    HI , We have stayed at the Slipway several times and love it and the area. But I can't recall the time it takes to get to the airport. How long does it take to drive to the airport in rush hour traffic. We will be going to the Airport on a Friday during the late morning. Is the new airport terminal open yet? Can we make arrangements for a shuttle to the airport? Also, is there still a cell phone shop in the shopping center to buy new sim cards and minutes on our Tanzanian Cell phone? Thanks for any assistance or information.

    I booked a room with a sea view in the new block, but got a room in the back with a view of a car park and the back of Barclays Bank. There were no bottles of drinking water and no coffee or tea for the kettle in the room
