Stayed two adults and four kids for eight nights at the Swahili Villa. Fantastic place with extraordinary service. Great chef and friendly people. Beautiful spot right on a very, white, secluded and child friendly beach. Good snorkelling within short walking distance. Really good value for money. Will recommend and return.
