DEFINITELY NOT A 5 STAR RESORT, MORE LIKE A 2/3
This is NOT a 5 star hotel. I would rate it maybe 3 the most. The entire hotel is dated, the rooms are old and gross. There were ants crawling everywhere especially the bathroom. When I told staff they said that’s normal and nothing they can do about it. The shelf in the bathroom where all the toiletries are and glasses for brushing teeth was slanted towards the ground so everything kept falling on the dirty floor with the ants. The staff barely speak English and are rude. The worst part is that my husband and I both got diarrhea from dinner one night. The staff didn’t really care and said we’re probably allergic to something. The all inclusive food was not good and the package was very expensive. I suggest buying food and drinks a La carte because it’s probably going to be cheaper. Don’t stay here unless you’re looking to rough it a little.

10/10 Exceptional

A magical and exceptional setting. I chose this place by worst chance to discover Zanzibar for the first time. I assure you that it fulfills all the promises: excellent resting place, delicious food, incredible staff, the best animations on the spot (no need to go out: everything is there to occupy). I really liked this place and all that is proposed by the hotel: animated evenings, music, dances, shows, friendliness, enthusiasm, welcome, in short, I highly recommend this place Just a small drawback: the cleaning of the room must be done without waiting to be asked and also the shower back must be well maintained.
