    Perfect location by the beach, and easy access to old Stone Town. Nice quiet location, wonderful rooms with balcony overlooking the pool and ocean.

    Room was excellent, well arranged, neat and tidy. Breakfast was excellent. Good variety. The preparation was fresh, quick and taste oriented. Waiters were very friendly, even the reception staff were willingly helpful and polite. Pool was quite clean and very tempting to dive. It was well lit even during the night. The apartment area felt isolated, but was safe. The apartment building across the main hotel area, being slightly cheaper, is maintained well too.

    We stayed for one night, despite being very good. I checked in late and checked out early. I needed a quick room cleaning in between, which I did not get. Pillows were slightly smelly and old. May need some changing. Lighting may need to be improved. It was quite dimly lit. The pool area may need an area away from public viewing and needs to remain open 24 hours. The apartment area requires an elevator. The 2nd floor was quite difficult for us to keep moving up and down constantly. (And bear in mind I went there with my mum and my toddler).

    Great location, nice pool, decent breakfast

    Didn’t like being in one of the ‘extra’ buildings rather than the main hotel. Constantly had to walk through a sketchy alley - getting offered marijuana, being bugged to buy stuff or give them cigarettes. The room in the extra building was large and comfortable but being a single woman travelling alone I didn’t enjoy the alley at all.

    Building architecture, Indian ocean view by the balcony, historic vibe, breakfast selection (the omelette and pancakes are particularly great, thanks to the Chef!)

    Noisy ceiling fan
