          Air-con turned off every 10min, shower did not run at all, and beach is a bit of a thoroughfare. On the other hand the food is good (but expensive) and WiFi is pretty reliable. We had lower rates as it was the off-season, but if...More

          Hi Jen, thank you for your review. It is frustrating for us, and our team of staff, that you did not explain earlier in your stay that you were having a problem with your air con and shower. The air con works perfectly fine, but...More

          We stayed here over Christmas, 2014. Overall, the hotel is a small, charming place with attentive and very friendly staff. If you're expecting a generic, sterillized mega-resort and pristine beach, this is not it, but if you want a good hotel that feels like Zanzibar,...More
