                Lost important belongings”
                We requested to have late check-out, but due to fully bookings it was not possible. We understood the situation, so we just checked out at 12 and used the spa facilities (which are not private by the way, so taking showers are not recommended). Unfortunately we forgot our charging station on the table which is impossible to miss actually, but okay.. our bad. During our stays in other hotels we would ALWAYS be notified if there were any left behind items when the cleaners checked and cleaned the room. Our room was (according to the reception) already needed for the next guest, but no one notified us that we accidently left our important items in the room. I find this very unprofessional as we were still in the same facinity until 6pm.

                From the moment I walked into this hotel I felt very welcome and at home,the staff at this hotel provide one of the most humbling,welcoming and peaceful experiences I have ever seen,from cleaners to the manager they go out of their way to make sure that you enjoy staying at this hotel and would want to come back.Most hotels struggle with WIFI signals,the WIFI at this hotel is super fast and always on 24/7.Their rooms are the cleanest,I enjoyed the African Theme Dinnner on Tuesday nights and the Gala Dinner on Friday night,both Gala dinners host perfomance by dancers and or Live Band, the food is also tasty.Special mention to the following good people Yunus,Ghosh and Lucy Thank you.

                Very relaxing, just becareful with reception staff that take advantage on your arrival and sell you lousy expensive trips with their friends before you know what's happening. I found that very inappropriate. Lovely living area, very expensive drinks but pleasant staff at the bar will keep you at it😀. Nice dinners, they could do better at breakfast. And need to improve quality of dessert.

                We were very happy and the staff made us welcome, but the food variety is not so great apart from the Gala dinner and the Zanzibar dinner. The breakfast variety on milk and cereal was very limited. they ran out of skimmed milk as well as all bran flakes. they need to improve on their display of food especially breakfast and tea. the eats for morning and afternoon teas were mostly pastry and sandwiches leftovers from breakfast.

                5 Stars is an absolut overrating for this hotel. The size of the rooms is ok, the cleanliess perfect but choice of foot in the restaurant is poor (i.e. never got fresh fish) and very repetitive. The white wine never was properly cooled and the requested ice bucked never delivered (reason: we don't have enough ice). The japanese gourmet restaurant was a total deception; we decided not to try the Carnivore after that experience. The so called 'kids club' is a joke as there is no equipment for kids and therefore no attractive activities; mainly sitting in front of a big TV-screen .... The very limited offer at the boutique is completely overpriced (sunscreen for 20 to 30 USD, hair conditioner USD 75 at the spa..... All in all, there are much better alternatives in Zanzibar

Wer schon solche Hotels besucht hat, wird enttäuscht sein, da der Vergleich merkliche Schwächen dieser Anlage offenbaren wird. Essen vernünftig aber nichts aussergewöhnliches, Frühstücksräume haben null-Ambiente, Gartenanlage prächtig und gepflegt, Zimmer im Kolonial-Afrikan-Stil sind ordentlich, Nassräume gut ausgerüstet, Strand und Meer farblich toll, sicherlich der Höhepunkt dieser Anlage. Lage ebenfalls gut, aber die Leitung verpasst es, hier ein Ferienerlebnis zu schaffen. Wer ein Preis-/Leistungsgedankengut hat, wird auf der Insel bei vielen anderen Angeboten zuerst fündig und auch glücklicher.
