Not a great choice. This was the end of our safari, we spent 4 nights and found the staff very polite and helpful but were disappointed a few things. Showers were salt water, as was the pool. I could understand the pool, but prefer fresh water. The shower, however, is just not right when salt water. What really got me about this that it was nowhere in the resort information....felt rather....well, misled. The included breakfast was repetitive, sparse, lackluster. We'd been to several hotels on our Safari and this was the worst of all the breakfasts. The rooms were nice enough, not the best views. The beach was 2 level, the first for resort guests and nice enough, though more lounge chairs would be nice.....bit competitive getting one. The main beach was mossy, slimy, muddy when the tide went out not inviting to go into the water when the tide came in, 20 minute walk north to get to nice beach to swim/enjoy. The sand on the beach that didn't get covered by the tide was very nice, white sugar sand, good for a walk or run on. The restaurant was ok, not a very varied menu, rather tiresome after a couple of days, and the prices were on the higher side.....certainly no bargin.
