Our cottage was clean with good hot water and A/C. It was a quiet location on the beach. Food was good. The aquarium where you can swim with sea turtles in a natural lagoon is across the road. I enjoyed the hammocks on the property. Staff was friendly and helpful.

ood but...
I stayed for 4 nights and my comments as follow: * The room was very nice (spacious, very nice view "Mahaba 1", nice AC, hot water and coffee tray) * The staff very friendly *the beach is nice, but affected by tides, so the water going away sometimes during the day. Also the management need to watch the guest behavior with the shades and sun beds as during our stay we found some people putting their towels to reserve place and going to use other area of the beach or using the pool!! * The breakfast limited choices with acceptable quality. * The dinner set menu and tasty "compliments to the chef" * The area very rough.

8/10 Very Good

The place is fine for the price. Rooms are basic but functional (hot water, air con etc). The location is a little distant from Nungwi nightlife but most guests are probably looking for that. Breakfast is a little disappointing at most Nungwi hotels but this place is slightly above average in the breakfast stakes.
