had to use towels to lay them on the floor to prevent water getting into the other parts of the room....

We stayed here in August 2016 for several nights with a Safari in the middle. The hotel is large with three wings. It was quite busy whilst we were there with most children and families congregating in the Kole Kole wing. We were in the baobab wing which was not as busy. We found that the Maribadi restaurant was best... More

Everything was amazing. Service was excellent. Food was always satisfying. Staff served on request and we probably took this for granted but we never had to wait for our drinks. Had many funny incidents with monkeys and baboons but all in good fun and part of the experience. Loads of peddlers on the beach which can spoil the experience. But... More
