As we had never traveled to Africa before, we decided to spend our annual holiday in a resort in this great continent. Having searched through several brochures we found this hotel in the Thompson "Couples Only" brochure. We booked the holiday and 2 weeks ago, we set off on our new adventure. As with all Thompson holidays, there was a welcoming party waiting for us at the hotel on our arrival then we were shown to our room. No lifts or miles and miles of corridors to walk before getting to our room just 2 minutes walk from the reception. We chose the chalet type room which was in the grounds of beautifully set gardens with their resident playful monkeys visiting us when they felt like it. The hotel is very proud to present its guests with an amazing "Infinity" pool. Once you're in it you don't want to get out of it. But I think the best asset of this hotel are its staff who as the saying goes: bend over backwards for their guests. The hotel management was just as friendly and welcoming always checking to make sure that all was well. The hotel has its own private beach within a short walk of the pool with all "non-motorised" water activities included in the all-inclusive package, so we took advantage of that and did snorkling and kyaking in the creek which runs right next to the hotel. Of course, you can't travel to Africa and not go on a safari so we arranged it with the Thompson rep. Food is excellent and drinks are all inclusive. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel except for as I said above, the hotel was not a couples only and during our stay we did see a few kids who were staying there. According to the Thompson rep, they have corrected this in their new brochure so they do allow children of certain ages.
