  • 8.8

    Great beds, linen, clean room and hotel, food was good and interesting if a touch exotic for some palates.

    The beach adjacent is beautiful, and has some interesting locals doing their morning and evening exercise along it - don't think this is your Zanzibar 'paradise beach' though.....it is quite commercial and has a fair amount of boat traffic

  • 9.2

    Excellent location historical building interior design nice furniture helpfully personel

    Quality of food for the prices you pay
