Just as a note, this was actually my third visit to Kendwa and my second stay at this facility, so I would consider myself someone knowledgeable about the area and the quality of the nearby offerings. I would rank my first stay as decent, but overall, our stay at Sunset this time around (December 2012) was miserable and I would not stay here again.
For one thing, prices have increased, and honestly the price requested for the quality of the rooms you end up with is really poor. I'm not picky about where I stay and don't mind a place that is average or even run-down, as long as I'm paying for the rooms to be in that condition. Here, our room was rustic to say the least, plenty of gaps for creepy crawlies and kind of dirty.
Service started out on a rocky note, as our safe did not work, and I had to call reception for help. We ended up being assisted by a grouchy woman. Later at dinner, we received more cold
