I attended 2x full days of meetings with full buffet style lunches at this Hotel. Very Nice layout of Hotel, grounds and Hotel is set in rolling hills with high raised walkways well above the grounds in very lush tropical setting. Many of the Buildings and walkways and the wonderful restaurant were adorned with straw roofs, facilities were very well setup and the meals were great in the beautiful beachfront setup for the main restaurant venue. It was a large open facility, with straw roof sitting out on wooden stilts protruding well into the nice white sandy beaches so great setting !! This was also a very quiet Hotel setting, secluded with nice well presented infrastructure and great beachfront water seaside views and great food. I would definitely recommend this property.

Room Tip: I was only here for meetings and lunches so I did not stay in the rooms, but from the venue setup, I...

my boyfriend and I found it ok... if u are looking for a place thats nice and quite not too far from stone town this is the place for you.. the staff was very friendly and the rooms were very clean... the bathroom could use a remodeling....

The food was good although we ate there once . On our last nyt of stay .. sea food soup was great..

Its a few minutes from town and air port.. we payed abt 7000tsh or 5000tsh depending in the taxi driver...
Overall we cant complain.. we surely would go back

Ps.. they do not hav a pool..
And the reason for the 3 stars and not 5 is the annoying cats at the restaurant and the broken shower head..

This hotel has a nice view but the beach isn't that nice. Lots of mosquitoes and flies when we were there and it is really not convenient to anything without taking taxis everywhere. Service was indifferent as was the food and the property has a sterile, holiday inn, appearance. Clean but uninspired. Your basic blah experience. We left after one night.

We stayed one night at this hotel on Precision Air's account after our original flight was cancelled. The views from the rooms and the restaurant are spectacular, but the property itself is adequate but not much more. Rooms are decent but mosquitoes abound in great numbers, so make sure you spray and use the nets. No batteries in the TV remote control, so I had to provide my own to turn it on and change channels. Breakfast was decent and staff were friendly. Wifi signal faded in and out but speed was decent when you caught the signal.

Room Tip: If you have issues climbing up and down stairs, make sure you stress this at checkin since many room...

This property is spread over the beach and is on a slope. My room did not have a view of the ocean, but the public places including restaurants and conference venue have breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean. One could laze for hours gazing out at the multi-hued sea, the dhows, sailing boats and the shipping. The rooms are of adequate size, clean, have AC and the beds are comfortable with mosquito nets. However, there is no exercise centre and no pool. The staff are very helpful and smiling, particularly at the reception someone called Manju was very good. The problems were with electricity supply, wavering generator backup and indifferent Wifi Internet speed. I could not sleep one night due to poor electricity. The food is okay, not special and the breakfast on offer is not especially exciting though the provide an array of good tropical fruit. Lastly, the place is clean and well maintained but not spanking so someone who's looking for a spanking newish place, and spit and polish, this place is not for them.

Beautiful environment. All rooms have sea views and the rooms are big, nice and clean. Friendly staff and lovely breakfast. Unfortunately the beach bottom is not so nice (a bit muddy). You need to take taxi to get tdowntown (Stone town) However, its is both inexpensive, safe and easy so don´t hesitate to do so. I highly recommend this hotel.

Close to the airport. The resort seems pretty big. I had a lovely room facing the ocean.
There is a TV in the room, but the reception is pretty bad. Beds are quite comfortable, but
when I woke up the next morning, my legs were covered in what I am assuming are bed bug
bites, as I had used the mosquito nets provided. There is a small hot water tank in the
bathroom, allowing you to take a short, but hot, shower.

Supposedly there is free wifi, but I could not get any signal in my room. I called the front desk and asked and was told to go to the reception where the signal is better. There was also no signal in the reception area.

Food is mediocre, although service is a bit slow. I was one of two people ordering dinner in the restaurant, and it took about 45 minutes for me to get my dinner.

Service is mediocre. I had booked the hotel through the agent arranging my trip for me.
They said they had not received the payment and wanted me to pay again, to which I refused. Took them an hour to straighten out everything. My agent said they had received payment, but just don't understand English very well.
