Few minutes by cab from the city center. Hotel tucked away on the ocean cliffs. Beautiful covered walk-ways. Very friendly staff. Clean rooms with air conditioners. Excellent bar & lounge & restaurant. Nice breakfast with plenty of fruit.

We went for 5 days, the place has an excellent view of the Ocean, and the Stuff is very very kind to us, when we arrived we weren't on their list ( communication issue on their side- the travel agent had their confirmation), still they accepted us and also provided us with Ocean view, though our booking was on a...

Stayed here for a night as part of a tour with Nomad. I liked this hotel. It's not too far from Stone Town- not walking distance but within reasonable distance in a taxi. Our room was big, very clean and comfortable. There are nice views from the hotel and the bar and restaurant have great views too. Staff were friendly.

Myself and my husband were booked in here from the 22nd December 2015 to the 2nd January 2016 with our 3 grandkids and we loved the adjoining rooms. We had our privacy and could still keep an eye on the kids. Food was awesome and the view from the restaurant and pool area was breathtaking. We would swim every morning... More

Very pristine and friendly service from all staff members. Right near DT Zanzibar and stone town. Am attending a wedding. Lots of walking in between the rooms too. Freshly squeezed Bungo, mango and passion juice along with sweet papayas are such a treat. We r staying here for one week to attend a grand wedding.

We stayed one night here and found the place very quiet, the staff very friendly and the food very good. There is a beautiful beach view from the breakfast restaurant and a variety of food available. We also ate dinner there which was also good with a variety of offerings. The hotel is close to the main part of Stonetown... More

I've stayed in stonetown, I've stayed in nungwi, and I'm heading to paje later this month. If you're looking for a place to stay that is quiet relaxing and away from the action of stonetown, this is where you want to be.

Yes the service is slow however the hotel is cheap compared to others in Zanzibar. The ocean views throughout the day were amazing to say the least. I throughly enjoyed swimming in the tranquil ocean. I loved the fact that I could get to the ocean from my room in 20 sec, literally. The food was great, I couldn't get... More
