My friend and I stayed here for 6 nights Oct/Nov. It gets very busy there at the weekends but on the plus side, it was really tranquil and peaceful during the week days. In addition, we found the staff to be really friendly and attentive to our needs.
The pool area is really nice with the option of sitting in the shade or not. A beach towel is provided at reception.
The rooms are good with a very decent-sized balcony with terrific views of the Indian Ocean. There is daily cleaning of the rooms with bottles of water provided also.
We ate in the resort most evenings and there is a good choice of food on the menu - vegetarians are also well cathered for as staff made every effort that we were aware of the vegetarian options, particularly for breakfast. There are a number of bars in the resort including the Whisky Shack where the ideal option is to order your beer/cocktail etc. and take it to the seating that is contained within the resort but is actually on the beach - this is just heavenly at sunset! If you follow football, they also had a special outdoor area showing the big games.
Just beware that if you are going to the airport or to Zanzibar, make sure you give yourself 4 hours to get to the airport and 3 hours to get to the ferry to Zanzibar. This is because traffic is chaotic at rush-hour.
Overall, a really relaxing fun-filled stay with very kind staff!
