Excellent standard of the intimate complex and service: comfortable room, ambient restaurant and pier-like Lily's bar, the fantastic chef and his delicious meals, tender care of animal residents and continuous but descreet presence of the remarkable and generous owners with individual approach to their guests - thank You for sweetening our stay in Zanzibar :o) (M&M from Poland)
“Great place to get away and yet see it all.”
From the time I arrived to the time I left I felt like I was being looked after by professional and caring people. The staff were wonderful to talk to and very helpful with ideas and suggestions for trips and sightseeing. The food was always prepared and presented in top fashion with a great menu that was different from day to day.
“a balanced review of likes and dislikes”
Cleanliness - The resort is small and very clean. Service - The service was top notch. The staff for the most part was very nice however you could see they were struggling with English. Location - The resort is about an hour from Stone Town (main attraction city) and to leave the resort cost us $140 USD for any excursion. Meals - The meals we had were way above my expectations. I would say 4 of 5 stars most of the time, perhaps I should say 5 stars given that the food is all local and not imported. The presentation of the meals was artful and visually pleasant. Beach - The beach is totally unusable period. The difference between high and low tides is so vast that it rushes in and rushes out; in the evening it is nice because it is high tide and you have a beautiful view, but you are also not swimming. When the tide is returning in late afternoon it is bringing with it tons of sea grass and it is sandy because it is rushing in, you would not want to swim in it. In the morning it is low tide and you would have to walk more than a hundred yards through sinking mudd-like sand and crabs to get to the water while stepping on coral and cutting your feet as my wife did when we tried. Rooms - Our room was beautiful with a beautiful view on the balcony. One complaint - air conditioner worked but was inadequate for the size of the room and for the temperature in Zanzibar. Internet access - I was told it is throughout the complex but I could not get a signal anywhere.
