“not worth the money and very unhelpful management who just want to take your money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

The staff were amazing but the management were rude, unfriendly and not helpful. The room was dirty, so was the pool and they charged for everything. it was seriously not worth the amount i paid and would recommend anyone to go stay there. the table clothes had stains, the food was not that good and you dont experiance the Zanzibar everyone talks about. I had to move hotels and could even get a proper refund to actually just be on vacation instead of everyone strategically placed to take more of my money. it was a horrible experiance. And to reinforce when the management doesnt care, then you know the place is not worth it!!!

1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

The place - like almost every other in southern Zanzibar is laughable. They charge horrendous prices and you get very little for it. To begin with - there is no beach, even if the picture on their homepage suggests it. I have rarely encountered so unfriendly and unmotivated personell. Food prices are way over the top. Organisation and cleanlyness is sub sub par and so is the diving offered. Trip manager charges 2-3 times the prices for excursions compared to others in the area. I pointed this out - 1 hour later I had a large dent i my rental car.....
. It is a joke. Don´t go there. Dont go to to southern Zanbibar ar all unlessyou like being ripped off. 80 dollars for a single tank dive!!!!!
The whole place and the whole area was a joke!
