This small apartment complex is awesome. Pick-up from airport by Harrison, courteous and friendly; give the staff your flight number via email and they'll even check if you're landing on time! Rooms all vary, well-equipped by African standards (hey, if you want a pillow-menu, this is not for you, stick to the chain hotels, and pay a fortune!) If you... More

It's a simple apartment so don't expect anything fancy but it has everything you need. The place is very clean, food is really good, the pool is fantastic and the staff is very friendly and welcoming. Also... More
