The previous review warned that this place was changing management, it seems it has. It was dreadful. We placed our bags in our room and immediately realised we did not want to stay. Damp smelling bedroom, electricity not working, curtains falling off, stains in toilet, bathrom which smelt like boys nightclub toilets, provided bath towels were damp. We walked down to the 'restaurant' to be told there was no menu because they weren't busy (he did offer a salad or for us to wait until the local fisherman brought in his catch). We walked along the beach to find another resort. We went back to Sazani to collect our bags. They wanted us to pay for a full night but we managed to get them down to £25 , thank goodness we did not pay up front! We noticed that there were only two other guests staying according to the guest book and that they had had no guests in at all last week - the height of summer...
What a pity because the place has a superb spot on the beach in a quieter part of Nungwi. It is now run down and uncared for. It could be fantastic but it isn't...
