I chose this hotel based on the reviews of previous guest and for it's pricing, along with the fact that they provided a shuttle service. I went there with no specific expectations, but felt some fear on the transit (we took the ferry - avoid it if at all possible!!!!) saving the money was not worth it - fly if...

If you're looking for peace and quiet without the inflated budget then I'd highly recommend this little gem. It's run by an Italian couple and it has lots of their influences whilst keeping with the local traditions. The rooms are conveniently located a few steps from the white sandy beach and the waves are audible from your huts which will...

I needed a place for my annual retreat and this was it, i loved pretty much everything but the breakfast which i described as horrible.The air conditioning was perfect(Zanzibar is very hot!) and there was hot water from the shower. The grounds were kept clean and it was perfect for my purpose and the price was right!

Stayed here for a few days with my friends. The hotel is nice and located in a nice place by the beach. A few hours after we checked in, it started leaking loads of water from the bathroom sink. This they spent almost three hours to fix, under this they said often that it takes only 5 minutes, they are...

What a amazing place. This resort is tiny but great. During our stay it was far away of being overcrowded. That's what we liked. It's a relaxing atmosphere, the staff is super attentive serving all time. The rooms a small hats . Pretty clean inside on a daily base. Good equipped, the bath could be better . Hot water only...

“None of the rooms face the water; those a little closer and a bit larger command about a 15% premium, but all are nice.”

“We stayed in the "Beachfront / Sea view" room - its not our definition of such as room so make sure you have the right expectations before arriving - then the rest of your holiday and stay will be perfect”

“The "Deluxe Room with Sea view" are gorgeous, very spacious and come with aircon and a fan, would definitely recommend splashing out a little bit extra if you can, although I didn't see what the "Standard Rooms" are like.”
