We stayed in this hotel in December 2016. It was one of the best holidays I had... our room was clean, comfortable and cosy. The view from our room spectacular: the garden, the pool, and the ocean! Breakfast is good and the bar has cold drinks all day. A lot of evenings there is live African music (just after diner...

The owners and staff in all areas couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. the rooms and communal...

During the day often problem with electricity - so the air condition didn't work and there were only warm drinks. Breakfasts always started with delay -...

The first bight when I arrived it all looked a bit dated and needed renovation. I got probably the only room with a small hole on the front door out of which at night many big insects appeared into my room. I was not planning to sleep there. I even wanted to change the hotel as I thought it would...

We just spend two weeks in this hotel, it is not a bad hotel but there are defenetly better hotels of the same price range as the Golden Beach Hotel. The rooms are basic but fine since you wont be spending much time on your room anyway. The cleaning is perfect. Staff very friendly! During our stay there were problems...

The electric socket was hanging off the wall. Plaster had fallen from the ceiling. The toilet leaked and the bathroom door did not close. The...

There are a few good points but unfortunately far too many bad points. The good points are its cheap,plenty of sun loungers,the massages are superb, pleasant 100 yard footpath to the beach, all the rooms have a sea view and are reasonably large. I am a bit scared to start the list of bad points but here goes,loungers are uncomfortable...

“The rooms are equally good where ever you are in the hotel. It is small and therefore the rooms are all round in a horseshoe, so there are no bad rooms. They all overlook the pool and beach.”
