    ‘Magic’ indeed!! A truly special place!

    What a perfect little slice of heaven this place is!! Isolated from the hectic tourism / aggressive sellers of other parts of the island; this place was absolutely perfect to unwind at the end of our mainland safari. Definitely not the cheapest place on the island for the room prices or for food / drink prices but amazing quality, value and service built in to everything they do. All of the staff members seemed to genuinely care that you have nothing to worry about at all during your stay! Thanks!

    Buena elección

    El hotel está muy bien y bien ubicado en Matenwe, un pueblecito que no está tan saturado de hoteles y turistas por lo que guarda mayor encanto. Se trata de un pueblecito pesquero. Las instalaciones y la habitación estaban muy bien, recomendable pagar algo más por una habitación en el segundo piso o en el tercer piso porque los que están en la zona baja tienen poca intimidad (al igual que los dos bungalows). Lo único que no nos gustó es el desayuno ya que no es buffet. Tienen un menú cerrado que es siempre lo mismo, al estar seis días alojados al final se hacía muy repetitivo. En las cercanías, en la playa, hay varios sitios locales donde poder comer o cenar a precios mucho más bajos que en el hotel. En el pueblecito, a unos 10 minutos andando, en el centro de Matenwe hay alguna tienda donde también pueden comprarse productos de alimentación. Las excursiones las contratamos también en los puestos de personas locales que hay en la playa, a precios mucho más bajos que en el hotel (la mitad de precio), también los desplazamientos en taxi. Hay en Matenwe un puesto con taxis locales donde pueden contratarse también los desplazamientos y excursiones (se negocia el precio).
