Reading previous reviews you may be a bit unsure of this resort – don’t be! As other guest already confirmed we can tell as well, the service is great and the hotel to be recommended. The problem is that it seems the former manager made a bad job, but since the owners replaced him through Simone and his work it... More

We booked through airbnb, great success! They wanted to attract travellers from different places (the guests are mainly Italian and the management likewise) and priced it very reasonably. I hope they keep up the good work, together with the price. I'm not into chi-chi resorts and this is by no means a 5-star, but it's very attractive and well kept,... More

We booked through air bnb at very short notice. We were travelling on a budget and this place was very cheap at £22 per night for a double room. We arrived to the incredibly grand reception area and were greeted with a delicious cold fruit juice and taken to our room. The room was spectacular for the price. Right on... More

The hotel was also fighting with the workers (we took video) about non paid salary. I was sleeping in the clothes becasue I had fear to get something bad from the bed and... More

This was the worst experience of my life- avoid this hotel at all cost!! We booked to stay at this hotel for 6 nights paying €200 a night (€1200 in total) so we though the place would be okay. This hotel was hell on earth, rundown, no air-conditioning and extremely rude staff. We ended up staying one night and could... More

We were sent to this hotel when we were turned away from the Ora Makuna Majiwe one we booked and paid for and after visiting Myblue in Nungwi. Again, in the brochure it looks ok, even on sites it looks okay. But, it's very run down, the swimming pool was green and the food was terrible and almost non-existant! The... More
