The Mozambique guy who runs the show there makes this place a dream to stay at. We had an awesome time there...But there isn't any TV in rooms, one plug point in each room and Wi-fi doesn't reach all the rooms.

There was no TV, the AC was broken, the toilet wasn't working well, there were stains in the toilet and basin, the towels were torn, two single beds of different heights and firmness were pushed together to form a king size bed, the only saving grace was the chef. The chef went above and beyond to provide exceptional breakfast service. The chef is the only reason that the rating isn't lower.

The place is good and I would always give a good review if things went well. However, at check-in, the owners or managers were nowhere to be found. We could not get hold hold of any of the 3 cell numbers we had. It was left up to the caretaker, Masada, to sort us out. And he did a good job of calming us down. I would recommend the place if there were better attendance from the owners.
