Stayed here for a week in Aug 2016 with a group of volunteers (5 of us).
Great location. Awesome guys. Excellent hospitality. Good food. Clean rooms.
The water is a little salty due to the location being near the beach, however, that goes for all places along Ushongo Beach.
Highly recommend anyone visiting Pangani to stay at Captain Mike's place.
