Room 8.0 / 10 Traditional, beautiful, intimate. The beach felt private as they only have a few bungalows.

Room 8.0 / 10 Pongwe was lovely but a long way from anywhere - it was $100 in a taxi to get anywhere! Plus there was not a lot of food choice available. Really friendly staff though and a beatiful beach and a lovely personal feeling throughout as is such a small hotel. Great if you really want to be in the middle of nowhere woth little to do but lay on the beach but if you are an explorer it probably is not the place to be. Perfect for a honeymoon escape though.
