Very nice resort at beautiful beach. Tide during the day significantly changes distance of the sea, but when it is close, it is a wonderful swimming. There is also nice swimming pool near the beach. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. Food is good, diverse range of local and Italian meals is offered. Almost all visitors are Italian so animation... More

I have not spoken Italian since I was a child spending time with my grandmother, which I enjoyed very much. To get to the bottom line quickly, this resort is for really just for Italian speaking people. All of the activities and announcements are only in Italian. In general the staff tried their best to accommodate us, though it was... More

Small things like paying for wifi and the safe (which wasn't in the room) niggled. The staff really make this place and can't do enough to help but the towels in the bathroom... More

Welcome was ordinary and standard. Rooms standard and empty. Big rooms with least number of furniture (non minimalist). Air-conditioner did not work properly. Very Italian and non-Italian guests might feel unwelcome. The food was great and Christmas dinner was really special - high-lite of the culinary experience. All in package wine was very bad and left a cheap feeling as... More

I traveled with mother in law, so she was affraid of local people, but after 1-2 days she said "jambo" everyone, who was black :D. It was little annoyed when you wanted to go swimming in the ocean..i mean, a lot of masais and local... More

As with all my reviews I will review each aspect separately in terms of location, hotel, staff, service and additional comments. Zanzibar as a destination: Breath taking, definitely a place I would recommend anyone visiting. It’s still a very authentic beach destination that hasn’t been tainted by extreme commercialization. For eco conscious guests you will find this place a dream... More
