Just returned from a dream holiday at this resort. All in all this is one of the most amazing places I've been to. Nothing is ever perfect though and there is always room for improvement even if the negative points I make here did not make for a less enjoyable week. We arrived at about 8pm (a group of 22...

5* accommodation in the most beautiful location ever!!! All rooms face the ocean and ours (deluxe family) was literally a hop skip and jump from the beach. There is a lovely saline pool which kept my kids entertained for hours on end. The staff are available to keep the young 'uns occupied with games etc. There is also a program... More

This hotel is a great place to unwind if you have just had a safari trip. The hotel grounds itself are stunning, the staff are always smiling and offer a top class service, the choice of foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner are great (you even have a snack bar by the beach) and the ambience is one of relaxation....

Nothing at the hotel, pleasant as it was, stood out as exceptional to me. The room was pretty but I would have loved a more traditional Zanzibari feel. The food was average - hotel buffet, the same as you can find in any hotel anywhere in the world. The beach was probably the best feature for me.

The rooms are laid out in such a way they all have sea view and are in a three story layer with the roof of the lower one being grassed to make a veranda for the next level up.
