Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness
Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service
Breakfast was good even though it seemed the staff had no interest in being there!!! The staff service was disappointing, especially the receptionist!! We were having a drink at the bar at 10.45pm and was told the lodge closes down at 10pm. We had had a 10hr drive and arrived at 6.45pm so once we found somewhere to eat we just wanted to relax with a drink after a long day. If we had known this we would not have stayed. We have traveled around Africa and have stayed in some wonderful places with wonderful staff service at a fraction of the price.

Nice place
In quiet part of town, well kept property, nice garden. Excellent breakfast, good range incl fresh fruit, eggs cooked fresh. Beach and ocean can be seen from top deck where breakfast served, really nice location to start the day. Insect repellant required in the evening tho. Overall a good town to stop, we stayed 3 nights.

Bed was very comfortable. Great to have self catering facilities in the cabana. Bathroom was a bit small and sometimes had difficulty getting in and out of the shower.
