Stayed at this hotel for 11 nights following safari. Cannot fault the staff or the food. Accommodation very good with brilliant views of the ocean. Bathrooms need an upgrade but were we told this was happening soon. Tremendous beach and security fantastic. Don;t leave your room door open or you could be visited by monkeys.
