great staff, hotel...not so much
Posted Jan 1, 2017
We stayed here to be away from the hustle and bustle of Stone Town - there is absolutely nothing else nearby -, but the hotel pool was crowded with local children in the afternoon with a DJ blasting music. A shuttle service was provided to Stone Town but the return was no later than 5 pm. A 1.5 l bottle of water cost 5,000 shillings (captive market). Finally, we never had truly hot water in our shower. On the positive side, the staff were absolutely wonderful and the buffet dinner (30,000 shillings) had different live entertainment shows every evening. The last two positives almost make up for the negatives, but not quite.
