I have been round the world and stayed in many resorts but this has got to be one of the best places we have stayed. The staff are friendly, especially the Marketing Manager Shazma, who went out of her way to make sure that the guests were taken care of, especially the children. High levels of Customer Service and the... More

Avoid the bustle of Stonetown, yet remain only a short taxi ride away. Great security! AC works. Professional staff. Next door to Mtoni Palace ruins. Don't miss out on Mtoni night gala affair. Swimming pool excellent. Get a boat ride to prisoner's island and go snorkeling.

On arrival at the hotel, it had all the makings of a disaster as I was told that my reservation for a Palm Court room made via Bookings.com had not gone through and I could either have a club room or look for another hotel. I really wanted a room with a verandah and sea view, so looked at a... More

My wife and I spent a week here. Nothing to really write home about, except maybe the very excellent lime juice served at the pool-side bar! The rooms are average, the food is average. Nothing bad, but nothing spectacular either. The staff are friendly and helpful, and they do have a variety of day trips they can organize for guests,... More

This hotel is in a really good location if you want to be in town. It must have been good about 5 years ago but no maintenance has been done since. Completely over priced for what you get. Food and service is basic. Pay another $20 and you can get a interconnecting room for a couple and 2 kids at... More

Joya and her staff are wonderful and the hotel is a great for families and couples alike. It is near to Stone Town's attractions but also far enough away to be relaxing. The family suite was very convenient and we look forward to coming back soon to this wonderful, low-key hotel. Only area of improvement would be the breakfast spread,... More
