8/10 Very good

Chris and the staff are really wonderful. They spare no effort in tending to your needs and are very warm and kind. The hotel itself needs a little TLC though for its charm to really shine. A thorough cleaning and dusting especially the rooms would go a long way (lots of dust and cobwebs, dusty ornaments); torn cushions, worn towels and placemats need replacing; simple means to hang clothes and towels in the room along with hand/face towels would be welcome additions. There are a few other options for lodging on Ibo island now. However the menu and cuisine at Cinco Portas is without a doubt the best - simply divine!

10/10 Exceptional

Établissement plein de charme et de style dirigé par une personne (Chris) très bien connectée. Le transfert de ou vers Pemba peut être organisé par l'hôtel, de main de maître, et les excursions, randonnées ou bateau, sont exceptionnelles. L'hôtel offre un confort moyen qui s'explique par l'isolement de l'île et qui est donc tout à fait normal. Certains membres du personnel sont très professionnels (bar, réception, transfert, excursions ) d'autres sont plus apathiques (petit déjeuner pourrait faire beaucoup mieux).Par contre les repas du soir sont succulents. En résumé, une magnifique expérience.

Los días en Ibo han sido estupendos y en gran parte ha sido por la atención, servicio y excursiones propuestas por Cinco Portas. Además hemos disfrutado de su jardín y piscina y del restaurante con propuestas de menús que ni se han indiferentes
