The location is great, just near Stone Town (5 km) and the rooms are beautiful, clean and well maintained with huge beds and mosquito nets, air conditioners and nice bathrooms. The creek runs up the back of the 12 rooms and there are giant verandas. The end rooms are surrounded on three sides by water at high tide.
The best aspect for me was the 21 metre pool right on the beach front, clear and nice for exercising in the morning and evening. The kids loved the rooms - I was glad there was no tv - and the price in April was fine. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times, including cooking the fishes my son and daughter caught earlier that day.
Steps to improve could be more restaurant staff, Internet and/or wifi and maybe some entertainment (dart board, etc.)
