4/10 Fair

flea bitten
3km of terrible sand roads The host and staff were very friendly but the lodge is falling to pieces. We tried to sleep the night as we were thinking of staying a few days but between the mosquitoes and fleas it was impossible to get a nights rest so we rather left . This could be a great venue.

Verified Expedia guest review

6/10 Good

A good place to make a retreat
It was a little scary to get to the hotel as we arrive at night. The reception made by the owner was excellent, the cleanness of the rooms was very good. The breakfast was excellent. There are things need to improve: water quality, maintenance of the furniture, as my daughter's bed got broken when she went to sleep. In terms of rooms we received more than we paid.

2/10 Poor

bad experience
Unprofessional staff, not able tout look at à computer.We booked but when we arrived they hadn't checked the mails, and we had to find something else in a hurry, as it was fully booked. To avoid. Welcoming is terrible.
