Paradise is right - expect to cry when you leave.
After a little tour of the island hitting busy Stonetown and overly touristy Nungwi, this was JUST what we needed - an actual taste of the tropical island paradise we had wanted from Zanzibar. I am so glad we spent the longest time here in comparison to other places. The rooms are perfect - we stayed in a studio - i imagine the villas to be even better, but we had everything we needed and more. The food was the best we had on the island. Truly delicious! The grounds are magical - so lush and green and the pool is beautiful, with comfy loungers and a great hammock. As other reviews state, there is not a typical 'beach' for sunbathing/swimming, however, the resort offers free transport to another beach 5mins away. We loved the mangrove style beach with its rockpools and we enjoyed several walks along to the other resorts on rocky outcrop - lots of wildlife to be seen - so peaceful and brought out the kids in us we explored. I could not recommend this place enough!

Beautiful hotel, amazing pool. However, the only complaint I have would be the quality VS price ratio of the foot. Very expensive - not so qualitative.

Beautiful hotel, fantastic stay.
Really enjoyed this as a last few days on a hectic trip around Kenya and Tanzania camping and safari trip. This was an amazing relaxing experience in very nice accommodation and setting. Food was amazing and rooms are comfortable and very well cleaned and kept. Staff were very helpful and friendly at all times. Only downside it this is quite remote and takes quite a while to travel to other parts of the island due to low speed limits and poor roads. If you just want a lovely relaxing time in beautiful surroundings this is a great choice!

Nice quiet small hotel
Very small hotel - only room for 38 guests. Pool area is large and spacious - beach area not usable as a beach as tide goes out and you can't sit there, but it's still beautiful as a view. Service was very nice - we had a few problems with our room. All inclusive is expensive for what you get. I would recommend bed and breakfast then paying just for what you eat.

6/10 Good

Inget paradis
Hotelrummet överensstämde inte med beskrivningen. AC fungerade inte till fullo och förbättrades inte. Fin hotelomgivning men tråkigt att man inte kunde bada på stranden. Bra att det erbjöds annan strandvistelse men trist att behöva åka bil dit. Maten trist, för lite tanzanisk mat, frukosten bäst. Ledningen attackerande attityd. Handdukar borde ha bytts ut. Övrig personal jobbade hårt och var hjälpsamma. Jularrangemanget var ett gott försök, men maten inte värd sitt pris och kom i fel ordning.
