    We immensely enjoyed our time at Banda for all the reasons stated in the other reviews. One thing not mentioned were the magical nights when the fishing boat lights would dot the water. The beach was clean, the water warm and clear. My children spent hours exploring the shoreline. The food was delicious and the company friendly. I was also impressed that the cabins had comfortable pillows and bedding…not always a luxury at Ugandan hotels.

    As I’m sure others have mentioned, the buildings desperately need renovations. But that didn’t matter so much to us as the fact that they hadn’t been cleaned that well either. We battled spiders and their webs in both the bathroom and our cabin. I understand it’s a tropical location, but I think the staff could give the cabins and public areas a better cleaning. We were also disappointed to learn that we were paying over triple the amount for the ferry to get to Banda than the other passengers. I understand that we’re mzungus but I still like to pay a fair price and it just didn’t seem fair to me.
