Service excellent, friendly and helpful staff. Breathtaking views, white beaches. All arrangements were in place and the group loved the venue and destination. DJ Lee at the Sunset Lounge was their favourite. Thank you to all the staff and Zantours for the ground arrangements - Excellent service.

It is a fantastic hotel at a beautiful setting. The facilities are excellent and the staff very professional. Most of the rooms have a sea view and the rest a lovely garden view. magnificent gardens, swimming pool and bar area. Only draw back is the distance from the airport and main city.

After a long safari through the inner land, my family and I decided to spend a week in Zanzibar to relax. Unlucky we were, as there was only one day with a decent weather though not hotel's fault.

The gardens are what I found most attractive. The environment is clean and friendly, Food was fresh and TASTY, the hotel caters very well to young families with young children. Loved the fact they even availed sleeping cots for our toddler and baby, and nanny services that were affordable. Would definitely love to go back again and again and again....

As resorts go it is huge but also very discreet. The food was good in the buffet area with very attentive staff. The beach grill I thought was the best whilst the restaurant on the jetty was good. Spa very nice. It did have a package holiday feel at times - maybe it was the time of year. One thing...
