Lodge was lovely, the bed was amazingly comfortable. Good black out curtains & morning sun was super. We took advantage of the room bbq and it was lovely. Lodges are well spaced out and it seems like you have beach to yourself. However the beach was dirty, lots of rubbish which was upsetting. Might be a good thing to do a guest rubbish collection incentive. It was too cold to use the pool , which was one of the reasons we booked the place , it would be good if these were temp controlled.also the WiFi was a bit tempremental, could be better. We did one of the set dinners which was ok, but didn’t enjoy the ‘movie’ set up, it wasn’t very 5 star . Overall however it was a great way to spend 2 winter nights .

Very nice place, we will be back! The rooms/tens are amazing with your own private pool and patio (you see birds, insects and gazelles) Wi-Fi is one of the best I ever seen in a hotel A lovely ocean beach full of shells and crabs, the sand is good too The staff is just great, thanks Khalifa, Madiha and all of them The breakfast and dinner buffet contained high quality food (omelettes in breakfast and mixed grill at night were great), however, it can still be improved, sometimes you would find not-so-fresh items in the breakfast buffet (refrigerated) and some items in the dinner buffet were cold. In total, we loved our stay and the place and we will definitely be back

A couple of nights in Kingfisher Lodge

Terrible food, expensive stay, bad attitude and finally they decided to throw our expensive swimming suits after forgetting them in the backyard of the cottage, instead of holding them so we can take them back, and after several attempts to speak to them over the phone they said they were thrown away.
