    Before I write a review I want to note that I am an African-American so there are cultural differences and we visited in May which I heard was a low season. First off, I was visiting with an African Ancestry group and I am not multilingual so I was limited by my tour guide due to language. Second, It’s a 2-4 hr boat ride to get there off the coast of Bissau. The boat ride wasn’t bad. I usually get sea sick but I was ok on this. Third, I hate to say but as an American I showed my true colors. Electricity and running water was only available from about 16:00 - 04:00. There were no screens in the windows and no A/C in the room. No internet available to communicate back home. Also mind you, I went here after being in Bissau for 5 days so I was close to my wits end. Lastly, I will say the place was BEAUTIFUL. Air was fresh, and the food was AMAZING. I did some boxing with Imany too. If I was more culturally attune with what to expect I would have had a better time. Since then I’ve tried to not be so reliant on technology but I also was there away from my wife and kids. Will I go back? Yes.

    Heaven on Earth! Priscine beach fully for yourself, amazing food, helpful and super-friendly staff. This is one of my few places on the planet that I would like to come back (and definitely will!)

    I don’t have enough words to thank Dakosta for welcoming us when me and my friends were a kind of lost in Bubaque without a place to spend the weekend. Even without the “hotel” officially opened and “finished” (they were doing a renovation), we had an amazing time and the place is becoming a little pearl in the middle of this unknown paradise - the Bijagós. Last but not least, Dakosta and his team were so friendly and kind. We shared lovely and wonderful moments. I absolutely recommend it. We hope to come back soon!
