We chose this hotel because they promised 24 hours electricity with their own generator, which I needed for a medical device. They came good! But the most important practicality apart, let me tell you about our stay. I have never experienced such friendly and enthusiastic

Hi there are lots of lounge chairs facing the beach. They have Built a sea wall because certain times of the day the tide is quite high and the waves crash against the wall. When the tide is out the “ beach boys” will be down below the sea wall. Your beach lounge chairs are at the top of wall looking out to the sea. It’s a great vantage point to watch the sea and the village activity as the local people fish, gather oysters and octopus while the tide is out. You can go down the steps and swim and yes you run the gauntlet of young men trying to earn a living. They are all charming and you can just politely say no. It takes a few minutes but once you are in the sea no one bothers you and no bothers you in your lounge chairs. In fact it’s quite safe at the lounge chairs you can leave your belongings and go for lunch or a swim there is always a guard on the sea wall to make sure you feel safe and comfortable

what shops, restaurants, activities are there within walking distance of the hotel
many shops, restaurants are along the beach 10-15 min from the hotel. For restaurant go for Langi Langi or Baraka. For activities again many sellers on the beach. If you can do diving, it was pretty good.

Did you venture out at night from the hotel?. Is there a village nearby to eat out at night? .
Yes we went along the beach to the left of the hotel and there are many restaurants and cafes. The only one we ate at was Baraka seafood restaurant and it was so amazing we went there twice in 3 days! If you like seafood, this place is heaven. It is aprox 600 metres along the beach but can be hard to find. Just ask as you go and you will get directions. The little township/ village is nice to visit during the day to see the locals and purchase souvenirs, but there are no restaurants there. Enjoy this loverly area.
