-quiet and isolated
-nearly no transport options if you do not have a car, you will be immediately emptying your pockets to irrationally high priced taxi drivers at the junction where the main road and the rough road meet. Twiga is too far from the main road for walking.
-service is bad bad bad and again, bad. Staff are clearly overworked and underpaid--starting at 6:00am and running around until they are dog tired at 11pm or later. No meal comes out of the kitchen on time. for breakfast (which they cannot deliver to your table before at least 1.5 hours of waiting and reminders, and there is definite impatience and irritation behind the tired looks they give you).
-food prices: extortionate. 500 ksh for a itty bitty pizza? 400 ksh for mayo covered avocado slices? Give me a break. 100 ksh for a pot of Nescafe? gross.
-no AC in our room made for sweaty nights under the mosquito net
-tide is out from late morning until afternoon--plus when you walk out to the low tide water the ocean floor is covered in sea urchins. must wait until afternoon for tide to return, and then you can kind of float around.
