Very quite and tranquil beach
The beach was full of shells that I've never seen before, in such a huge amount, it was so beautiful. The ocean is not so great to swim in, you need to wear shoes and a lot of seaweed is there, but the beach is just amazing, it's so quiet and tranquil, just to fully relax. The baobab tree has this platform with the awesome view, it's so quiet and beautiful. The whole hotel complex is a unique beautiful garden with monkeys, it's amazing. Our bungalow was great, it had an outdoor shower which was so cool! It also had a bathtub indoor. The bed was very big and very very comfortable. When you open the door and go back to bed and just enjoy the view you feel like in heaven! You could also go on top of the bungalow and hang out and enjoy the view. The sun loungers were very comfortable as well. Lisa was very friendly and helpful there! The food, in particular the dinner was super super delicious! Was a great place to stay!

Nice reclusive resort on the beach
we had a nice room right by the beach. however we came during the low season, and the bed sheet was covered by small bugs and mosquitos after having been changed for a long time. understandably, we were the only guests at the time. we had really good service at the resort and enjoyed a nice quiet day on the beach.
