Got there with the intention of staying a day or two, instead was there for 10.
The bandas are basic, comfortable to sleep in and clean. The shower area as well as the toilets are clean. The showers are fed by salt water. From some of the previous reviews this seems to be an issue, but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
What I enjoyed most about Mikadi was getting up early, drinking a cup of tea in the bar area before heading off to a comfy spot in the campsite to enjoy a good read.
The menu is small although varied. Big menus do not speak of fresh food!
The Easter lunch special was very good and reasonable. Overall I did not find the food too pricey. Coming from SA you would be paying more just for the setting.
Thanks to Jo and staff for a great stay, great company and all round good fun.
p.s. the light Indian ocean breeze with the sound of the surf should be enough to make you feel at ease.
p.s.s check out the clothes shop. I got a shirt tailor made at a very reasonable deal.
