We stayed there three night, and regretted not to stay longer. The bungalows are managed by a very nice owner and you can feel the touch of Africa everywhere. It's very clean, organized, the staff is available and nice. The rooms are quite big, the showers are in bathroom without the ceiling so you can look up at the palm...

The rooms here are really cool, the bathrooms are open roof and it's the coolest feeling to take a nice shower while being able to look up at the surrounding palm trees. The staff are all friendly and the seafood is AMAZING. we had one cocktail called KilliMeSoftly which i would definitely recommend. The ocean is crystal clear, there are...

Very nice people, amazing food, perfect to stay until late at night with the staff. Amazing view and fabulous place to spend a time with friends. The rooms could have conditioned air but all of the rest is perfect.

This is the friendliest, most laid back, beautifully located and delicious place ever. I was there October 2014 ASA single female traveller and have been dreaming of it ever since. You wake up next to an azure ocean, take breakfast in an open restaurant, then either relax in the hammocks or go down to the beach directly in front of...

What a great place. Loved the outdoor bathroom. Lovely warm welcome from the owner shabby, friendly staff and stunning location. The food was lovely. I really can't fault this place at all. When the tides out take a walk to the reef or along the coastline. Be warned though. Don't let Sophia give you a manicure!!

After climbing the Kilimanjaro we ended our vacation with a relaxation at Zanzibar. This place is great to have a good rest! The employees will inform you shprtly about all the activities which you can do around the area and if you'd like it more to just relax and enjoy the sea and sun it's also a great idea looking...

We haven't stayed at the place, but only went there to enjoy the beach. Although we were there in high season (beginning of January) it wasn't crowded at all. The place looks pretty fantastic and offers everything your need for a relaxing day next to the sea. The only thing to avoid is the food - very western and not...

Random review, structure be damned. Wonderful location, great views, helpful staff and lots to do. The showers use salt water which is a nice touch. There are several hammocks on the premises and they are really comfy, its tempting to sleep under the night sky. The menu (breakfast, lunch and supper) changes on a daily basis and the food is...
