This hotel really is on the beach, and the warm Indian Ocean is welcoming all day, although the rollers could sometines be too strong for young children. The swimming pool is between the rooms and the sea and there is a bechfront seafood restaurant and bar. The hotel caters largely for all-inclusive tourists.
