When we entered the room, our first reaction was "waow !"
Nicely furnished with a beautiful wooden floor, our room was great and the large terrace overlooking the Indian Ocean is fantastic. It was indeed very confortable however, when you enter the bathroom, the feeling of contentment stops right there ! It's small, looks old and needs to be redone ASAP.
The restaurant was good and the staff very nice. The tables and seats are not appropriate to the standard of the place while the bar's got beautiful wooden ones.
There is a slight lack of professionnalism upon check-in. When we reserved, we enquired about a possible pick-up at the boat arrival from Zanzibar and never got any answer, not even to say "we don't do it but here is our advice..."
Also, we were assigned room 5109 which is not signalized. It's part of the 2 bedrooms suite #5105 but there is no way of finding it by yourself without the proper indication. How come they can send guests alone to find a "non existing" room number is beyond our imagination !
Anyway, it was a nice stay in a nice place and the slights "gaps" are totaly fixable.
