This is a big hotel settled in the most touristic zone of Zanzibar. The beach is beautiful, the sea is wonderful, there is a lush tropical garden in the property: that's all. The rooms, at least ours, are dated: our bathroom was a nightmare,small and with a rusty bathtub. We had problems with the flush and had to call several... More

We stayed at this hotel for seven days after an awesome Safari in the Mara. Beautiful extensive grounds. Food and the helpfulness and politeness of the staff was excellent so was the pool and the private beach were you could swim in the warm Indian Ocean. The only draw back was the rooms - small bathrooms, single-type wardrobes and of... More

Went here with my family after a safari trip in Tanzania over Christmas break. I loved everything about this resort. There is so much to do and see. From sunbathing all day on the beautiful beach, to henna tattoos, to fishing, to eating at the many restaurants they have, to attending their fun African nights, to shopping handmade African goods...

This property is fabulous, clear seas, gorgeous landscaped gardens a truly idyllic location.When you arrive you are greeted by friendly staff with hibiscus iced tea and cooling towels but unfortunately it goes downhill from there. Admittedly my views are coloured by the fact that every member of our party contracted a very nasty vomiting & diarrhoea virus at the resort,... More

If you travel to Zanzibar, this is the only resort I recommend. The rooms (I recommend the ocean view (third level) rooms) are spacious, AC is excellent, clean, the WIFI works in the 3rd level rooms. The beach is clean and oustanding. The personnel is very attentive, very friendly and professional. Very well trained people. The restaurants have good food... More

Like many other people, we chose this hotel based on the other trip advisor reviews. We had already been travelling for a month around Africa and we were looking forward to relaxing and hanging out on the beach. While the property was advertised as a 5 star, we were not expecting the 5 star experience but a pleasant time in... More

We spent 9 nights at the hotel after a 2-week safari in Tanzania. The location is worth the one hour trip from the airport. The beach and the swimming pool are perfect to rest and relax. The gardens are really beautiful with amazing flowers. The food at the main restaurant is good and the items proposed at the buffet change... More

if you are looking for a place for destination wedding with a big group this is it. The couple can hide in the sister hotel Diamond Star of the East while the rest of the party revellers can enjoy the amazing hotel and great service.

I stayed at this hotel after reading the good reviews on Tripadvisor. However, in reality, this hotel was quite a disappointment (especially, considering the average daily rate being charged). By no means is this property a 5 star hotel. The service is absolutely horrendous. Most of the hotel staff have no service etiquette and clearly have not been trained to... More
