We stayed here, twice- each time we were welcomed with enthusiasm and panache. Salim is an amazing man- his life stories are fascinating, he is hilarious and a fun person and he copes with incessantly demanding guests. Every guest is honoured and treated well. Continental breakfasts were humunguous and fantastical. I have never eaten donuts for breakfast- but I found they go well with potato cakes- three kinds and mango, english mango, pawpaw and eggs, toast, divine coffee and fruit juices.
Salim organised Muhammed to drive us to the bungalows up to the north of the island and he advised us on catching dulla dullas to and from the monkey forest. I felt relaxed and comfortable. He organised our attendance on the spice tour. He recommended places to eat and where to go to enjoy the sunset with cocktails and local music.He is prepared to go the extra "500 miles" to assist his guests.
Our bedrooms were delicious, especially the one on the top storey. Even if you don't stay in it, it's worth it just for a look! I would return to Stonetown to stay there.
