Don't miss the Friday night party with an Acrobatic show, it's one of a kind! The perfect way to gather sense of culture. The acrobats are with unbeatable energy, outstanding skills, and unbelievably fearless. I would've bet this is the best party on the island, but I was told most parties there are as good.

This was a quick change of destination as my Maldives trip had to be cancelled....but what a great alternative..Zanzibar and the Waikiki Beach Resort for 4 nights....absolutely brilliant. I had a quick read up on Tripadvisor before booking and to be fair the Friday night party is loud but were not bothered. Food and serving staff are great always helpful...

Thankyou for your wonderful positive review We are very happy to know that you enjoyed your stay with us.

This is a great beachfront place to stay.We stayed in a Delux queen room and really appreciated the aircon at night. The beach and view is stunning and the food at Coco Jambo bar is good. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. They also have a beach party every Friday.

This is a nice spot on the east coast. The food was decent and the owners were present saying hello and making sure the stay was good. They have a great beach and a bunch of chairs and benches for laying out. Also their pizza is great!
