Excellent food plus clear and clean beaches with no harrassment from beachboys. Good view of the beach from poolside and hotel location is serene,far from the hustle and bustle of down town Zanzibar.Good for relaxing.From the time of checking in the service was fast and efficient with a welcome non alcoholic drink.The hotel has an automatic standby generator in case of power failures(which are quite frequent in Zanzibar),with adequate capacity to power all amenities including the air conditioning. The standard room was clean and spacious with a split unit air conditioning system which was adequate.The bed was the traditional Swahili type fitted with a mosquito net albeit there were no mosquitoes during our stay.What was a pleasant surprise was the innovative fixing of the flat screen TV to the horizontal top bed bar, with a downward screen tilt thereby giving the room occupier the liberty to comfortably watch the Dstv channels while lying in bed.Cupboards were spacious with a safe provided to store valuables.Hair dryer and water boiler with tea bags and instant coffee bags were provided in the room.Bathroom and toilet were immaculately clean.Food at the top floor restaurant which gives a panoramic view of the beach was excellent,although the hotel management should consider air conditioning the restaurant as it can be quite hot during lunch time. Staff were courteous and friendly and cutlery clean.Restaurant prices were quoted in U.S.Dollars and were reasonable.The ground floor restaurant is adjacent to the beach and boasts of fans at every table for cooling and shooing away the occasional fly. One can book diving /snorkeling/boat trips.The hotel has visa card facilities but lacks a foreign exchange bureau for hard currency holders.Guests have to go to the adjoining hotel which has a foreign exchange bureau.All in all ,I would love to be a repeat guest at this hotel.
