Next to the hotel neighbors keeping stinking garbage mountains, burning plastic bottles producing Toxic Smoke that guests of the hotel are breathing. Hundreds of craws around and even rats. Unhealthy place. A Gospel Sect , opposite the hotel, disturbs the nightrest with loudspeakers at highest volume. Screaming, yelling Sect leader waking you up at 5 am early. 100% stress in this place. A case for the City Council to intervene haraka !!!

Stayed in this hotel in May 2017 for 11 nights, the main problem of the hotel is the lack of safe in the room. For the entire period of stay in this hotel, I found repeated theft of money from the room, shillings and foreign currency. Theft of money is handled by the cleaning woman in the daytime, when visitors leave the hotel (for example, on the beach). The manager knows about stealing money, but does not take any action, probably gets a share of the stolen money. Next time I will never stop at this hotel

We stayed for 4 days. Rooms were nice, clean and the swimming pool very ideal and private. I was amazed for us to be changed rooms as there was a leak in the initial room, as they planned its repair. Breakfast awesome!
