Our stay was very comfortable. The food was good but the service was slow. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would surely return.

Great placePosted Sep 13, 2014
If you want somewhere just to relax and enjoy the beauty and scenery this is the place. Plenty of jaunts to see the island. Great location, staff and rooms. Food was excellent!!! Totally enjoyed my stay and would go back and highly recommend.

Peaceful, unspoiled taste of Zanzibar beachesPosted Sep 9, 2014
Pros: The staff, the manager (Charles) who couldn't do enough to help us, the beaches, the pool, the general layout and the laid back feel of it all.
Cons: Consistency of the meals, eg one day the papaya salad was fabulous, the next day, different/not so. Better facilities in the room eg shower gel etc
Location: Fabulous, on an eastern peninsula at the end of a strip of beach hotels, Red Colobus monkeys/mangrove swamps snorkeling great tours. Spice Tour too.
We came to Ras Michamvi as part of a group in August 2014 having been in Tanzania and we really loved the hotel. The facilities are a little basic (eg no plug in sink and no shower gel or shampoo) but we loved that aspect of it all, it felt very authentic and the staff were so helpful, lovely and smiley that you actually didn't mind. As for the pool and beaches (there are TWO beaches at this place, one directly in front of the hotel and one to the side), well, they were absolutely amazing, white sand, turquoise sea and enough sun loungers (and hammocks!) to just loll about in the sun with plenty of shade to keep out of the sun if needed and a brach bar at each venue.

très calmePosted Jun 27, 2014
Pros: Le personnel très serviable, la piscine face à la mer, la petite plage privée, le confort de la chambre.
Cons: Les serveurs au restaurant sont très gentils mais un peu hésitants. Le service de ménage est trop lent.
hôtel au calme avec tout le nécessaire sur place et proposition d'activités. Idéal pour se ressourcer au bord de la piscine après une semaine de safari mais un peu loin de Stone Town pour planifier une visite.

A beautiful and romantic little getawayPosted May 24, 2014 on Hotels
This is a place to book for a romantic weekend together with your loved one since the setting is absolutely beautiful with the white beach just below the hotel and with the cousy bungalows to spend the night in. The food which is offered is really top quality and the order of the rooms are also great. Just a weak pressure in the shower but otherwise it was great. The place is a bit far off the main road though but whether you arrive in a dala dala, a taxi or private car you'll be able to find it.

Хорошее расположение и номера, но невкусная еда :(Posted May 4, 2014 on Hotels
Сам отель очень понравился, хорошее расположение, чистые и просторные номера, очень спокойное и уединенное место.. Очень хорош для релакса.. Но все испортила еда. В первый день нас с мужем отравили, причем очень сильно.. Ночью поднялась температура под 40 и пришлось срочно ехать в больницу (в час ночи) сделали все анализы, выписали лекарство и весь последующий день мы спали не выходя из номера. Потом еще 3 дня диарея и температура.. Из-за болезни мы физически не могли никуда пойти и есть приходилось в отеле.. все что пробовали было не вкусно :(. Если бы не этот нюанс поставили бы твердую 5.

Good value - fairly good effortPosted Apr 23, 2014 on Hotels
Very peaceful and clean, nice for solo, friends and family visitors. Lovely pool and view. Food uninspired- could have been improved easily. Had a sense that there wasn't enough managerial oversight on the weekend we visited. Small no-cost efforts could have improved the experience, such as putting the wifi in the dining area, rather than behind a locked door that made access unreliable. But good value, and nice staff who tried their best. Snorkelling was a worthwhile diversion. Remember to order your taxi for 30 min earlier than you really need it!

No beachPosted Mar 17, 2014
Location: snorkeling dinner at The Rock
We were really surprised to have no nice sandy beach like in the photos. The photos show a nice sandy beach. In high tide the water covers the whole beach area. In low tide, there is a beach area but there was no sand on it. Apparently, from December until march the sand is washed away then comes back??? ( I would check on this) Too bad I was there in February. Anyway, we had a very nice stay. We did a snorkeling trip that left from the hotel which was great. the pool is nice. The rooms are nice. If you are looking for a nice, quiet place, this is it. The beach (or lack of beach) was a disappointment.
