I have stayed at Jangwani three times now. The first two times were incredible! The staff is consistently amazing in their efforts to make you comfortable and your stay enjoyable. The rooms and cleanliness vary dramatically so ask to see what you are going to stay in.
On arrival for my first stay I found they were hosting a very large, very loud party and had reserved a room next to the front desk for me. I asked for something a little further away and they obliged with a more secluded room. It was quite large with a large television, small fridge, great a/c, desk, comfy chair and comfy bed. It had a large en suite bath and nice mosquito net. I came complete with closets even provided a robe and slippers. It was very clean and room service brought food to the room for a road weary traveler.
The second stay was equally as pleasant at the first. The management is eager to please and security is helpful. The property straddles the road but security is tight so there are no problems with this. There is a nice beachfront that is perfect for sunrise meditation.
The food was great. They even have a juice bar with several fresh juice selections. The breakfast has a large variety of food but the morning is not as skilled as the evening chef had been.
The last time I stayed at Jangwani I was not as pleased. The room was MUCH smaller with too much furniture for the room, so much so that I could not get the closet doors open to put my suitcase in it. There were two twin beds when I thought I had reserved a double bed. There were mosquito nets over both beds which both had large holes in them. The floors were gritty with dirt and the sheets were stained. The window didn't even shut properly. I had arrived quite late and was told that was their last room. It felt like a completely different hotel. I had paid at the time of check-in. As I checked out the next morning I expressed my disappointment and was told that I would get a discount the next time I stayed. I was told I would get an email as confirmation on that but never did. If I had not had two wonderful stays I would not consider going back.
When they get it right, this is an awesome hotel. Hit or miss the staff is always professional and goes above and beyond to serve their customers.
