I spent two nights with my wife for our honeymoon, in what I thought would be the best hôtel in Nungwi out of the hotels I booked, but unfortunately this turned our to be the worst. The hotel conception ( Rooms, Garden...) are good, the food is good but there were almost no people in the hotel and we felt like we're in some sort of a horror movie with barking dogs at night. No wonder it was empty as it did not even have a beach!! The pictures are so misleading, so be careful people this hotel has rocky sands, when it's low time the water will be a long walk away on rocks and when it's high time the water is just undeneath the resort and you cant swim. You have to take a taxi to go to a beach. The food was good but the service is so mediocre, its the slowest ever. For hotel that was only hosting a maximum of 10 people when I was there you had to wait over 40min to get your food. The breakfast is not a buffet and you also have to wait and ask again and again for all the stuff you ordered. Finally this establishment makes you pay an extra 3.5 dollars tax a part from the city tax which 2$ a night.

Unfortunately our stay here was not what we expected. The room was clean the first day but after that it was full of insects. The ones that were dead were not even cleaned up by housekeeping. The bed was high, too high for my 1,5 year old. And we had to make sure he didn't fall off the bed. The food in the restaurant was awful. The food that I wanted to order that was on the menu wasn't available and the food we ended up ordering was a disaster. Like chicken that's red. The breakfast was ok due to the fresh pancakes. We actually booked the hotel because there was a playground for kids. To our surprise there was no playground... the swimming pool was a greenish colour when we arrived so we never used the swimming pool. After the first day we never stayed in the hotel, we only slept there and left every day asap to go to leisure in the nearby hotels. We were happy to leave. The only good thing was Joesph at the gate (helped us out) and Eva at the reception who was very nice.

We stayed there our honeymoon. After coming we got room quickly and flowers welcome on our bed. It was nice. Room was small and moist, not nice. Only hotel area was fine. There was no beach, it is necessary to walk at other place if you want to be on a beach. Meal in restaurant was horrible. We were in many restaurants in Zanzibar, but it was nowhere so terrible like at this place. We were waiting for food more than 2 hours and you think "it´s Zanzibar, hakuna matata", but in other restaurants we didn´t wait so long. We got dessert after 3 hours altought it was only mango or pineapple and in restaurant were 6 people! Really?! Of course it was normally, we ordered something and they had not it, but the information about it came after 1 hours we were here. Why?? And the best - we were not first time in Africa, but we never had so big stomaching troubles. Even thougth we took probiotics, after second lunch we got big stomaching troubles and had fever more than 38 Celius degrees, diarrhea and vomit because of poisoned meal! We paid full board and couldn´t eat 2 days anything because of stomaching troubles. The staff said, it is not their problem, when we wanted back our money for the paid food we couldn´t eat. We didn´t have any troubles more in Zanzibar, only on this place. Hotel area is really nice but we don't recommend this hotel because of restaurant and terrible poisoned food! Fortunately we stayed there only 4 days.

This hotell is overpriced. The real level is max 3 stars. And the restaurant offer average quality food and service is not good. If you expect great experience don't go there. The rooms are amortized and very often are no electricity.
