We recently stayed here for 6 days after a safari in Tanzania. The hotel location was 'paradise'! The staff were excellent and made our stay a very enjoyable one. The Spa treatments were relaxing and enjoyable and there was plenty to keep our 14 year old happy! Look forward to visiting again!

The Sea Breeze restaurant in the massive beach bungalow is really nice, the food is great but the menu is slightly limited. The view is really nice, but remember to take a jacket or shawl as it gets pretty windy over there. The steak is a must have and the pasta too!

However, there are a few things that disappointed us. Firstly, when we checked in and arrived into our Rooms, it took the bags 40 minutes... More

We don't like all inclusives but we liked this one! Tides are important in Zanzibar so this coast is perfect unless you want a coral reef, which is on the east coast. Beautiful sea, great hotel, lovely staff, good food, nice pool. Would go back and that's rare.

Hotel is beautiful, but nothing different than a hotel in South Beach or Hawaii. The beach is beautiful. White sand and clear green water. Service was slightly better than a typical McDonalds. There are three sections of rooms; make sure to ask for ones closest to beach if you decide to stay here. I will never return here. Did I... More
