10/10 Exceptional

Verified Expedia guest review

6/10 Good

Nice hotel, with great rooms, nice staff and good location. Two problems however: (1) while the room was great, the bathroom was miserable (it badly needs refreshing), and (2) the price is relatively high and there was little negotiation even though the hotel is was empty. I had to pay an extra 70$ per night for a small extra bed for my 10yo son.

OK hotel
Internet was lacking and breakfast menu could use some work. Bathrooms outdated.
Verified Expedia guest review

4/10 Fair

In the middle of town, no beaches nearby
Having travelled widely in Africa, this is by far the worst breakfast ever experienced. Very poor quality food, even more poorly prepared, presented cold and covered in flies.
