4/10 Fair

Not for solo travellers
Looks nothing like the photos. Pool was dirty and the girl "running" the reception was so uninterested in anything and barely smiled once. Was empty most of my stay and not comfortable for a single female traveller. Breakfast was not good, was just fruit and an egg. I wasn't able to fully open the door of my room because there was an extra bed in there that was supposed to be removed, but was not. Ashtrays around the pool looked like they had not been emptied for a month.

Closed to the beach
The place was closed to the beach, just behind a hotel, 2 min by walking. It has a swimming pool. The room were real, natural bungalows. The water was weak when you get shower. Dining area was great, big and relaxing

Bien que le personnel fut sympathique, Je n'ai pas été charmé par les lieux.Manque de caractère, assez impersonnel. Pr des courts séjours (2 ou 3 jours max) ça dépanne.

2/10 Poor

Les +: Une sortie pour aller voir le coucher du soleil nous a été proposée gratuitement par le staff. Design des bungalows sympa à voir (de l'extérieur). Le petit déjeuner est en libre service, bien qu’il ne soit pas très varié mais copieux. Les -: - Accueil hautain et froid. - Ménage mal fait, les bungalows sont poussiéreux. - Tâches de sang sur les moustiquaires - Beaucoup de trou dans les moustiquaires, nous avons demandé à la changer, ils nous ont ramené la même qu'ils ont lavé il y avait toujours les mêmes trous!! - Impossible de dormir sans vider un flacon d'insecticide dans la chambre. - Nous sommes restés 8 jours, et la piscine n'a été nettoyée qu'une fois, des bestioles flottent à la surface. - L'hôtel est proche d'un bar qui met fort la musique vendredi et samedi. Impossible de dormir avant 3h du matin. L'eau est vendue plus chère qu'en bord de mer. - Si on vous sert le dîner sur la terasse de votre bungalow, personne ne vient débarrasser. Les restes sont mangés par les chiens de l'hôtel et les oiseaux au petit matin. - Les poubelles laissées sur la terrasse du bungalow ne sont pas vidées tous les jours. - Les restaurants et autre activités sont toutes située sur la plage. Pour rentrer le soir, les rues qui vont a l'hôtel sont vides et partiellement éclairées. - Et enfin l'hôtel ne tient tellement pas les comptes que nous avons dû rappeler a la fin ce que nous avons consommé pendant le séjour.

Fine bungalows
Gode og rummelige bungalows med fine faciliteter på hotellet såsom pool, Beach volley og restaurant. Dog var der få mennesker og ikke så meget stemning i fællesområderne. Dog skal det siges, at vi var der i lavsæson.

padrão africa, sem processos de qualidade!
Existe uma boa vontade , porem , ainda falta muito! O local e espaço estão numa área privilegiada, pertinho da praia e de uma barraca bacana,onde toda 6 feira tem uma balada bem legal. As camas foram feitas manualmente e os colchões são péssimos, somente espuma o que machuca bastante e faz com que as noites não sejam perfeitas. As 2 pessoas que tive contato também reclamaram bastante. Em relação a comida: O jantar foi muito bem feito e gostoso, para quem gosta de peixe e bem atrativo os preços. O cafe da manha , bem triste, sem padrão, um dia não teve ovos, porque foram fazer.compra no dia em questão, tinha dia que não tinha suco,e tal. Em tempo, o hostel é bem escuro, a iluminação bem fraca e a noite precisávamos ir para próximo ao bar, porque o Wi Fi não funcionava no quarto.enfim o Staff era bem educado, mas totalmente limitados sem muito poder de solução. Finalizando vale o preço que se paga, porem estava bem vazio, e um ponto de atenção é em relação a quem tem problemas com pernilongos e outros insetos, pois eles aparecem bastante!
