We stayed for 1 week as a family in this wonderful resort and we enjoyed every single moment of it. It has one of the best location in Zanzibar with its gorgeous beach.

My wife and I had a wonderful time in this lovely resort. The staff has been very nice and responsive to our needs (10+), the location of the room was perfect and its cleanliness flawless. Dining has been a marvelous surprise as well... perhaps because the chef is Italian :)

For its architecture, the confortable rooms, the excelent restaurant, the fantastic beach and for the very kind and competent personel, this hotel really deserves 5 stars in full. If we want to find something negative, then we have to point out the lying beds on the beach and by the swimming pool: elegants but very heavy!

The resort is clearly set up for Italian tour groups who get preferential treatment, organised events, and likely better prices. Whilst we loved being on the beach and walking on the promenade we were consistently confused...

The good = nice hotel, grounds lovely, beach gorgeous, lovely maid (Boopee), adequate rooms. The bad = after booking this hotel online I emailed them to advise I wanted a twin room as I was travelling with a friend. I also enquired about airport transfers. After no response I emailed again. Again no reply, so I ended up booking transfers...

Everything was just perfect. The hotel is beautiful and kept in a super clean state. The hotel staff (local and animation) is extremely friendly and always prompt in helping you with anything. The hotel doctor was on point. The beach is beautiful and you will have no trouble in relaxing from the moment you arrive. The food is very good...
