Indeed prices have remained unchanged for 3 years unlike others where increases have been over 100% during the same period.

I stayed at African Dream Cottages with my wife for 9 days in Dec. Very clean and the staff were polite and the food was superb. It is set in a true tropical garden and you wake up to the sounds of birds singing. The outdoor swimming pool is really warm - as warm as a heated pool! Best swim...

Quiet place, silent, pool is in the resort area. It is possible to swim in the night in the pool. It is great. Resort is not far from the beach, about 5 minutes by walk. We had breakfast only there, always eggs on various ways... :) but good taste. And if you want, you can order something other. Good prices...

You get your own cottage. They clean it one a week! Nice cottage with a small kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Mosquito net over the bed! 5 minutes drive to the grocery store and 10 min walk to the beach. The gardener walks you to the beach if you want to feel safe :)

We asked for a room for 2 nights. The apartments and the facilities looked great, but when we asked for the prices, the manager refused to talk to us. We were said she asked if we were 'Mzungus' or African, and when she heard we were from Germany, she claimed we should pay in euros (which was far more expensive...
