Our stay in Malu was helped by the friendly staff and excellent views, but from the onset, the services at malu did not meet the value for our money. First the "Italian restaurant" had no red wine, the food was no better than average and the quality kept going down as we stayed on, and even though we had thought of staying over the weekend, we cancelled those plans. Malu cottage 2 was leaking when it rained, and so was the club house! The floor in the cottage was slippery and floor rags are quite dirty . Forget about a scented bath and be ready for a " a tiny bar of imperial leather soap" for your bath and an ugly -smelling apple shampoo. It is obvious that Malu was once a little heaven but now it seems on its way to a hell where you are really disappointed for what you have already paid for and cant get back! Our kids loved the sweet dog tanga and its a shame we cant take them back there to enjoy her company!
