10/10 Exceptional

The property is beautifully located on a quiet beach, with breathtaking sunsets. The bungalows have been recently redone, every detail in the room and bathroom remind you of Africa. Very clean, with wonderful staff ( lead by the manager, Mr. Luis), good fresh, tasty food ( fruit, fish and seafood, freshly squeezed juice) and good cocktails. Definitely coming back!
