Wonderful hotel in a great location. Food was excellent, the staff were friendly and very helpful - couldn't ask for better. We played golf and really enjoyed the course. Just as at the hotel the staff were friendly and very helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. Will definitely go back again.

From Keshnee at the reception, Johannah for the PR, to Jocelyn the Italian restaurant manager, the smiles, welcoming, and kindness was exceptional ! The food was above expectation. A little black spot.... the service at the beach restaurant, infinity blue. Was sometimes "rude". Thanks to all

This really is a lovely hotel. African in style and lots of little luxury touches Good range of activities lead by a young and enthusiastic team. Just a few things to think about before you book 1. Staff are all very friendly and willing to help out. However, well intentioned they are some of the guest relations staff are clueless. Never following up on issues. We had a poor show round from a French female. Who failed to mention the gym amongst other areas. Gave us incorrect information ie the scuba diving WASN'T included in the package. I could give many other examples 2. Three good restaurants- but the evening buffet at the Savana restaurant was very poor 3. Do not book January/February or March. It never stopped raining all the time we were here Hope this is useful Read less
