Great campsite - right on the beach. Good ablutions with hot water most of the time. Great pub (little on the expensive side) right on the beach. Staff are incredibly helpful and can find you almost anything you want or need from nearby people.

This was nice little getaway from Lilongwe with all the essentials but don't expect the Four Seasons. I was staying at Sunbird in Lilongwe and so was able to transfer my stay to this hotel for the weekend, which was convenient and saved me money. The whole hotel is a little dated and tired (so some investment would be welcome)...

My wife and I spent two nights at the Resort, staying in a well appointed room virtually on the beach. It had been over ten years since we were there last, but we were remembered by a number of staff, including the Manager who was most pleasant. We received a pleasant surprise when we returned after a day out to...

I recently had an event here for work and the views from the property of the lake are really gorgeous and the staff was very kind and accommodating. They were very helpful and ensured that we had a smooth time with our event. The rooms were nice and spacious, but everything is old and outdated. This would be fine if...

Upon our arrival, we were welcomed by very friendly hotel staff, the hotel itself is has an old colonial architecture. We immediately took to the beach and spent a few hours relaxing under the...

My spouse and I spent a week here. The hotel staff were simply amazing, pleasant and friendly. The grounds and the pool were well kept. The view from the beach, the sounds of the waves and the boats from the fisherman made it so relaxing and peaceful. We were very satisfied with our meals as well as room service. Our...

I stayed here for a conference. The hotel staff were great, very helpful and friendly. We had a good training room with excellent AC and lighting. They offer fairly weak but reliable internet (for which you must buy cards) -- good enough for email and some web browsing but not strong watch videos, for example. The buffet breakfast and lunch...
