This hotel is stunning. The staff is incredibly welcoming, the atmosphere is very relaxing. The view is fabulous. I disagree with others comments on the staff. All of the people I dealt with were great. If you want to swim in the ocean, there is a beach but only accessable at low tide. If you go, please pay attention to the communities around you. This is part of the experience too. There is quite a contrast and if you are at this hotel you should be very thankful of your good fortune. It is educational to see how the locals live. The only issue is that it is an hour drive from Stone Town and the airport. Taxis are $60 each way.
