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.

This place is a treasure! Just the right size (large enough for amenities, small enough for a friendly feel with no waiting). The entire staff was so helpful and accommodating (with, among everything, English speakers). The food is good with fresh fish (and other offerings) every night, the pool is great (with 2 small baby pools), the beach a step away and beautiful.

Africa queen is a little 3 stars hotel with a perfect location just in front of the ocean. We really enjoyed our stay in the hotel. The numbers are cleaned every day and if you need an additional cleaning the personnel will do their best. It’s better to take just a breakfast as the food in the hotel is not so good but there are many little and quality restaurants which are located next to the hotel.

Weekend stay
For a cheap get away, this hotel will suffice. There are literally thousands of black flys that infest the dining area. It is not sanitary and makes dining miserable. There are many remedies that are available to take care of this situation. Tiki torches filled with insect repellent would help. Insect infestation is a real issue for me. I make think twice about staying there again.
