    Very good

    Free wifi was not working in lodge accommodations, but only in restaurant and not all the time. Kivulinis actual location is a bit better than in search page displayed. Kivulinis managers have good connections with every other service providers in the island. On Mafia island you must pay a marine conservation fee too.
