Sadly, we have just left this wonderful resort. We have nothing but good things to say : the food was plentiful and tasty, especially the fish - they buy fresh from the local fisherman just down the beach. Our room was spacious, and kept sparkling clean, like the entire resort. Large, clean pool. Great bar , free soft drinks ..... More

We stayed at the resort for 3 nights as a way to relax during an 8 week travel intensive adventure in Southern Africa. It was terrific. Many Italians as I believe it is Italian owned. Pool was terrific. Activities fun but not "in your face!" Bartenders nice and food was plentiful. Staff very friendly.

The overall experience was very good. The food was nice - buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. The pool was big, clean and warm. The room was big and had a nice view and was filled with fresh flowers every day. Unfortunately, I had a room with sloping walls, and when it rained one night, the floor and stuff became wet....
