This place is set in a truly breath taking location. The hotel is run by extremely friendly staff. The rooms are superb- clean, very tastefully decorated (with a lovely touch of fresh flowers on the bed!!). The infinity pool makes the experience luxurious, with the food in the restaurant also being super. I stayed during the Zanzibar Beach and Watersports... More

We could not have been happier with our choice of beach hotel in Zanzibar. The view is amazing, sea is gorgeous and the beach is not completely secluded but fairly quiet. We particularly enjoyed the infinity pool, which was used particularly when the tide goes out and the sea becomes too shallow to swim in. The food at the hotel... More

We stayed here in February 2014 and these are my views: The good: 1. The location - spectacular. Watching the tide come in and go out was fantastic. The many different shades of blue, green and white were wonderful 2. The people - friendly and helpful. We were worried about the weather on the day we were due to go... More

The location of the hotel is superb. The views, both low and high tide, are incredible and the walks along the beach are truely a pleasure. The hotel gardens are beautifully presented and the pool is clean and very inviting. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food, although the service is a bit slow, is well worth... More

Thanks for your feedback and custom. In the couple of days between your departure and your review our maintenance crew, already aware of the issues you mentioned, had already fixed the vast majority of these with permanent solutions rather than cosmetic "lipstick on a pig" techniques. For example, all shower heads in every room have been replaced by special rust... More

Visited the hotel with a group of friends. We were made to feel really welcome and as we were a largeish party we were advised to sit in the bar with a beer while they sorted us out each in turn. I was really happy with my room; flowers on the bed, clean towels and a shower with hot water... More

This is a marvelously situated small hotel, but it is in need of some maintenance. (In my case it was the showerheads and water fountain). But the mosquito nets were perfect, as was the air conditioning. We thought that the restaurant was great (the thai chicken soup notably was fantastic) - though the service was generally slow. The meals were... More
