    Flott hotell, sjarmerende gammeldags men med alle moderne fasiliteter. God mat, ypperlig beliggenhet i Stone Town, men samtidig rett ved stranden med flott utsikt. Koselig å se de gammeldagse fiskebåtene gli rolig forbi om morgenen.

    Av en guide fikk vi vite at vi ikke burde bade i sjøen p.g.a. kloakkutslipp fra byen. Dette burde vi gjerne ha fått opplyst av hotellet. Hotellet var dyrt.

    Tout a fait bien sauf que le personnel ne parle que l'anglais et le souahily

    La plage a 20 klm est tres mal entretenue. Il n'y a personne dans l'hotel , pas même à la réception qui parle le francais; or je ne ne comprends que l'allemand et l'espagnol. Dommage pour un etablissement de cette qualité.

    Tout et en particulier les animations musicales : Concert de taarab et chanteurs et guitaristes au repas. La piscine est superbe et offre un magnifique coucher du soleil. Très bon massage

    Je déconseille le carpaccio, je ne l'ai pas digéré. Dommage de ne pas pouvoir faire les massages en couple la salle de massage est trop petite et pourtant la masseuse était très douée
