I stayed in this hotel for four nights whilst travelling solo as a treat "from me to me". I paid the extra charges and opted for the Ocean front cottage and I can truly say it was magnificent. The deck in front of the room is right on the beach and at high tide you feel as though you are in the water. I did not see the other rooms, so I cannot comment on them.
The sunsets are just spectacular and if you are not in a cottage, it must be worth requesting a room with a sea view.
The food was good, the service excellent and the massage at the spa really good.
There are many restaurants within walking distance so you can easily go for the Bed and Breakfast option without worrying about where to go for dinner, you have a good choice within a short walk.
If you want to have the option of ''mixing with the locals'' Nungwi is the place to go. Friends on the East coast stayed at a resort and other than staff, never had the opportunity to mix.
My only small gripe is the cleanliness of the beach. Whilst I appreciate it is a working village, the beach really could do with a daily raking or similar clean-up, I was disappointed with the amount of refuse (plastic bottles, clothes, shoes, plastic) that washed up.
Oh yes, be sure to ask for a bottle opener for your bar fridge.....
