After spending 2 nights in Stonetown, we spent 2 nights here and were very glad we did.
Being at the beach was relaxing and quiet, a perfect complement to bustling Stonetown. Maruhubi is a place to really relax and we did. We had a large room with a wrap-around sea view (#1). The room was very comfortable with a casual style. It has a very nice swimming pool, which is open 24 hours and illuminated at night. We went swimming in the ocean at sunset, a very short walk from our room. A long walk on the beach at low tide was also a highlight. Juma, the manager, and his team were great, very helpful and accommodating. They lent a modem so we would have internet access in our room. There is free wifi closer to the office.They will arrange discounted taxi transportation to Stonetown, which is about a 10 minute drive. We had dinner both nights at Mtoni Marine Hotel next door, where you can have a romantic dinner on the beach. We really enjoyed our stay.
