I have 1 down thing to say...there was no "beach" to speak of. you can't swim here and this is a bit misleading in the name for me. Apart from that, Food, 5-star! Drinks, 5-star! Service and a smile! Amazing rooms. Close to the airport. Amazing pool. There are beaches to explore around the area though.

I stayed here two nights whilst in norther Mozambqiue on business! It is a great hotel. Yes it is large, spread out but the service is good, the rooms very good, mine had a sea view and the ability to leave the window open but have inspect protection so a great way to go to sleep listening to the waves...

Having travelled for 3 tiring and troublesome weeks in northern Mozambique, we decided to spoil ourselves before flying home, and have a 4-day luxurious beach hotel as a last port of call. We were not disappointed. Our beach-front rooms were clean and comfortable, the bathroom with shower and bathtub most convenient, and the little patio out back a good place... More

The hotel is beautifully located on the beach, though the water itself is best avoided because of jellyfish and sea urchins. Rooms range from standard, rather small offerings to large and stylish apartments. Vegetarians beware: there is little here for you, and staff seem to be quite thrown by the notion that millions of people on the planet do not... More

Great place, top class and one of the best in Pemba and Mozambique. Friendly service and great accommodation. The beer is always cold, even if its a bit expensive, but hey, its Mozambique. Always willing to stay here when in Pemba, can't go wrong!

Stayed here on business for 3 nights in Feb 15. The hotel is probably the only reasonable hotel in Pemba. It is situated about 10-15 mins from airport. To get there you will get a flavour of the area, basically the roads are unmade and that's what takes the time. Hotel itself, first impressions not bad, photos probably don't do... More

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.......
