The whole staff greeted me as I arrived to the hotel. My room wan not clean, so they immediately gave me a another room. It is right in front of the beach. The breakfast is fresh and the restaurant food was fresh to order and very delicious. It is a little out from the city but well worth the drive for the cost compared to other resorts in Mwanza.

Top Notch
Very clean and very classy. Attentive staff with great service. Property is brand new and is of very high quality. Spotless. Staff was super helpful and food and drinks were great. Recommended. I had a phone with google maps navigation and that was helpful in getting from the main road to the beach front.
