Had problems with credit card, hot water, power and housekeeping staff knocking on my door at 8 am every morning. Flies at breakfast not great. While i realize it is a area problem they don't try very hard to keep them off the very plain breakfast buffet, For the price compared with world wide prices definitely not value for money.......

Internationally maybe not really a 5-star hotel, but for Pemba it is. I have been there several times every year since they opened in 2001 / 2002 and it is a very charming place. They have been growing very much since the Gas sector took off in Pemba, some 5 years ago, but is still a very nice place. Quality... More

Some areas are a little tired,but overall a great hotel. Nautical restaurant does amazing sea food at a reasonable european price. But its not cheap due to the amount of oil and gas traffic in pemba at the moment. Its a bit isolated but great views out into the indian ocean.

I was looking for the perfect end to my friend's run across Africa, somewhere beautiful that would be worth filming, and I found it at Avani. The entrance is impressive, the reception (which Emma ran through) is beautiful and the sea front (where she finished) is gorgeous. The staff were very helpful, welcoming Emma and guiding her through the hotel... More

the hotel is very nice and typical, the staff is friendly, the structure is very special. An unfortunate event had happened. But after the clarifications with Executive Assistant Manager, the problem was solved. Only professionalism, kindness and caparbiety's some people can bring harmony in relationships.
