Lovely view
The view from this hotel is fantastic ! If you want a quiet, natural setting, this is it!! The staff are helpful and work to please guests The hotel is right on the edge of excellent. They just need to do some basic maintenance. Fix outside broken lights, replace broken windows , etc. the biggest problem we had was no water pressure. The shower just dribbled. We talked to the manager and he said he would turn on the pressure tank when we wanted a shower. But the pressure tank should be on all the time. Just a little tweeking would make this an outstanding place to escape noisy crowds and enjoy a lovely place in the Indian Ocean!

Disappointing
I should have heeded the more negative reviews or read through the lines of the others. I have been quite disappointed with this hotel. The windows have no latches at all and can't shut at all - anyone can climb in if they want. I asked for it to be fixed on the first day and it has never been fixed. The towel rack broke and I asked politely that it could be fixed - the manager said he would have it fixed, he didn't. It was the cleaning woman who got the repair man to do it. The general manager is usually laying in a chair at the front talking on a phone. I really don't know how all these other reviews say that the manager and the staff are great. The driver and the guy working the bar are the friendliest people there. Swimming has been difficult due to the wind and seaweed. The east coast has a lot of seaweed farming. So if you are looking for crystal clear water to swim in, it is better to try the west coast. The good things are that it is very quiet - there are no beach boys at all on this part of the beach. Lots of locals fishing etc so it feels more "authentic" than other parts of the country (or even near the italian resorts). It is pretty - the typical palm trees on the white sand beach. he food is good. The prices are high but consistent with other restaurants and hotels. I would not come back here. i would pay more for a better place and have a slightly shorter vacation.
