4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We stayed at the hotel in January 2015. Did some research before we booked and found this hotel offered more than others when it came to life's little luxuries. Great location if you are into sunsets and sipping Pina Coladas whilst working on your tan. Go for the all inclusive package as they offer a wide variety of drinks and... More

A lovely resort with good position and ambience. Rooms are excellent and well maintained. The grounds are very attractive with good quality swimming pools lounges bars. The disappointment came with he food. It was very ordinary, some meat inedible. Expected a lot better from a resort that is very good in all other respects. Perhaps chef was on holidays.

the service is top notch. Good customer service with a smiling face. Buffet option for dinner was ok, though they could expand it and make it less seafood based . Rooms were a delight and overall experience at the resort was serene and quite relaxing. worth giving it a go

Jambo! Thank you for choosing - us and thank you for your review. We do take all our comments seriously, and will let the kitchen know about possibly too much sea-food ~ could this possibly have been on a 'Sea Food' dinner buffet evening? regardless, we want all our guests to be as happy and comfortable as possible at all...

Have used this facility, as well as hotels in Stone Town, on and off for a couple of years. Half hour drive from Stone Town and from airport, serves as a very pleasant base if you are willing to do the commute. The alternative for the business traveler is a hotel in Stone Town itself none of which begin to... More

Stayed for 5-nights in Feb and.... Good Points: 1) customer service. Have lived in and visited Tanzania repeatedly over the last 10-yrs and this hotel's HR policy and how they treat and train their staff is some of the best examples I think I've ever seen. Excellent customer service throughout our stay: genuinely top draw and the staff clearly enjoy... More

Stayed with my 2 year old daughter for a few days. Lovely pools and comfy room. We enjoyed our stay. They have a kids club stocked with toys for littluns - bricks and colouring and all sorts. Slight shame that the kids club wasn't manned as advertised and was also not cleaned for the duration of our stay. The food... More

Jambo! Thank you very much for your review. With regards to the Kids Club, the comments there are a bit concerning, as this area is supervised whenever there is a need for it i.e. children on the property and most especially, the cleaning of the department. This will be brought up for discussion with our team urgently, but please be... More

This is one of the best hotels in Zanzibar with excellent facilities spread across a vast landscape. Good location and very well maintained. Restaurants are good but limited variety of vegetarian food. Vegetarians have to speak to the chef to get something as per their requirements. Rest everything is quite good.
