    confused”

    It is in a weird location... All by itself... The grounds are acceptable and the lobby is nice. The hallways are dark and the rooms are very gloomy. I never really felt wow'd by the hotel. it is a Tulip so was expecting a little more. Also the breakfast area is on the top floor, but flies everywhere so very unpalatable if you know what I mean. Again the questions would I stay there again? Don't think so

    Above average”

    The hotel is a distance from Stone Town and you will need a taxi to get there. The taxi fare is double when you book through the hotel - so probably wiser to book a local taxi. Staff were generally friendly - but occasionally not quick enough to respond to questions or requests. There is no clean beach close by - the hotel has a sea view as it happens to be situated on a cliff. Would also recommend being careful with the exchange rate when purchasing items/facilities from the hotel - as sometimes a higher rate compared to market value was used (which can make quite a substantial difference). Average hotel - would rate at 3 stars.

    The suite was very spacious and comfortable, however, we had to request an insect spray as the lounge room had so many flies. The restaurant was so full during lunch that we ended up asking for our food to be delivered to our room as there was no seating. The menu had no alcoholic beverages, which should have been communicated before we booked the place or checked in. The place could do with many improvements.

    The pictures don't tell the truth”

    Let's start with transport no one was there to pick us up had to cask the hotel to get picked up. After waiting 30 minds in a Strang parking lot someone came. The staff friendly, lobby nice but then you realize it is lobby slash sitting area they are not separate. The flies came to greet us like 20. Had to wait while they could find my confirmed reservation from Agoda so we sat for like over a hour while they tried to fix it, which they didn't until later. Our room the superior city view was a room with view of the parking lot. The pool was beautiful but not the loads of ants everywhere and the terrible smell from the beach that you can use. The smell is piercing to you nose, and unless the wind is blowing should be avoided at all times. The free breakfast is okay at best, menu is limited very limited. I preferred street food and outside food better. This is a Muslim establishments so no alcoholic beverages will be served. Would have left had I not paid up front and found somewhere better over priced.
