This is a top class hotel once you arrive after a 75 minute journey from the airport. Immigration at Zanzibar Airport needs dramatically improving as does the final 4 km of road up to the hotel. Once you get there everything is first class with very comfortable rooms and each one having its own pool.and sun deck. The General Manager is one of the very best and the hotel staff reflect a warm, friendly but efficient culture with nothing being too much trouble. The food is good but not gourmet with a very wide range of choices. The Head Chef is very committed to delivering good food. A 21 hour trip from the UK to the hotel but well worth the effort and we would highly recommend the hotel to any potential visitors.
