Mixed Feelings on this one.......

Lets start by saying we enjoyed our stay. The location is fantastic. We booked a Seafront Bungalow that we strongly recommend and not a lot extra. The room was lovely, the location great but it was destinctly rustic and the bathroom was well overdue for a refurb. We loved the Jetty Bar too BUT BUT BUT the hotel was not as described on Hotels.com. They have just opened two new blocks of rooms and are building two blocks more. They have also just finished a huge new swimming pool all done in sandstone (rather odd) and a huge two storey restuarant. It is now firmly a package tour hotel with large numbers of Polish, South African and Dutch customers. Individual bookings are overwhelmed. There is also an entertainment programme which is great if that is what you want but the deafening music on a few evenings and for the pool exercise was very trying. There is an all inclusive offer for US$30 per person per day. Not expensive but not great either. The buffet meals became tedious and rather bland and annoyingly the deserts kept running out. The drinks were all the very cheapest brands - a single cheap beer, cheap Vodka/Rum and an Indian Brandy that you could dissolve bodies in. The Cocktails were clearly made with watered down Vodka/Rum (officially or unofficially??) and tasted of well.... not a lot. The staff are lovely as in so many places in East Africa. We spent most of our time outside our room and enjoyed our stay but we wouldn't go back!!

Absolutely amazing

I loved my stay here. We were booked bed and breakfast but upgraded to all inclusive for $30 a day each. The hotel was spotlessly clean. The staff were excellent in every way. The jetty bar was stunning and you could get down to the sea for a swim. Is two lots of steps from the bar. Meals are buffet style with live cooking available every meal and the well stocked bars do a range of cocktails in addition to other drinks. The swimming pool was very clean and in the afternoon the kirks red colobus monkeys came down to play. The beach is right next to the pool although the waves can be strong and I would recommend wearing coral shoes. The room was spacious with a/c and a lovely balcony to enjoy a drink in the evening. If you are there on a Monday or Friday the hotel run a complimentary village trip where you are taken by Abdul one of the animation team to a nearby village where you can visit a school, a local house and have the opportunity to buy exercise books and sweets for the local children. Abdul is an excellent guide and this trip was one of the highlights of our holiday. The manager Silvana was also great and very helpful in returning paintings t us that we left in the hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel.
