The Hotel is a wonderful place for a relaxed vacation !! It is located beautifully, the rooms are big with a great seaview. The stuff is very friendly and helpful, the food is great and the ocean is dramatic with clear turquoise water colour and the ebb and tide. Very much recommend this hotel !!!

Stunning beaches that are romantic and peaceful. Beautiful rooms that are very comfortable--bordering on luxurious. Amazing amenities. You can book any activity you like on site. Small gift shop but the prices are comparable to Stone Town. Excellent service for drinks and food from pool or beach and amazing dinner service. The chef even prepared the dorado my husband caught...

a nice stay overall with great beaches nearby. Nungwi has some of the most beautiful beaches on the island and a trip wouldn't be complete without a stop there. Also there are plenty of options for restaurants around the hotel

Yes, this place has a fantastic location - bang on the most beautifully blue beach. But you have to drive through the middle of nowhere, and some fairly dangerous roads to get there. The food here was also really nice - we only had dinner one night, but it was good! The games area is good - we spent most...

You will only hear the sea, the birds and the breeze. Friendly staff and all amenities needed for a memorable stay. The food was very good, better than average hotel food. The only problem is the distance to Stone Town/other atractions on the island. The transfer is costly...100€.

A beautiful hotel in an amazing location. Our family of four had a wonderful time here. From the moment we arrived the staff was friendly and accommodating. We were fortunate to receive a free upgrade from garden to an ocean view room. It is definitely a place to relax, enjoy the hotel and great food, and of course the beautiful...

In our experience this hotel is almost exclusively visited by Honeymooners. The place is very nice, but extremely quiet. While most hotels in the Nungwi area are bustling, this place was quiet and a bit further away from town. The coastal area in front of it is visually magnificent, but does require good footwear to protect yourself from the very...
