Blue Oyster is lovely, friendly, and very well-managed by a terrifically energetic and communicative staff. The rooms are clean and sunny, the restaurant run by a great staff, especially the incomparable Valentino. Everyone is helpful and welcoming and they remember your name and your particularities. You can swim (even at low tide) in sparkingly clean turquoise waters, go snorkeling on the coral reefs from a dhow with Captain Zappy, lounge and read and listen to the waves. Don't mistake the seaweed in the pictures - the water is totally clean and swimmable. I would come back here any time. The restaurant serves creative, good food, including many choices for vegetarians and vegans. Bathrooms might use a small upgrade, but otherwise everything was clean and comfortable. Mosquito nets and window-screens are in good shape - no mossies in the room. Blue Oyster is one of a handful of Tanzania hotels to win a sustainable tourism award - they are very integrated with the local community as suppliers and staff, serve fresh organic food. I will never forget the wonderful two days I spent here with my partner and friends.
