Nato. He was a great host!!! He went above and beyond with everything. Would love to come back and stay at this establishment.
We found the owners very welcoming and friendly and appreciated the African themed decor of the public spaces. The view from our balcony of the sea and the mountains was spectacular and well worth paying a little extra for.
We thought the room and particularly the bathroom, looked rather tired and could do with up-dating.
