General friendliness of the staff and willingness to help in any way possible was so refreshing. Tarryn Clark, Reservations Manager, in particular was superb and helped in every way she could to make our stay memorable. Location was beautiful and the Mbudya Island trip well worth it. Breakfast buffet really good. This was a totally relaxing week's holiday.
Wifi was a challenge at times but there was always help available whenever needed.

Room Tip: Go for ground floor, sea facing
