Actually we stayed in Samaki Lodge which is close to Palumbo Reef Resort and we used the restaurant in Palumbo Reef and the swimming pool and the bar, too. We spent there ten nights in January 2013. Hotel is surrounded by nice garden and has a gorgeous white-sand beach, nice pool area, very helpful staff and security provided by Masai warriors. A fish village and locals fish from their dhows just offshore.
Food was tasty - chicken, beef, rice, chips, pasta, fruits, cakes. Seafood was always fresh, having been caught the same day (several times while having breakfast we saw fishermen bringing a big tuna or swordfish).
We have been to two trips with a local guide called Jerry whom you can meet on the hotel beach at the place where a bed service is provided. A man usually wearing a cap with peak and a bag on his shoulder speaks English and Italian and a bit Czech, too. We were pleased with his taking us to Stone Town, Prison Island and Spice tour thanks to his friendly approach and a good price. We recommend his service warmly.
