"This is for people looking for a beach stay with lots of things on offer There are plenty of activities, game and classes during the day and different evening entertainment. It’s got lovely beaches and the highlight is the swim-up bar! "

Mr. Ian Nicholas
"Nestled next to the Indian Ocean, The buffet restaurant provides good quality food which includes, fresh, locally caught, game fish grilled and eaten right on the beach. Quality furnishing and fittings, a warm welcome and good service. A good choice of location for a wind down with a bit of luxury following a safari. I'm not a fan of the "All inclusive (AI)", spoilt years ago at a Sandals Resort, now most AIs would be accurately called "Some stuff Inclusive". This hotel has a slightly confusing price list. An example would be beer prices, for those not on AI beer A cost $5, beers B cost $6. For those on AI, A was free but B was $6, go figure! Minor point but it just shows up that there is a limit to what is included and it can be somewhat arbitrary. "
