My wife and I stayed here for a couple of days, and it was honestly too short. Lovely staff, lovely facilities, and a gorgeous beach. It's a few bumpy minutes from the main road, but that's the price you get for a quiet, and gorgeous beach front facility.
I honestly don't have a single complaint, except for maybe no WiFi in the rooms. But for the price, and for what you get, it's a negligible issue.
The rooms and air-conditioned, clean, and big. The bathrooms and quite nice, and there is mosquito netting (not that it was needed). There is tons of privacy.
I'd like to also mention that the massage therapist at the spa may be one of the best experiences I've had. I've had tons of massages, and she was definitely one of the best. And by far the best I had when I was visiting Africa. Highly recommend it.
Another thing, the owner (or GM?), Shaun(spelling?)--what an absolute legend. He really helped set us up with a few tours and things to do before we left Zanzibar. He also told us to go to Mari Mari in Zanzibar for dinner (sunset) and this was probably our favourite meal the entire time there. Gorgeous sunset on the very top of a historic building.
Pretty good food in the restaurant (the breakfasts were outstanding), and the in-house tour operation was good too. The snorkeling adventure at the Atoll was not as good as we hoped, but this had nothing to do with the hotel itself. Lots of games to play (ping-pong, pool table, darts, board games). There is a computer downstairs with internet access that is slow, but still very usable.
Best place we stayed at throughout our whole trip in Africa (1 month). Cheers to Ras Nungwi.
Anyhow 5-stars all the way.
