The staff and the nature were awesome! Really nice atmosphere, helpful people around! The room was also clear, and the view from the balcony was beautiful to the ocean. The food was also OK and fresh!

Beautiful place with very friendly and helpful staff! The food was delicious! Pool and sea side both offer a bit of shadow which was perfect to relax under the bright sun of Zanzibar! We enjoyed every minute of our stay!

Loved the location, the beach was one off the best. Its very close to the rock restuarant. You feel the tides and low... the service was very kind and helpfull. The rooms are big but average, and the beds need improvments...

Beautiful sandy beach, impressive tides which allows long walks in the see with water up to your knee. A bit far from the center for those who want action, just perfect if you want... More

A group of us (18) stayed recently for a wedding. Lovely location and people. Very laid back feel. Quiet and unpretentious locally owned hotel. Simple room and furnishings. Good service and decent food. Amazing beach and great pool. Basic yoga and massage also available.
