    A bit of African paradise

    Beautiful 5 star resort. Great food, clean rooms, excellent service. Only concern is the very hard mattress. We stayed in the villa - an upgrade. The standard rooms were also very nice.

    Pleasant hotel!

    Pros -beautiful location -beautiful beach, with powder white sand -beautiful pool -staff are friendly -clean, spacious rooms -well maintained hotel Cons -some service related issues e.g requested items such as a laundry bag / clothing iron - items either never arrived at the unit at all, or came after a unreasonably long period -food was average -was forced to pay $70 for a Xmas dinner. This was in the booking fine print. Guests should have the option to opt out, as not all guests would opt to attend the dinner. Tips - be sure to make a reservation at the African resturant -unlike other hotels, when booking half board, the hotel only offers water as a free drink during supper. Juices and soft drinks are charged for On the whole, pleasent experience.

    Good All Inclusive Resort

    The resort was excellent, staff were very friendly, hard working and always greeted guests with a smile. All facilities were excellent and well maintained and clean. We did feel food options could have been better, especially as Zanzibar is known for their spicies. Local drinks could have been better and there was no option to upgrade drinks package to premium drinks. Overall, satisfied and would recommend this resort.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Don’t stay here!

    Do not stay at this hotel. It is definately not a five star resort! Let me start with the cons 1. Safe not working. Brought to the attention of guest relations manager and fixed 2. Telephone line not working at all. Bear in mind, there is a long walk between ocean view suite and reception to bring up issues. There is a WhatsApp line to guest relation manager but when u have a query in the middle of the night you are facing a long walk. 3. The pool side first aid kit consists of one unsterile glove, unsterile cotton wool and calamine lotion!!!! No antiseptic or proper first aid kit! My daughter had a cut at the pool, and my husband had to run to our rooms to get first aid. Luckily, I am a doctor, and cane prepared. 4. Electricity cuts mean you waking up at least 4times a night to switch the aircon on. Temperature rises quickly. 5. Rooms are very dated 6. All inclusive is not all inclusive. Between breakfast and lunch, even tho we were willing to pay for food for my 3year old to snack on between meal times, we faced uphill and I had to escalate to the assistant GM. Ridiculous! Five star resort my foot! Pros: 1. Staff very friendly. 2. Water pulls back with tide exposing the reef which is anazing to explore. We saw clown fish, star fish, sea cucumber, spongy ink fish. It was incredible. 3. Meal times have a sufficient spread of food 4. Theme nights were really special I would definately not stay here again. They should have their star rating reviewed urgently

  • 8.0.Very good

    The grounds were well maintained. It is a beautiful beachfront property with lots of amenities. The staff is the best part of the resort!!! They were friendly and accommodating. The spa services were amazing!! The only issues I had with the property was that all the restaurants are open-air therefore flies, mosquitos, and other flying insects were harassing us while we ate. I did not enjoy this. We had to wear bug spray every time we went out the room. They need to invest in a good exterminator and the fans that sit at doors of restaurants that keep the flies out. The power kept going out; however, I think this is an island problem and not neccessarily the hotels issue. Our telephone didn’t work in the room.
