                                                              I loved the fact that we were close to the Restaurant and the beach. Power/electricity issues must be looked into. We constantly had to ask the cleaning ladies to come and clean our room, they were not proactively doing that. The Restaurant should have an option of paying with a card, not everyone carries cash.

                                                              Arrived in Ponta on the 1st of January and had to sit in traffic for 2 hours (would have preferred if I was advised on the terrible New Year traffic).When arrived in Phambuka everything seemed nice before going to toilets. VERY DIRTY! Restaurant was full of unpleasent people and gave the idea that we owned them something. Closed everynight at 7pm. Food was very expensive as well as drinks. But without these issues, was a good holiday, but wont recommend.

                                                              Admin staff are friendly and very accomodating. Chalets are nicely setup. A fresh coat of paint wont hurt especially then there are cement marks all over the walls.

                                                              It is out of the hustle and bustle of Ponta. Quiet place and lot of shade. The swimming pool is a bonus. You can walk to a private beach, bar and restaurant.
