Great breakfast and food overall, nice setting, friendly and helpful staff - can recommend!
Relaxed place, the bungalows are scattered in a garden almost a jungle, with lots of old and high trees providing shade, really nice. The staff was super nice and helpful. Haji recommended that I do a trip to the Masingini forest instead of a trip to prison Island, really enjoyed that. When I departed Sharif came with me and navigated me out of the stone town area, avoiding the traffic jams and bad roads and showing me the way to Jambiani. Dinner was really delicious. There is a nice beach in front of the hotel.
WiFi is really bad here, sporadic and slow. Breakfast was interesting, with spiced coffee, naam, and other interesting options, I guess Indian influences, but it wasn't so much mine. The room furniture and facilities were shabby, but still ok (e.g. door was hard to open). The hotel tries to save water, which is a good thing, but the trickle from the shower annoyed me, a bit more water would have been nice. There was no safe in my room. The bed was too short for me. Unfortunately not so many sun chairs with shade, they could add one or two parasols. I recommend a 4WD if you are driving yourself to the hotel. Expect more than usual mosquitos here.
