It was truly nice to rest in this beatiful place. Nice and friendly staff and well slept night. We walked out on the coral reefs, saw blue starfish, lots of crabs, - big ones and we talked to the fishermen who were picking up some fish preys.

When we arrived, there was no personnel at the reception who knew which room we were going to get, so...

Our stay at Kijiji was very nice. After a mountain trek and a safari, we enjoyed the luxury at Kijiji very much. The pool was nice, the beachview was beautifull and our room was clean. The food could be better, because the lack of choice.
