Very disappointing experience. Have been to Zanzibar twice before but CHWAKA area was no good. Disappointing beach because of the tide the Walter was gone for 7-8 hours during daytime so absolutely no chance of swimming nor snorkelling. Furthermore the sand was full of debris and broken tiles so watch out!!! Food was no good especiallly the breakfast was bad. Waiters very nice but sooooo inexperienced and untrained - didnt have a clue. Except Noah in the bar - he was a true gem :-) Very poor selection of food and beverages - every night the waiter started out telling us what wasnt available and that was quite a lot. Pool was disgusting and wasnt fixed and cleaned for the first 3-4 days of our stay. Poolbar NOT existing so dont judge from the photos. Nice boattrip to nearby Paradise Beach but the lunch was inedible. We had to wait 3 days to have the doorlock changed. Manager Ajay was nice and serviceminded but needs help to run the resort...
