Cool place with everything you need, but there is no beach here (well there it is but it’s mud). If you want a beach to compliment your stay, don’t come here. However, if you want stone town it and prison island this location makes sense

Great place for some quiet time

We stayed for 6 days as a couple. Overall I think the hotel is quite nice. It does require a bit of cosmetic renovation. But the staff was so nice and helpful. Especially the manager Celene, she was so friendly and accommodating. We booked all of our activities through the hotel and were very satisfied with the service. But the best part was the restaurant. The view is amazing and the food is probably the best we've ever had. Especially the fried calamari steak. If you're looking for some quiet time this is the hotel to stay, but keep in mind that it's pretty remote.

Nice hotel, out of town, get sea view room

The hotel itself is lovely, very clean, good breakfast. However, we were not given any information at check-in about breakfast, hotel facilities etc. Also, our room was a city view room.... The noise on the first night kept us awake for the majority of the night. We would have asked to swap rooms but we were only there for 2 nights. If you have a sea view room though then I'm sure your whole experience would be much more positive as we cannot fault the cleanliness, food or pool.
