Beautiful, Friendly, Fascinating

Staff was undoubtedly the most considerate, best trained, thoughtful and improvisational of anywhere I have ever stayed, bar none and that includes lots of Shangri-Las, Peninsulas, Four Seasons, Ritzes and so on. It's a small mostly tourist hotel but I had friendly conversations -- and unusually creative, thoughtful and staff-initiated contacts on items from meals to hallway gadgets to knowing how to light a photo of me in the dining room to walking and shopping. Also a very clean property with lovely rooms and good views. Finally, Stone Town Zanzibar has centuries of history, and is tourist friendly like may UN World Heritage city centers...but not over-run with tourists. Very happy.
