I toured the island and stayed in a beach resort on the coast and got to know the other beach resorts in that area. The difference between these and my stay at the Serena Inn in Stone town was shockingly different.
The local staff in Serena seem to be well looked after and the hotel seem to invest in this resource. In other hotels, they are literally ordered around like slaves. Of course, the difference is that you also get a magnificant level of service in the Serena Inn because of this.
A really classic traditional hotel. The breakfast is one fit for kings.
A point to note - I did not get round to using it but they said that they offer a free shuttle to the beach, so you can truly get the best of both worlds of town and beach by choosing the Serena.
