How does one begin?
The begining I guess. I was a little worried at first about travelling to Kenya alone( treat for my 50th) but i didnt have to worry one little bit. After a fantastic 4 day safari with Madukha safaris (thnx charles ur a star) I was wondering how the Papilion would match up to my expectations.
The start was not good as I was given a room away from the main area and being a lone traveller I was a little upset to say the least. The room was simply basic with a bed and silly shower. However once i had spoken with the managment and told them of my expectations i was told i could upgreade to a ocean view room for around 150USD. Trust me when I say that these are the rooms you want. TV,Mini bar(stocked daily with beer and pop. Huge bed and the most wonderful sight to wake up to every morning The Beach.
Once settled I was happy. Food lovely, staff wonderful especailly Bosco and George.Drinks and entertainment also good.
Now onto the beach. Please dont believe everything you read about the Beach boys. I met 2 wonderful guys who loked after me evertime they saw me and they really only want to improve their English. I even ventured down the beachmost afternoons to a wonderful plac called The kim4love well worth a visit to see how Kenyans enjoy themselves and makes a lovely change from the sun loungers at Hotel. Overall i would say that The Papillion was a great choice and had a ball.
