    I will be a repeat customer!

    What a jewel so close to Dar! I did not know what to expect and was a bit unsure. As soon as I checked in to my room, I was so relaxed. I booked for 2 nights and extended for a 3rd. Beach was well taken care of and staff was A+! Breakfast was more than anyone could ask for and the overall food was good. I will be back VERY soon - 20 minutes from home, why not?

    Great location on the beach

    Attended a wedding at the hotel, staff were lovely and always very friendly. Rooms were nicely appointed, although not 5 star. Taxis/transfers arranged by the hotel were expensive given the availability of Uber. Restaurant food was ok, however, there are lots of great options within a short drive away.

    Mucho potencial, servicio deficiente

    El hotel tiene mucho potencial, con gran zona verde, buena zona de playa y habitaciones mirando al mar. Sin embargo, el servicio es muy malo. Quitando al entrenador personal, que era muy amable y eficiente, el resto deambula por las instalaciones con cara de cansancio. Les pides algo y no entienden lo que quieres, tardan en servirte, las chapas de la cerveza las tiran a la arena, sirven en vasos de plástico barato, cuando llegue en el retrete no se había terminado de tirar la cadena, no repusieron el champú hasta que se lo pedí, la comida del restaurante, además de carísima, de mala calidad, etc. Cuando estás en las tumbonas de la playa, con marea baja, llega olor a aguas fecales...y la arena no está realmente limpia. El fin de semana viene cantidad de gente local a la piscina, y la piscina que es solo para residentes es más bien pequeña... En definitiva, por localización, tamaño del hotel y habitación y zonas verdes, el hotel está muy bien. Por el servicio, calidad de comida y precio, no es nada recomendable.

    Goed: Ligging, met eigen strand, vriendelijk en behulpzaam personeel. Kamers wat gedateerd, maar verder OK. Van de vijf dagen verblijf slechts 1 dag met warm water kunnen douchen.

    Flot og hyggeligt sted. God service og venligt personale. Gode værelser med altan og havudsigt. Kunne have været rart med mulighed for 2 enkeltdyner på dobbeltseng i stedet for dobbeltdyne.
