But the best of all is the staff. Very kind and friendly. They have some toys that my daughter would use. The place is big... More

I got back 3 weeks ago from a lovely relaxed stay at La Madrugada. We originally booked for 2 nights but extended for longer finding the place really welcoming. The staff and manager Mireia were fantastic, really friendly and helpful. The only negative is the food, unfortunately this really needs improving. Had the food been better we would have definitely... More

A nice place to spend your vacation - with good service and many friendly and helpful people. Thanks to everybody: Mireia, Solomon, Mary, Ali and all the other nice people who made our stay comfortable and unforgettable. The room was clean, very nicely equipped and wonderfully decorated - every day in another way.

I stayed here with my family for three nights, being my first visit in Makunduchi, but second visit in Zanzibar. During our stay we experienced a wonderful hospitality, an exceptional service from Management and staff: wonderful food, clean room and a relaxed bar at the swimming pool. Travelling from the Airport (an hour), gave us an expected glimpse of Jozani... More

Great hotel an hour from Stone Town so quiet beach and close to local village so a more 'authentic' experience. Hotel staff extremely friendly and helpful, Mirea was a fabulous host who organised many trips and events if you got bored. I did Stone Town, Spice Tour and a local wildlife walk with a boat ride in a traditional dhow... More

About one hour drive from Stonetown and hotel arranged cheap pick up from there. Free wifi, private beach, friendly and helpfull staff. Place to relax because no tv on the room! Reasonable prices for drinks and diner.
