Liked: Nice athmosphere, nice food, very clean pool

Disliked: It was not possible to swim in front of the hotel. Even during High Tide there are sharp rocks in the water. For swimming it's better to walk around 1,5 km towards Paje.

Liked: Beautiful location right on the beach, wonderful food reasonably priced so there wasn't any need to go anywhere else on the island if you didn't want to, very responsive, friendly staff, free wifi, spacious bungalow with the tropical feel we were looking for, swings, hammocks, and chairs all facing the beach, clean and inviting pool, super value for the money

Disliked: it's pretty far from Stone Town if you're looking to be able to go back and forth during your stay, but that wasn't a negative for our purposes

Nothing was too much trouble and everyone was friendly.Henna tattoos excellent And massages were pretty good.Trips are good value and affordable It was a fantastic 7 days - a nice cheap place with no fancy trimmings !!!

Disliked: Everything smelt very musty - but it's very humid so that might be part of the problem !

Liked: staff cordiale e competente pronto a soddisfare qualsiasi richiesta, stanza pulitissima, ristorante economico con pietanze squisite, a metà strada fra Jambiani e Paje perfetto per recarsi a piedi in entrambe le località!

Disliked: non affidatevi all' hotel per le escursioni, ve le faranno pagare il doppio del normale senza alcuna differenza rispetto a quelle offerte dai beach boys
