                                                              Nice campsites but our biggest problem was the ablution. Especially the men's. Shower pipes loose, toilet doors in men's about half a meter from ground and no privacy. Tall guys like my husband could look onto the person showering next to him.There was only one globe in our bathrooms but after 3 days they fixed it after some of the people left earlier before there vacation was over.

                                                              14 April 2018

                                                              The campsite are very niceThe bathrooms are very dark maybe install a view transparent fireglass sheets on the roofNo place to hang clothing when taking a shower there are some nice Fishbone hangers at the stalls in town.May be build a chimney for the water heating system a lot of smoke early in the mornings.You have the the nicest Camp in Ponta we will come again soon we realy enjoyed our stay

                                                              Other than the view there is nothing nice about this resort. We stayed in Beach cottage 4 - the pictures look nothing like the actual cottage. The cutlery was rusted, the toilet did not have a handle to flush, the bed and cushions were uncomfortable, the mirror in the bathroom you could not see yourself in, most of the electric cables are not properly earthed, no cushions on the couches inside the unit, overall it just felt dirty, the pool was not clean. We booked and paid for 3 nights but decided to only stay for 1 night. For the price you pay - rather go down the road and book at Maresol...

Blinds at the sliding doors to protect the rooms from the sun. Phambuka is a great resort and would love to come back again!! Kind regards Rina HeymansAdmin Manager
