It's a good place to chill and just unwind from the hustles and bustles of the big city.. Really enjoyed my visit and it's great value for money.. Close to the beach and all other entertainment spots.. their grill chicken and kachumbari is to die for..

Average food in a fantastic place. Maybe a bit expensive, with an average services and one of the best oceanfront seats ever. You can seep your drink watching at the fascinating colors of the beach. Be there once!

This is not an exotic stay. It is 100% functional. Fit for Bed and breakfast and then you can wander around on excursions away from the hotel to come back and have a decent night's rest. It is just fit for purpose. Spent a few days with family and the highlight was the pool and then off course we had...
