It was a lovely spacious hotel with a beautiful African theme spread out in beautiful grounds. The staff were lovely especially Hassan, the Bar Manager and the Animator boys Godgift, Marco and Festo who were great fun. We really enjoyed our holiday there.

Absolutely incredible! Fantastic beyond believe . It was so good I booked an additional 3 nights . I could not fault a single aspect of the resort . I was a lone traveler , and every single member of staff including the managers and manager of the resort made me feel like a member of the family . They were all so warm friendly and welcoming, and I will genuinely miss chatting to them . The location is superb and the beach and ocean views incredible. The food was fantastic and I would like to extend a massive thank you to every single member of staff! Nothing was too much trouble for this wonder people . Matthew
