We stayed 5 nights. The garden was lovely, large room, comfortable bed, the bathroom unfortunately was pretty old and not really clean. Breakfast was also average, but it was nice to be served on our veranda. Staff was nice.

Directly on the beach, but with plenty of security. The food was not great, even the breakfast, which are served very nicely at your room. I had to ask for salt/pepper twice rather than it simply being on the table. as well as jams.

Fantastic Place
We stayed for a couple of nights at Flame Tree Cottage and had a great stay there. The rooms were nice, spacious and clean, with hot water at all times. It was located right next to the ocean with great views out to sea. The staff were great and we met the owners who were very friendly. Breakfast was served on the balcony of each room which was a nice touch. Would thoroughly recommend.

Poor experience, this place is way to expensive comparing to the comfort. On top of this the smell over there is terrible... but I guess it is not their fault !

Very close to the village community
Not much to do there especially if it rains wich was unfortunate as it was for a whole week. Weak Wifi you can surf the internet but not stream or download. Friendly staff and good food at the on site reastarant. I wouldn’t suggest going to Nungwi for 2 week one week is enough. Yoga lessons are quite repetitive.

Warm & cozy local hotel with great staff
At first glance, this is just a simple hotel with far less of the amenities and infrastructure of the Doubletree 5 minutes away. There were glitches with minor plumbing issues but the staff immediately attended to every concern, and the owner personally got on the phone to apologize and give us a generous discount for the inconvenience. The overall warmth of the staff, and the simple but comfortable facilities really won us over. Excellent food, responsive service, and we got the best price directly from the hotel for the sunset snorkeling cruise that everyone on the beach is trying to sell. We much prefer this locally owned and green hotel to other chain hotels. The staff were incredibly solicitous. We would stay here again.

Not clean and not for the price.
I arrived at the hotel at 4 pm. My room was not ready. The toilet had to be fixed. The room floor was not clean. The air conditioner was not working. The bed had a bad smell. I would not go there again.
