Getting there was a bumpy ride, we visited in Monsoon season so the road to the hotel was full of puddles and potholes. The stunning beach location was definitely worth it. The restaurant, bar and pool had views of the private beach. It was the most beautiful place to watch the sunset. There were also several restaurants and bars along... More

Rooms and facilities are extremely simple and old. No room door label instructions for cleaning. Check out last day, before we leave, entered the room without notifying us in at 11:00 for cleaning. If you do not want to enter your room, said in the first entry must reception. Air conditioning was not working properly and not enough. The rooms... More

The hotel is located in the best side of the Island. The beach is amazing and the sea in breathtaking. The structure is really simple in the African style. Don't expect a luxurious hotel. The restaurant is on the sea! No insects or animals found in rooms. Suggested if you are flexible and don't want a luxurious hotel.

Resort full of Italian guys, so everybody expect I am also Italian. Entrance to resort is really strange, and I was afraid at the beginning where I am going, but it was nice. Resort is quite big with small houses with pool, direct access to beach and nice fauna. You can also play ping pong, beach volleyball, darts, etc. I... More

This hotel is not worth staying at. It has a good location in Nungwi, however there are many hotels nearby too. Largest complaint was the cleanliness of the room. Upon checking in, our bathroom was dirty, there were bugs on the floor and in the bed. Other things such as the A/C did not work, people on the property with... More

Air conditioning was not functioning and there was dead insects remains on the bed and in the corners of the room.

We stayed 3 nights here at our trip to Zanzibar, and it was horrible.. When we arrived at the front gate we were told that the gate didn't work, and that the hotel was closed. After communication help from our taxi driver we finally understood, that we had to go to the beach and walk there to get to the... More

This hotel is in a great location on the beach, about a leisurely 10 minute stroll from the main 'strip' of bars and restaurants. The place is full of Italians and sometimes only the local staff would be the ones to talk to. If you just want to relax and laze by the pool or beach, I'm sure this place... More

I stayed for 5 nights and was overall pleased with the place. They had a wifi area, my included breakfast was decent (nothing to rave about), the pool was nice and the location was perfect. If you're Italian or speak Italian, this place is great. However, as a solo American traveler, I didn't feel very accepted. The few times people... More
