Kelvin, the manager was the first to meet and greet and as a manger he was always there no matter what time of day willing to assist with all requests. Sebastian was the waiter / assistant also always smiling and always helpful. As a place for us to rest... More

I went with my girlfriend after she volunteerd for two months in Tanzania. Everything weve heared about the hotel was true and maybe even better. Tidy, clean and lovely rooms. The breakfast was amazing and the manager Kelvin was great. He showed us the (2min) walk to the beach and where we could find the best restaurants. There was free... More

This place is pretty good, 2 min walking to the main beach, big and clean rooms with TV. Breakfast is very nice there is pool and you can pay with credit card (not very common around the island unless pricey hotels). Calvin who runs the business is very friendly and helpful. Recommended

I arrived here late at night, and Calvin and Seb (the two main men) were waiting for us, helping us with our luggage to our rooms. The rooms are really nice, with two beds, good lighting and a nice balcony. I really wanted to use the shower, but unfortunately there was no hot water, and only a dribble of cold... More

My friend and I went to a super cheap, creepy backpackers place the first night and were over the moon to find zanzibar star and move in. Totally worth the money. Nice rooms, new bathrooms, air conditioning, room cleaning, restaurant, pool... And Kevin the manager is the man! So helpful and kind. It's a short walk from the beaches and... More

We stayed here for six nights, it is a nice place, with beautiful gardens, less noise compared to the areas along the beach and very clean. Good for relaxing and is affordable compared to other hotels around. Breakfast was very nice, the room had working AC and nice balcony but aren't very spacious though. About 3mins away from the beach... More
