This is a large complex at the village end of the excellent Nungwi beach. The rooms are adequate without being special and all rooms have a balcony area. There is a good sized swimming pool at the front and a spacious bar/restaurant area. Breakfast was all over the place on our first day, better on the second but nothing special....

Stayed 4 nights in a standard room garden view. Basic rooms but price and location does this to a really good deal. If you want luxury there are other options, but you will have to pay for it. Water (hot/cold) was limited It's right on the most beautiful beach you can imagine, and facing west so sunset is a possibility....

We were a group of 5 friends and stayed here for one week. We had Garden view rooms which we liked very much. The pool area is quite nice as well. The beach in front of the hotel was a very nice one, guarded whenever we went down there. The restaurant is alright for breakfast (which we had included in...

This is a nice place to stay, however slightly over priced when compared to other places with better service. The rooms and pool are quite nice and the beach out the front is beautiful, although riddled with people trying to sell stuff. It's a very friendly and touristic place, so it is to be expected. The restaurant isn't great and...

The rooms are simple, but clean. The beach is breathtakingly gorgeous! The meal prices are fair, and the food is plain but palatable. Good happy hour. What earns this place 2 stars is the sheer indifference of the staff. From the check-in desk, to the waitstaff, to the cleaners, getting service is like pulling teeth. If the manager is around...

Great location, nice food. The minus is that wifi it's only working around the swimming pool (connection is poor) , rooms are very basic, I had a problem with my shower & door locker- was waiting ages to fix it, reception is closed during the night. I will still recommend to others.

I was so excited to go to Zanzibar, but a bit skeptical about the accommodation after some reviews i read on tripadvisor. Complaints about service, basic rooms and poor buffet... but i was so pleasantly surprised once there. I realized the kind of tourists that go there... People wanting to sit on wifi all day playing on social media instead...

During our stay in Zanzibar, we stayed at 2 different resorts, this one being our second. I found it to be very clean, relaxing with top quality service. The food was the best I had in Zanzibar, the pool was perfect and the whole atmosphere was lovely! The resort was right on the water front, so the scenery was stunning...

Dear Guest, the entire staff is sending their humble greetings to you and your family back at home. It was so amazing the way you easily mingled with most staff and became so friendly to them.

Great place to relax and enjoy the beach or the excellent pool. Rooms are large and have a very comfortable bed. It's clean and has airco. It's a beautiful place to walk around and it's got several restaurants. However: don't have your dinner in the restaurant where they serve the (very okay) breakfast! Service and quality of food in that...

Hello Petra, thank you very much for staying with us. The big crowd during breakfast was due to the heavy booking we had, a blessing yes but now we have learnt that we need to spread the breakfast stations into at least two. We have now brought in a new executive chef in the Marina Kitchen and am sure in...
