Five of us found Kiponda a welcoming spot to relax in after sightseeing in Zanzibar. They have running water showers - a plus not often found. The rooms are very clean and attractive, the staff extremely helpful, and a top floor that used to be a restaurant with big open and attractively furnished space for breakfast and/or relaxing in after a busy day sightseeing. I welcomed the breakfast. In Tanzania I am avoiding fresh fruit and vegetables which limits my diet. Corn flakes and good other cereals with delicious yogurt were offered, eggs, toast, and much more.
