I didn't stay at the hotel this time although I have in the past but I visited the restaurant here which is called "Tribes". The food is really good and fresh fruit juice is available. They have added an extra building right by the beach where you can relax with a cool beer and watch the waves and the people coming by. So what if the the food takes a long time to appear? It's cooked fresh and I was waiting in perfect surroundings where I would be happy to be even if I wasn't waiting for food.
I would recommend a visit to this place. It's a bit difficult to find at the end of a bumpy track which seems to be know as the "ministires area" or the Liberia Road extension.
