Stayed at this hotel for 11 nights following safari. Cannot fault the staff or the food. Accommodation very good with brilliant views of the ocean. Bathrooms need an upgrade but were we told this was happening soon. Tremendous beach and security fantastic. Don;t leave your room door open or you could be visited by monkeys.

We stayed here on our honeymoon in September 2007 and had a fantastic time from start to finish. As we had booked this for a honeymoon we were given a small bungalow right by the beach and when the tide was high the waves would splash up onto the path in front of us as we lounged on the sunbeds....
