4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

The hotel is nice! The AC worked well, the WIFI was OK, but not great, the dinner was delicious! The workers were very nice and they went above and beyond! The only I didn’t like was that I paid for a breakfast buffet, but during the two mornings, it was served a la Carte and it was kinda slow. Other than that. I highly recommend it and if I come back to Zanzibar, I will stay there again.
