    Great area with very nice staff and owners there. The garden is beautiful, the beach area made with heart, everything you need for some relaxing days on the west side, you can also swim in the ocean here. Pool and staff at beach bar fulfill all wishes!

    A double bed with a single mattress instead of two single beds would have been more comfortable, but the mattress topper in the middle helped a lot ☺️

    We liked the friendly staff and helpful owners, the lovely place with its paradisiacal and individual style.

    The beach is nice, especially the sunset. But there are much nicer beaches in zanzibar.

    The setting is very nice, on an inlet of of a mangrove swamp. It has a nice pool area and two meeting points which are very nice. If you want cheap and cheerful, then very good for you, but the images online make it look a little better than it is.

    1. The road to the hotel is awful - not the hotels fault but it affects the ride in and out. 2. The beds are awful. 3. The staff are a little in your face, with many people transiting through whilst you are trying to relax. 4. I don’t understand what the eco part of the hotel is? Just saying bring a water-bottle doesn’t make you Eco. 5. Our stay was over priced. We paid £140 for 4 pax in what turned out to be effectively a hostel.

    The staff are very helpful and nice, I still remember Sherif , Khalifa and others there. Very quite with high privacy. It’s not faraway from the ferry station.

    Nothing, but I can say it’s not suitable for Solo Traveler like in my case because there is no activities there but you can only relax.
