    We stayed in the ocean facing room. The room was comfortable and clean. The bar is also great with views of the ocean and a fair choice of drinks available. The breakfast was also great. Great location as well, walking distance from the ferry terminal.

    One of the few places in stone town which can host a large gathering of people on rooftop with sun set views. Large and open rooftop restaurant, excellent views and good food. Reasonably priced too. Highly recommended.

    This place has a lot of hype around it because the sunset deck provides a good view. Wouldn't recommend trying to eat here or expect more than a good view. Broken furniture. Free wifi. Prices above average.
