I'm just back from 5 days at the resort. Overall, it was a good stay. Rooms are clean and spacious, although slightly lacking in amenities (i.e. no fridge, limited wifi etc.). Jetty bar is a fantastic spot for lunch, drinks etc. The beach is incredibly beautiful, a great place to spend many hours walking. Monkeys in the trees near the...

We loved this hotel during our 5-day stay in Zanzibar. Because it wasn't holiday season, it was very quiet in the hotel, but this was very good as the staff was very helpful, relaxed and friendly. We even got a free late check-out the day of our departure. The food is great and the view in the restaurant is amazing...

We were staying at a hotel nearby and devided to have lunch at the jetty bar, a pier well in the turquoise ocean water. The service was good, with a friendly staff ready to accomodate any request. We had a seafood platter and few drinks. Awesome. Great location for a drink or a meal. A bit more expensive than other...

We had a fantastic family holiday here. The bungalows are really well designed for families with kids and we loved the pool area. The housekeeping keeps the rooms nice and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food served in the restaurant was average and a bit "samey" but it is a remote location so they do quite well...

Beautiful hotel, nice decorated apartments and the jetti bar on the ocean is nice for evening cocktails. The restaurant hall with the ocean view is bautiful and the food is delicious! Once a week is a BBQ around the pool,the atmosphere is so romantic and unique. The staff is totally friendly and have always a big smile in their faces!...

Dear Katharina F. Thanks a lot for review us here on Tripadvisor. We would like to say thank you for staying with us and we really appreciate your warm words about our little paradise.
