From beginning to end, we had a wonderful experience staying at Jaribu. During the online booking process, Rachel was extremely helpful with every little question I had, and gave great advice. On arrival, we were really taken by the setting and the clean and tastefully decorated bedrooms, down to the flowers laid on the beds. Each room had it own private veranda overlooking the ocean. The restaurant was the first prize though, right on the beach, comfortable couches and a great rustic and relaxing vibe.
Mosquitoes were a problem, but when we mentioned this, they came to spray our rooms daily.
Nothing was too much hassle for Rachel and Masood. We mentioned drinks we liked from South Africa, and they sourced them for us. The men in our group wanted good meat, so they organised a spit braai for us.
I spent many hours on the beach sun beds under the umbrellas, and it was the perfect place for me to recuperate after my gruelling hike up Kilimanjaro. The location is great, between two fishing villages, both easily accessible by foot, but away from the noisy party scene. We had an amazing stay, and would love the return. We would recommend this hotel for sure!
