I will be a repeat customer!

What a jewel so close to Dar! I did not know what to expect and was a bit unsure. As soon as I checked in to my room, I was so relaxed. I booked for 2 nights and extended for a 3rd. Beach was well taken care of and staff was A+! Breakfast was more than anyone could ask for and the overall food was good. I will be back VERY soon - 20 minutes from home, why not?
