4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This is a lovely boutique hotel/ bed and breakfast . Small and intimate but exceeded my expectations. Room was large and bed very comfortable. Bathroom was modern and huge. Hot water not an issue. Tv stations limited and wifii spotty. Lobby and dining area decor were fabulous. 3 min walk down steep steps to the lovely Ocean blu beach greeted by friendly and very helpful Musa. Service was top notch on all levels. Breakfast was continental with cooked eggs to selection. Only downside was accessing the property from major roads- difficult as not many taxis go by and would be a good 20 min dusty stroll to a major road. Would stay there again nonetheless however with dedicated taxi driver and after buying my own data plan. Recommend highly.

The perfect place to stay if you don’t want hassle
The hotel was perfect. Quiet friendly excellent food. The pool was clean and great. The bed was comfy and the beach was perfection. So much better than Senegambia. The boys on the beach were friendly. No hassle. Wonderful. Pauls was hardworking and fun. I totally recommend this hotel.

Fight at the Hotel
My stay was fine up until the last night when a fight broke out between a local and a guest. There was alot of shouting but turned out the local was well known to the hotel and was married to a British lady who I think was also a guest at the hotel. The local also claimed he was sleeping with the manager but I am not sure how true that is. In any case, it totally destroyed my holiday and in will not be returning.

Travelled with family and small children, Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The hotel is nice, small and cosy, however a bit isolated. The rooms were not in the best condition (roof looked like it was falling in and window nets were wobbly and unsteady). There was no main reception and no telephone in the rooms to call the office/"reception". Also, there was no one to pick us up at the airport although arrival time was given and the room was not completely ready upon arrival. Lastly, there was a wedding reception held on our last night, which they had "forgotten" to enlighten us about. Although the entertainment would've be fun for some people, we had our soon to be 3 year old child with us and it was our last night. We just wanted to relax but due to the event, which was held on the side our window and balcony were facing, we were kept up by loud music until 11pm. On the positive end the staff are very friendly, it is a very clean hotel and it is close to the beach! All-in-all I would not rate it a 4 star hotel. My rating would rather be a 2 star.

a little gem in a peaceful location
This is a charming small hotel in a lovely quiet location overlooking the ocean. The room was large, light and airy with a modern feel. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. I only stayed 2 nights off season but would love to return for longer. If you want to just relax then this is the place for you.
