While Sentido Neptune Village may not be a luxury property, it is clean and comfortable, boasting a good range of facilities and activities. A bright and breezy open-air lobby features typical Swahili architecture; mounted Arabesque wall lamps and hanging lanterns, carved wooden chests, daybeds with sails in fiery shades of orange and red, and a central water fountain. A pergola dripping in bougainvillea provides a shaded walkway through the heart of the property.
On site, guests may participate in a game of beach volleyball, table tennis, darts or mini golf, chill out in the TV area, join the animation team in its variety of activities, or even throw some shapes at the 'disco' (well, on the open-air dance floor) after dark. While it's hardly the place you would want to get some work done, a small business centre is available to guests and WIFI connection throughout the resort is complimentary.
For the younger ones there's a great kid's club (TV, bunk beds, toys and activities) with its own outdoor playground complete with mini football nets. It's worth mentioning that the gardens are spacious and well-maintained, perfect for families and anybody who values space! The centrepiece of the resort is the lovely pool area, with a large pool and for younger swimmers, a large shallow pool as well. In one corner is a sunken swim up bar, although the huge 360° main bar is at a very convenient distance. We also loved the enormous and majestic baobab tree nestled amongst the rooms, the expansive lawns and beachfront and from here, the wonderful views over the Indian Ocean.
