I would have given 5 stars if check in was more smooth . Was given the wrong room and slow service to resolve it . Otherwise everyone and everything else is great . The food was excellent minus taste of asia was ok . Didn’t get to try the Italian restaurant. The main restaurant is excellent . The drinks and bartenders are superb . The facility is awesome and the beach area . Will be back again . The shisha was average but it’s so nice to have shisha on the beach . Shoutout to Aloyce, best bartender .

Staff was fantastic. Food pretty good. But limited ability to reserve at “restaurants” drinks are poor quality and limited…e.g a margarita costs extra. They use small plastic bottle waters. So not super eco friendly. Also expect folks to get up early and claim a chair with a towel and not show up for hours. But the staff bent over backwards to be accommodating.

19.5 out of 10
The resort is wonderful. Beautiful beach and facilities. They arrange everything you need from transport to excursions. Shops and restaurants on site. I really didn’t have to leave if I didn’t want to. Staff was incredibly helpful with this being my first time to Zanzibar. My literal only complaint was how hard the mattress was. But it was a minor complaint because I was barely in the room. Too busy out having fun.

Solid Option
This was a great resort. So many good things to share and just a couple areas of improvement. Pros: - Very nice & attentive staff! If you have excursions booked, reception will call you & let you know the tour operator told them the pick up time. Staff provided guidance & tour of where everything was located. - Entire resort was not crowded at all! Plenty open dining and resting options on the beach. - The food is decent for a resort. - We were able to check in a couple hours early & didn’t have to pay a fee. - There’s bar & towel service on the beach. Very convenient. - Nice book share area but they’re all in Swahili. - The spa was nice. Nothing special but decent. Cons: - About an hour from ZNZ airport (which many resorts are) - The room was spacious but the bathroom is an open floor plan. We had to put a bedsheet over the bathroom window for a privacy. - The alcoholic drinks are watered down. Don’t waste your money. - Most food options are buffet & the staff & guests aren’t req to wear masks so be prepared for that. And germs with people touching their noses & then the utensils in the buffet like. - There were flies all over the breakfast food each morning & the staff didn’t care so I’d be cautious when in line. - The customer service at the Italian restaurant was a bit subpar in comparison to the broader resort operations. Not a good experience there.

F&B lacking certainly not a 5 star
The hotel grounds and accommodation are super and you cannot fault the staff. The AI pack is lacking though. The drink selection was poor and the food was repetitive. Sadly the same food is served in the different restaurants.
