Small and cosy hotel located in the fisherman's village of Kizimkazi serving delicious fruit cocktails every morning with the room service every day, air-conticioned and with great price. Not needed nothing else. The only charming problem is the electricity that is disappearing every day, but no worries is making this place romantic!

I will say that the staff was quite nice, the rooms were clean. However, they just seemed to want money in cash and in American. I felt this was rather ridiculous. I planned a Dolphin trip and the people taking me there weren't even ready to go when I was told to be ready. We had to drive to a... More

I recommend booking day trips with them, since some of the fishermen by the beach are a bit shady (one of them called Jambo (James) ripped me off with a fake deal). Snorkeling in... More

Complements to staff, guys you were awasome. You gave us confort that the decision we made to visit the beach instead of being in the city was a good one. We enjoyed everything including the meals.

While planning a short "hooray" trip to Tanzania, I have decided to avoid big cities and went straight on to search for some hide-away on the Zanzibar island. Arrived late afternoon to Dar-es-Salaam on EK 725 daily flight from Dubai International. Unfortunately because of traffic I could not make it for the last ferry which costs USD 35 and had... More
