What an amazing hotel!

Pros: Great location, friendly staff, superb breakfast buffet spread, and a room to die for. Perfectly situated backing the winding roads of Stone Two
Cons: A built-in safe in the room would be a good addition and make sure you keep more fuel for the generator - the 2 hour blackout was not ideal.
Location: Right on beach, next to the ferry docks (easy access), five minutes away from the night time food extravaganza -and in the heart of Stone Town
First, for the most part, what a dream! The service was top notch, staff were professional and responsive, and they were friendly to boot. I booked using Travelocity and upon arrival, asked if they could give me a nice room with a view of the sea. The manager authorized an upgrade and I ended up in the best room in the house, with a spectacular view of the harbor, sea and sunset, and a bathroom to die for. Do note that the beach view with the food stands that previous visitors had seen at night is on hold for a couple of years until they finish renovations – all you see on the ground level now is a tall silver fence…but the front rooms all overlook the sea, so you still get that great view. And if you want a quieter option, go for the internal rooms around the very lovely swimming pool. The front view rooms aren’t super noisy, but they are right next to the road and the breakfast patio where guests might stay and chat well into the night. Plus, the hotel is right next to the ferry dock, so don’t expect to sleep in past 7:30 a.m. when the first ferry siren sounds. But why would you waste your time sleeping here! And definitely opt for breakfast, out on the balcony overlooking the boats and the beach joggers and kids playing soccer, and with fresh fruit of great variety, oatmeal and cold cereals, bread products including croissant and buns, veggies, crepes, meat samosas, cooked bananas – and eggs made to measure at the omelet station
