We had initially reserved another place but when we came here to meet with a few friends, we fell in love with the location and moved in, despite the fact we had fully paid for the other place; it was all worth it! it's a beautiful resort, with extremely friendly staff who all seem to go an extra mile to...

This property deserves a 5 star rating. Be it rooms, pool, food, ambience, staff or the value for money, it has it all. All inclusive package with all meals, local drinks (including alcohol) and cultural shows everyday evening to completely an amazing holiday experience. Highly recommended!

An oasis of calm with wonderful silver sand beach and infinity pool gazing out to sea under Azid skies and whisky clouds. Views of the reef when the the tide was out and warm water throughout. The hotel was quiet at this time but with plenty of activities with the resident animation team, three main restaurants and poolside alternatives. All...

Another great holiday with family and friends. Been here more times than I can count now. Good place for family's as they have lots of activities during the day. Rooms are clean and spacious. Food is nice with a good variety. Only negative thing is service, very slow both in bars and restaurants.

Kolekole still proves to be an excellent relaxation resort. The room was clean and staff were very friendly and helpful. The ocean front offers a white sandy beach which is a sight to behold.

Nice hotel with excellent trained staff. Lots of fruit. Perfect rooms and room service combined with classy pools and the local Dhawa (like a Caipirinha) make it a close to perfect place to recover and to enjoy the nearly to equatorial place.

We stayed for 6 nights and apart for one tiny problem which was sorted after a couple of telephone calls, I cannot fault the service. The hotel is very clean and the food choice good for both vegetarians and meat lovers. The staff are very friendly and we had a very good and stress free experience and thoroughly enjoyed our...
