This hotel is magical! The staff is always kind and helpful, facilities perfect and the food was of very good compared to what I have experienced in other parts of the country. I stayed there for 4 days, and it was amazing!
It's not really things I didn't like, it's more small improvements that could be made: the (free) bicycles need a little bit of maintenance and one of the lounge chairs needs to be repaired. Also, the 5% for credit card transaction fee is a bit high, I feel.
Incredible views, unique room decor, pool location, dinner chef menu, staff was very kind, two cute kitty’s to say hello to every morning. A lot of these reviews complain about the road to get here. If you survived safari for a few days- this road is nothing. And how cool to be somewhere so beautiful, in the middle of nowhere.
WiFi was spotty in the room. Worked well in reception/lounge/restaurant area.
Absolutely amazing hotel!! The amenities ,the room ,the bed ,the entire complex are just amazing !! Not to mention the stuff !! Simply the best !!! I had fantastic time and didn’t want to leave !! Will be back soon ASANTE
They have the best privet beach on the island. Rooms are perfect clean. Personal and the staff are very kindly. Amazing place
I would like to have more choices in restaurant menu and with the drinks at the bar as well
Staff are amazing , room was very clean and tidy , thank you for everything
