The rooms were basic but comfortable and cleaned every day and have a fridge but no closed wardrobe. Towels and sheets were clean everyday. The bathroom was very basic and the water pressure was awful, the shower was nothing more than a few drips. Breakfast was very basic. The staff are all really helpful and friendly, wifi doesn't work in all areas of hotel. Advertised as having its own private beach, thankfully this wasn't the case as we spent a lot of time watching the locals playing football etc on the beach, as there was nothing else to do. Very large rats running around the garden areas. Need to be careful if walking to the restaurants at night, as I had my bag snatched off my arm by guys on a scooter. The reception at hotel didn't seem interested even when I told them all my money had been stolen.

I, my wife, my brother, and my sister stayed at this hotel for four days. A nice hotel located on a high ground overlooking the ocean. The rooms are comfortable and are kept clean and tidy. The patios in front of the rooms gives more enjoyment to relax and watch the white sand coast and the ocean. The staff are all nice and helpful.

We booked this hotel for 1 night and it was not even close to what one should expect based on the photos displayed at booking . Com. The restaurant and bar areas were tragic and neglected. The lady in the reception at 19:00 that we arrived the most rude person in the entire zanzibar (hard to accomplish this). The internet was not working anywhere and although the receptionist agreed there was a problem, did not assist us further. Overall, the worst hotel from the 5 that we tried during our stay in zanzibar. The only reason we chose it was the fact it is near the airport, for our morning flight. Ps: don’t book in advance, the hotel is empty and they make last minute offers with a significantly lower rate (compared to the 90$ i paid 4 months in advance).

Very good breakfast. Nice view from the room, but the beach... far away from paradise. They cooked only 4 meal for lunch and dinner, every day the same. Grilled chicken, chicken sandwich, grilled fish and 🥳🥳 fish sandwich... the room was clean, but just at first sight. In the mosquito net were a big holes, in the bathroom many spiders...and gekons behind hangers. When we went out from the room (at night), because of the small hotel party 5m away from our room, we met a biggest rat😓. At last.... we had a huge hole in our room, they doest change it, because they miss our room👍🏻
