This was a WONDERFUL boutique hotel. The hotel itself was gorgeous, and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. Beyond the gorgeous aesthetics, the staff was ABOVE and BEYOND! I certainly recommend this hotel. It is a great price point for a true 5 star experience. I will certainly be coming back, and I encourage others to stay there!

10/10 Exceptional

Loved everything about the property. It's location right at the beach, the pool was clean and gorgeous. The staff was very friendly and very well educated on hospitality. All staff I met had a degree in hospitality and were very professional. The services are excellent and would like to commend Laizer, Mwajuma, Suzan, Mohamed(Mudi), hilda, and the supervisor Charles Joseph who is the ultimate professional. This is our to go place together with my wife and will be back here when in Zanzibar.

8/10 Very good

This is a 3 star hotel with old, stained towels and the rug in the room really needed to be replaced. The price was exorbitant, the food lacked variety, the pool lacked adequate lounges and you could not swim in the ocean there.

8/10 Very good

The staff at the hotel are very accommodating aLways willing to go the extra mile to ensure great service. Hotel s quiet and peaceful away from the hustle of the main village but enough If you want to go there.Pool is adequate and overlooks the ocean for great views. The hotel sits on the beach , but tye beach and ocean itself is not the best beach in Nungwi for swimming. The Nungwi main beach is a quick taxi drive away however and for me was not an issue.Food at the mantis was good and i found it reasonably priced, and the hotel has some themed nights for dinner with live entertainment. The only issue with food was with breakfast with the chefs not quite getting easy over eggs correct but the breakfast was enjoyable.
