We enjoyed our stay at Khaya La Manzi, very close to other activities, and the reception was very good.
Rating: Reviewed by Don La Grange over a year ago
Great service and owners did not mind waking up earlier to make an early breakfast for morning departure. Beautiful views, but not right on the water, about 2 min walk to the beach. Amazing resources though, huge book library and DVD collection.
