It's located on a nice beach. You can hear the waves at night when its high tide. The rooms are basic but adequate. Had problems with water supply at times as well as no electricity, but I think that is a problem with all resorts on Zanzibar that does not have its own generator.

We'd booked for 8 days as as the price was fairly low and the pictures on the website were quite appealing. Well, when we got there we realised how deceiving the pictures were, especially those of the beach which must have been taken from other parts of Zanzibar, as at that time the tide was very low and the beach rocky. We were supposed to be met at the airport, nobody turned up so we had to take a taxi whose driver wanted to charge us more than the actual transfer costs (US 50) and on getting there, the receptionist had a vague idea of our booking. Overall, the place looks pretty unkept and there's absolutely nothing around, so unless you have your own transport or driver, you'll feel like you're completely lost in the middle of nowhere. But you're kind of broke and can't invest in anything more decent, then, the place is ideal. Good for backbackers or pennyless honeymooners!

Rooms on the beach and close to sea. Thoroughly enjoyed our staff, and the staff were great and always on hand to organise tours and excursions.
