Hello, Is there a town near the hotel? it is safe to go around there? Thanks!!
The surrounding area is not wealthy and can seem intimidating, but the locals are quite friendly and were never much hassle. Obviously you should keep safe but there is no real town as such. You could still travel back into Stone Town if you needed to do supply runs.

"Definitley stay in the beach bungalows"
"If you want an ocean view ask for the rooms actually down on the beach, not really ocean view, but you do access direct to the pool area."
"Don't pay the extra for an "Ocean View", you'll be just as disappointed as us."
"get rooms mid to lower tier"
"Beach suite!"
