We stayed here for 2 nights before and 2 nights after our safari. The rooms are fine, comfy beds, wonderful air conditioning, nice balcony. The bathrooms are fine except there is no where to put toiletries. The shower pressure is adequate and there is hot water and electricity all the time!
We had a bungalow near the back by the pool and I was able to see people wandering through from the back of the property, so I found this a bit weird.
The food was fine. Good breakfast selection, except when they ran out of something ( bananas!) it took a while to replace them. Lunch was from a menu and when we were there dinner was a buffet. Bar service can be a bit slow.
We sat in the lounge quite a bit as there are no chairs in the room to sit on, just the balcony.
It rained one day and the floor of the main building and stairs can be very slippery.
Esther at the reception desk was great, cheerful and very helpful to us.. thanks.
