    Ayelet, us3 night trip with friends
    Very good 8,0
    We had a lovely stay! The staff was very helpful and kind, and the food at the resort was good. Each night had a different meal theme, and so there was lots of variety and it was all really tasty. The staff was very responsive to any needs we had, and very attentive to the facility. We really appreciated Juamanne the restaurant manager, as he really ensured that we always had a everything we needed at meals, and that level of attention is unusual. The only downside is that the beach- while lovely- isn't conducive to swimming most of the time because of the tides. But the view and the pool were great. The internet was on and off, which seems to be a problem generally.

    precious Christmas memory
    We had a wonderful stay for Christmas. It had a great Christmas eve dinner course with surprise events such as camels (in Zanzibar..!), Santa Clause, free gifts for kids, etc. On Christmas day, they even prepared a complimentary lunch buffet at the beach restaurant, which was beyond our expectation. I would surely recommend it to others, and will consider going back their for another family trip. The only negative side would be...its wifi is not for free. :(

    Ocean paradise 2017
    I stayed here after climbing Kilimanjaro to recover. Nice hotel with spacious rooms. I stayed on a half board basis and the food was great and there was a wide selection on offer at breakfast and dinner. I like to try new cuisines and liked the themed nights especially Swahili night. I thought the drinks were pretty expensive if you're not all inclusive. I wanted to go diving and partly chose this hotel as it had a well rated diving centre (One Ocean). I wanted to dive around Nmemba Atoll but after filling in the diving centre's medical form they would not let me dive which was really disappointing and kind of ruined my trip. I stayed here on my own so got a bit lonely with nothing much to do except lounge around and wait to be fed really. There was nothing much around outside the hotel so ended up going to Nungwi on the last day to meet up with a couple of friends. Another irritating factor was that every time I ventured out on to the beach past the hotel fence I was approached by the many locals trying to sell me anything such as guided tours, snorkelling, massages, bracelets etc. The tide goes right out on the beach here and I wanted to go out to just look around one day by myself but got some locals trying to guide me down to the coral reef. Just wanted to discover stuff for myself but they ended up walking with me when I didn't even ask them. Transfers were really expensive I thought, $60 for hotel to arrange transfer from airport.

    Ocean paradise it's a true paradise. It was amazing 8 days, everything went smoothly from first to last day. All staff was very friendly and so helpful, every one in all resort corners is ready to help you. Our superior garden room was excellent, spacious and very clean with beautiful views. The breakfast and dinner buffet was excellent. All in all was great stay, In Sha Allah we will be back. I recommend it too all.

    Good family orientated hotel, catering for larger groups, we stayed 4nights in a first floor garden view apartment, with large viewing balcony. Decor a little dated but functional. Gardens beatifully maintained and the beach area superb. Only pain were the numbers of hawkers on the beach. A walk at low tide to the reaf is a must. Catering and entertainment was of a reasonable quality. A hotel of this size should provide free wifi throughout.
