We arrived at the Chavda on August 1, 2012. We spent one night in a suite, which was not worth the extra money. It had a separate room with a flat screen TV and a loveseat and chair, but we don't look for space or television. The next day we moved to a room across the hall and it was perfect. We don't spend much time in our room and this room had a beautiful porch/balcony out a back door. It was about 30 feet long and 12 feet wide with 2 chairs and a coffee table. We would come back from our day and go out there and relax before we left for the evening. Breakfast was good, plenty of fresh fruit and eggs to order. It was on the roof with some lovely views. The staff was very accommodating and we had great experiences with the walking tour they set up for us and the Spice Plantation and trip to Prison Island. They even got us a great deal on transportation to the airport when we were leaving. The staff seemed to anticipate our needs and were very attentive. We thought the location was ideal, we could walk anywhere in Stone Town from here. Our room was always clean, our bathroom was huge and we had no problem at all with bugs of any sort. We never had to use our mosquito netting. Their dinner menu was okay, but we preferred to explore other places.
