Only two nights here, but I left as relaxed as if I'd been here a week. The setting is ideal, next to a beautiful beach which is well worth getting up early to watch the sunrise over. The rooms are pleasant, the wifi the best I found on Zanzibar.
The best bits are outside the rooms though, lovely gardens, a great new pool, plenty of places to sit and relax both in the sun and in the shade. There's also an amazing owner whose family is a part of both Zanzibar and African history, staff who are only happy to help, and a general atmosphere that is second to none.
It's not the hilton, so don't expect it to be, but it has all the facilities one needs and what it might 'lack' in terms of the fluffy towels and marble bathrooms it more than makes up for in the things that you can't see, but you feel, and it wraps you up a lot better than even the fluffiest of towels.
