Generally a nice property. Certainly not a luxury property etc. Check-in was easy enough although staff didn’t find our booking at first and said it was room only (until I showed confirmation saying it was breakfast included). We arrived about 6pm and the kitchen was already closed, so bear that in mind if you book “with dinner”. The room (African style straw hut) was quaint and a novelty for a European with a child. Generally the room was clean and facilities fine. It was a shame that two windows in the bathroom (all huts are ground level) were broken. One - in the shower- had a smashed pane of glass that people from outside could look through and two others had no latch so could not close them. This is a security issue as the windows are large enough for someone to climb through. A slight reprieve regarding this is that you could lock the bathroom door from inside the bedroom. We sadly had quite a noisy stay. There is a fair amount of road noise, especially in the morning with rumble strips near by. Also there was loud playing nearby (sounded like a bar or social area?) which was playing loud music until after I got to sleep. Sadly this restarted at 06:40am with loud rhythmic base. I am not noise-sensitive at all but this did disturb. The breakfast was fairly basic, but tasty all the same! Good eggs and very tasty fried onions and mushrooms!
