This hotel, the staff, atmosphere and rooms are everything you could want in a laid back beautiful hotel. The staff taught us some Swahili words, our bartender Hussane was very friendly, spoke great English and always knew what we wanted to order :) if you like sweeter mojo it's, go see Hussane!! Te drinks and food are reasonable priced, delicious and come out at a reasonable pace, compared to a few places we went around this area. The front reception staff and very professional and friendly always asking how we are doing and what were we getting up to that day. But they were so approchable that you never felt uncomfortable asking them anything. The restaurant staff, we mainly had Justin, are very attentive and lovely. The manager, Mohammed, just the loveliest man you'll meet. Always asking how is everything, if there was a problem he would fix it straight away. My parents needed help changing their ferry ticket and he jumped onto the phone straight away to help them out. The room 112 was very spacious, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was generous. It has 2 sinks and a long shower which comes with complimentary toiletries. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will be raving about it and all the staff whenever someone mentions Africa! Thank you Hussane, Justin, Mohammed and everyone at Al Johari for the best accommodation and atmosphere Mr Ben and I have ever had! �����
