This is a beautiful place to stay and enjoy Zanzibar....rooms are nice, staff is friendly, they have beach access, good swimming pool and very good food. Their spa is also good, only drawback is there are very limited staff so you might not get your service fast or within the day. So when in Zanzibar, you can surely choose this...

Sadly, we have just left this wonderful resort. We have nothing but good things to say : the food was plentiful and tasty, especially the fish - they buy fresh from the local fisherman just down the beach. Our room was spacious, and kept sparkling clean, like the entire resort. Large, clean pool. Great bar , free soft drinks .....

We stayed at the resort for 3 nights as a way to relax during an 8 week travel intensive adventure in Southern Africa. It was terrific. Many Italians as I believe it is Italian owned. Pool was terrific. Activities fun but not "in your face!" Bartenders nice and food was plentiful. Staff very friendly.

The overall experience was very good. The food was nice - buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. The pool was big, clean and warm. The room was big and had a nice view and was filled with fresh flowers every day. Unfortunately, I had a room with sloping walls, and when it rained one night, the floor and stuff became wet....
