My Wife and I recently experienced a wonderful Holiday at this Hotel. We went as part of a dive group and I wasnot expecting too much as it was rated as a 3 star Hotel and after having had recent dissapointments in Kenya and having seen reports on the beach not being a swimming beach I was not expecting much.
What we got was a stunning hotel, very clean, great service, wonderful food (Well done Mark! F&B Manager). We had the Sea facing room and it was a treat! The beach was great to walk on and a swim is not out of the question at all. A visit to Sakatia Island for a little Kyaking and a little taste of paradise did not go amis. Diving is good especially at the Marine Reserve where you can have an awesome Dive in just 6m of water, however you must be prepared to be diving in Buddy pairs without a Dive Master, but this is also ok as there is very little current to battle with in terms of drifting. Previous reports complain about lack of communication at the Hotel, People, be realistic. You are visiting a Country where English is not their first language, it is not even their second language so let's respect that fact and enjoy the exposure to their Language and the challenges associated. Personally there was not a single moment where a request could not be understood either by the immediate recipient or another employee close by.
All in all an absolute pleasure to have had this experience. If there were not so many beautiful places in this world to explore I would definitely have this on my return list.
