Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Beauty isn't enough.
Hotel beach chair area is beautiful..however the beach is impossible to swim in. The tide is to far out. Also great deal of seaweed and other plant like things flouting in the water does not make it appealing. NO AC! I missed this part during booking and it ruing my stay, extremely hard to sleep in the heat at night with just a fan. Water in the shower and sink come out salty, very weird to brush teeth and shower. No bottled water, they filter water into a glass jar and sell it to you for 2-3$. Food was not bad, they have a nice lunch and dinner menu. Breakfast was the same everyday, standard eggs and toast. This area of the island is extremely quiet, no life, youll be completely alone, if you like that, its fine, I have a better time up north in nungwi with the nightly hotel band shows and people watching. Aside from that service is great, staff is friendly.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Can’t rate the hotel highly enough, mainly because of the service! Great food, very relaxed and you couldn’t be looked after better. Wonderful location. You must always remember you are in Africa so there will be some challenges but Magic will smooth those out. You would be missing out not to stay here...
