Ok stay
We enjoyed our stay,but were happy to only spend 1 night in the hotel and area. The hotel room was ok, it is quite basic and is not super fresh condition, the bed is comfy enough but there were lots of noises from some engine in the facility area and the ventilator made a lot of noise. Very convenient distance to the beach which is great. The restaurant food is good and portions are generous, though some of the waiters could be more attentive to the guests.

The location is excellent for having a beach holiday. The local area isn’t very interesting nor is it easy to walk around as roads are not made up and rains can lead to massive puddles - we ended up squelching through one in order to go out to dinner one night. But that is not the fault of the Lodge which has good food and wonderful helpful service.

6/10 Good

Since there is no air-conditioning, the rooms have no windows, just nets instead of windows. If you are a light sleeper this could be an issue, basically it feels as you are sleeping outside in open air, you can hear every single thing that moves around. The bathroom is extremely basic, you can hardly find a place to put the towels. The exchange rate they use is not the best, so better to bring some native currency with you. Otherwise the staff is great and very helpful and the property is very well situated, just few steps from the beach.

kite surfers paradise
The place itself was all ok but the beach is only really for kite surfers. The tide goes out approx 1 km and walking out through the water is good but be warned, you need see shoes on add there are many urchins waiting for you to stand on. Food and drinks ok. Thomas makes a great omelette for breakfast but I think it's time for a new toaster guys!!!
