There are reviews below that knock this place. Don't take too much notice of them. One says the coffee/ food etc. is disgusting, trust me, it's not. It's basic, yes. It's limited, yes. But disgusting? That really isn't fair. My wife is a very fussy eater but she didn't have a problem here.
The grounds of the hotel are lovely and clean. The rooms are very big with two double beds in each room, so if you book a twin room you get a double each! Lovely!
The staff are excellent and very friendly too. The monkeys in the grounds add to the charm of the place. It's right on the beach (back gate) and right on the strip (front gate). Ideal position.
If you're considering booking this place, do yourself a favour and read all the reviews not just the few negative ones. Just remember you'll be in a third world country and to lower your expectations a little and you'll be fine. I think a lot of the bad reviews come from people who expect 5 star European standards when they're paying for 2 star African standards. Trust me, for the price and guaranteed winter sun, this place is excellent.
