You can see that the Hotel has been recently refurbished so room and pool equipment are all new and in good condition. Buffet food is ok. Unfortunately we had a room that overlooked the road as they said this is happens when you book via Expedia. They recommended to call directly next time to get a seaview room.

Beachfront property with great African theme of natural vibes. Service was wonderful. Room was decent sized with king bed, AC and hot shower. Only issue was a small floor leak in bathroom from unknown source. Breakfast was fabulous. Great resort for getaway.
