This is by far the most relaxing atmosphere I have experienced during my travels so far. The water of the ocean comes, when it's high tide directly to the rocks in front of the hotel. There is like 10 meters fine white sand, good for little kids to take a bath in the 28 degrees warm water without any waves....

This hotel is in a great location on the east coast of the island overlooking the sea. The pool is lovely and you can look out over the sea behind. The rooms are fine although a little overpriced considering there's no a/c or toiletries in the bathroom. I think the management has changed quite recently and herein lies the problem....

The hotel was booked for me by a travel agent. I have to say I would not choose it myself as it felt a little short of my expectations. The rooms were clean, spacious, the service friendly and helpful. The location was excellent - very quiet without much disturbance from traders. However the place was a bit run-down and not...

+ very friendly staff, nice beach, great bungalowa with nice balcony view, calm and quiet place, swimming pool ~ limited selection of food - really bad bread The beach is only accessable during low and intermediate tide, but not during high tide. So be careful when you walk to a different place. Make sure you'll be back in time otherwise...

Very friendly and intimate hotel with a tropical well kept garden. Almost Maroccan style. The originally german owner and her staff is very willing to give you everything you want. The information on activities is very good. Tip to the owners is to provide free water, coffee and tea (which is often the case at other hotels).

Stayed here for 6 nights in July 2016. The accommodation is simple but pleasant. Rooms are spacious and bathrooms too. Water needs to be preheated before you can run hot water. The decor of the bathrooms could be improved, but was good enough. The pool area and terrace over the waterfront is great. Lots of deck chairs and sun beds...

So, we arrive and the room is not prepared, no towels, no toilet paper, no soap, even no bulblights outside. So after a few hours, and after asking 3 times they solved it. Ok. Then we have lunch. Mediocre pasta, asked for penne pesto and they serve us tomato fusilli. Ok. Then the dinner. We asked for a seafood platter...

Our room: not prepared when we arrived (no towels,no soap, no bulbs...),but they cleaned everyday. Exchange rates: try to pay in schillings.if you pay in dollars, they change the rate 1dollar-2000tsh (the don't care about current exchange rate), so you will lose money. Food: avoid seafish To sum up, you pay more than what you get ,overprized, no trusty management....

The location of the hotel was on the East Coast of Zanzibar. I was greeted very warmly on arrival. I was travelling alone and before any admin stuff was finalised, I was shown to my room. I was offered a beer and had many wonderful exchanges with the staff who were all incredibly friendly. The hotel is situated on the...

The Location is Fantastic. You have low and high tide. During low tide the Beach just great. You can walk endless in the Sea and just enjoy. During high tide you have a classic beach. There are not many people around, so you can really enjoy your time there. The Rooms are really nice with a great view. The Staff...
