    To be honest I like everything starting from the food, the sea view, swimming pool and the spa was just unforgettable!The activities are really great, if you want to do a great surprise to someone and have fun you find your place here

    Comfortable room with excellent housekeeping.

    Not enough drinkable water in room.

    Karafuu was just not worth the money we paid per night. The rooms are dated, furniture, mattress is flimsy, leaky kettle, bathroom is average at best. The reception staff is rude, and after check in at the reception before going to your room, a guy sits you down and gives an unnecessary 10 minute spiel about the resort policy making it feel like high school. The food is very average with limited variety, and there are lines to get food. Everywhere we traveled in Tanzania, there was free wi-fi. Here free wi-fi is only available in the reception area that has very poor service where most guests are forced to hangout to connect. We requested to speak to the manager, the reception folks never bothered connecting us for a day and half, after which we gave up and checked out early. We felt like the place is very restrictive in terms of options for things to do, and explore around. If you are ok being confined in a mediocre resort, waiting in line for food, then you might be ok with this place. It was just not for us.

    After the horrific experience, there is little to none that I can say I liked

    The manager and staff do not have a sense of urgency or value the guests life's. I am still waiting for their correspondance regarding the break-in into our room whilst we were sleeping. Our room was broken into whilst were sleeping and our valueables including shoes were stolen. The first question they asked was why didn't we put everything on the safe, I mean how do you anticipate people breaking in into a room whilst you are sleeping and mind you staff all your belongings into a safe? The management was not really concerned whether we were okay or not, can you imagine had we woken up whilst they were busy helping themselves?. Our lives were practically at their mercy. I had to fight management on site for them to have extra security personnel and police to be involved. It has been 4 days already and no correspondance on how they will make amends to this terrifying ordeal or even a written apology from the so called "directors" who are supposedly . If you honestly do not value your own life and valuables then this is the resort for you, I would not recommend it to anyone who does PERIOD!!!!
