Just spent a week at this lovely resort and would absolutely recommend it. The resort is so lovely that we would leave our room in the morning and not return til it was time to get ready for dinner so I would recommend the garden rooms rather than spending extra money on the beach rooms.
There is a lovely breakfast buffet and after that we would wander past the pool to go to the loungers under the trees overlooking the incredible blue ocean. The staff would bring towels and pillows down to set up us for the day. Through out the day staff would wander by with trays of fruit, fresh baked cookies and spritzer bottles of water if you were feeling hot and needed to cool down! Totally spoiled us. There was a lovely little lunch bar overlooking the water where we enjoyed lunch and snacks during the day. The water was incredibly warm and the shore fascinating with hermit crabs, shells and coral. One reason I chose this place was it was reported by my fellow tripadvisors that you wouldn't be hassled on the beach and they were right. We were hassled a lot in Stonetown so we were very happy to be left alone. There was unobtrusive security and I am sure if there was a problem it would be looked after.
There was a huge lounge area filled with sofas where the excellent wifi was available for free. Some nights there were musicians who were very good. The staff would play on three drums and clap and dance for several minutes to announce that it was meal time. The staff was always friendly and helpful. My new friend the restaurant manager was thrilled to surprise us with a dinner under the stars down on the beach where we were also serenaded by the musicians, the restaurant manager and our lovely waitress Grace. The food was excellent, and I was surprised by how good the sushi was.
We enjoyed kayaking and the sunset dhow snorkel cruise. The snorkeling was a little cloudy but the sailing with Capt Snake was lovely.
I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this place and look forward to returning some day.
