kids around the Summerland hotel Hadibo - Socotra

kids around the Summerland hotel Hadibo

Summerland Hotel: Hadibo finest Hotel

The Summerland hotel in Hadibo is owned by the Summerland travel group and it is a very basic clean hotel with cold running water. The the hotel is on a dusty dirty street (like the rest of the town) and is cement block/rock place that has the architecture of a cardboard box in faded out blue and white. The place is not the Ritz for sure but has very good food and very friendly helpful staff. The do have satellite TV if you do not want to miss your game - but that is even surrelistic in this remote place. I think this is really what one would call a guest house more than a hotel it has nice large bedrooms with a clean but common bath.
