African House Resort, a jewel of its kind within the coastal region with 7 superior double rooms only featuring columns and art, sits on a very quiet and peaceful 1.5 acres.

There is a special relaxing atmosphere where you will feel spoiled and enjoy the comfort and privacy of a friend's home. The African House, run by an Italian owner who has lived in Africa for many decades, stands out for its attention to detail. The resort fuses love of African culture with Italian taste and tradition.

Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Fans were excellent at moving around air, however the mosquito netting did stop the air flow. Bathrooms were large and clean. Restaurant food was good, however the menu was larger than what they had on hand. A little out of the way, but

Perfect getaway.... if you need a quiet place to recollect your thoughts. Popular terms used by staff " feel free".....the fact that it hosts a small number of occupants enables you to enjoy the place and decor....accessibility to the town using the tuk tuk service is just a

On face value the hotel is lovely and the rooms are very grand, but sadly the service was terrible. I waited an hour as the only one in the restaurant for food, to be told when I asked why it was so that the owner was having a party and the chef was busy, I walked. The

Response from AfricanHouse, Manager at African House Resort
Responded 23 Apr 2018
Dear James, Thank you for taking time to express your experience here. All this scenario has been put out of context and we are not in anyway defensive. We appreciate where we are corrected. Our staff on arrival as norm take guests' luggage to the room but surprisingly, you opted not other than take it yourself. When you were served with welcome juice, you also declined. When our staff came to take orders for dinner you indicated to the waiter that you needed time to make up your mind and only placed the order while already seated in the restaurant. Being an ala carte restaurant, our policy always is to serve freshly prepared dishes, considerable time was necessary. The chef was attending to other clients who had placed their order earlier on. It is not true that you were the only client in the resort. The management was apologetic to that extend about the whole incident but you opted to cancel your reservation. All said and done, you have every right to complain and we always take our guests' concerns positively to improve our services. We have served hundreds of clients with over 94% satisfaction and will always listen and improve to areas where improvement is needed. We run our establishment from January to December and all guests and seasons are equally important and we do not have selective quality for low season and high season.

"Lizard or the other room on the first floor of the main building"
"One after the other was beautifully decorated, appointed with a combination of antique furnishings and comfortable seating and beds."
"Ask! All the rooms looks great but we just asked for a nice one and they gave us a beautiful suite."
"All Rooms are excellent but the "Temple of Love", inspired by Greece , is the most unique one."
