Average hotel, not so good value for the price comparing it to others i've been. But comparing to others in Nungwi it's nice. Location is the best thing hotel can offer. Also the pool is very nice and big. Rooms have air conditioning, but bed is bad, they should change mattresses, pillow is nice and the staff is nice to....

The room was dated but clean, air conditioning worked well, beautiful view of the beach from balcony, fell asleep to the waves. There were not enough sun loungers for the number of people staying. The staff were incredibly lethargic and quite frankly rude. Breakfast was a free for all and the mess wasn't pleasant, I think there were as many...

This was a bad experience for our family. We were disappointed with our room and the Hotel. The surroundings are nice and a there is a lot of restaurants close to the hotel. The water in the pool was dirty and in the morning you can't even see the bottom. During breakfast the restaurant was crowded and not enough staff....

This hotel as rooms with view on the beach, the swimming pool and at the garden. The rooms with view on the swimming pool are the biggest and most modern. The other rooms are old and old fashion. There is airco and a fan in every room witch is very important (high t°) Breakfast is less, not so clean and...

Location is probably the best in Nungwi. and the main area is very tidy The room was OK with aircon, fan and mosquito net on the very hard bed.almost no wardrobe or cupboard space, but that might just be the norm in the area. Bathroom was shabby but the hot and cold water worked fine Restaurant was very tidy and...

Before I sound like an over privileged, fussy and overly critical person, I would like to say that we had an incredible holiday in Zanzibar. The memories that I have of this holiday will always make me happy. I remember when I read some of the more negative reviews, I just assumed that it was just written by a fussy...

The rooms are good, a bit dated - but who cares in a great location like Nungwi. The air conditioning ans showers work well and the rooms are clean. As for the restaurants - we gave up on the fresh seafood place as no one seemed to be able to confirm any prices. As for the main dining room -...

Ok place in terms of rooms, the check in took 45 mins though and could easily have been sorted earlier. The location is great too. The real highlight of the place is Frank the bar tender! Despite having up to 3 other people at the bar doing nothing to help, Frank managed the whole happy hour and beyond, doing all...

Rumours: new owners since some time. Very nice location at the beach and our sea view room was great, but service is not good. Most of the staff are not friendly, they need to focus on the guests, not for example on crazy paperwork for just ordering a drink. The management must create a happy working climate for the staff,...
